Discipleship Two

(ONEdisciplingONE)

 

    This course is the follow-up course to Discipleship One and requires the successful completion of that course as a prerequisite for taking this course.  If you have not yet taken, and passed, the Discipleship One course then you should not take this course until you do so.

    This course is designed to be carried out under the local church where you are a member.  Therefore, you should seek and obtain the permission of your pastor to be a discipler or, as it is called in the Guide, a Role Model.

    Upon completion of this course, you will have discipled at least one other person whom God has put in your path.  The first person you should disciple is preferably the person that you led to the Lord during your Salvation course.  However, if that person doesn't want to be discipled, then you may choose someone else or you can ask your pastor for a suggestion of a candidate to be discipled.  He may have a new convert that he would like to entrust to your care.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • We do not keep records for Monitoring Only students.  However, should you want to keep track of your progress through the course, you may download and print a COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you can keep a record of all pertinent information for the course.

  • If you are a member of a Church, then please follow the instructions in this section.  If you are not a member of a Church you should be.
        Before you disciple someone you should have the permission of your/their pastor.  Show your pastor the material you are going to use to disciple the person, including the Milk of the Word and the Discipler's Guide, and let him know you have already gone through the program in the Milk of the Word and also let him know you are completely familiar with the material in the Discipler's Guide- familiar enough with it to know how to properly use it.  If he agrees you can disciple the person.
       The person you are discipling should be a member of the church where you are a member.  If they are not a member of your church, then you should seek your pastor's permission to disciple them and then you should seek the permission of their pastor for them to be discipled by you.  This is assuming they are a member of some church.  If they are not a member of any church, then you will only need your pastor's permission for you to disciple them.
       Your pastor knows if you are mature enough to disciple someone else.  The decision is up to them.  Do not be angry with them if they refuse to give you their permission.  If they say, "No," then realize they are doing it for your own good and for the good of the one you wish to disciple.  Should your pastor say no, then ask him when he thinks you will be ready to disciple someone.  Maybe he can give you some material to help you mature to the point you need to be to properly and biblically disciple someone else.  Discuss it with your pastor in a non-confrontational manner and remember that God says they must give an answer for your soul.  In other words your pastor is responsible to God for your growth toward maturity; and if they don't believe you are ready to take on the job and responsibility of discipling someone, then gracefully bow to their leadership and authority.  In no way be rebellious or resentful concerning their decision.  Simply appreciate their love and care for you and respect their authority in this matter.  If they, and the pastor of the person you wish to disciple should they be a member of another church, agree, then you may begin this course starting on the day that the Pastor Ministry Confirmation forms are submitted by them.  Find out the date they submitted the forms because your attendance in this course officially starts on the day both forms are submitted to us.

  • Read & Study the entire textbook, Discipler's Guide, by Dr. James Wilkins, before you start discipling someone.  (You will find the link at the end of the instructions.)

  • Download and print a copy of "The Milk of the Word" from our library for the new convert or, if you prefer, you can order a copy of it from Dr. James Wilkins at leatherman_wave@yahoo.com or phone: (505) 747-6917.  If you order hard-copies, please indicate that you are a student of Salt Lake Bible College or Salt Lake Baptist College at the time of your order.

  • Complete all of the exercises as you take the new convert/disciple through their Milk of the Word discipleship book and do so according to the time-table given in the textbook.

  • Attendance:  The Milk of the Word textbook that the new convert will study under your direction is divided into ten sections plus the preliminary material.  The preliminary material, which you will take them through when you first give them their book, is considered one lesson and your preparation, which is a complete reading and study of your Guide and spiritually readying yourself prior to discipling them, is also considered one lesson.
    Course attendance is suggested to be 12 weeks plus as many extra weeks as may be needed should your disciple not finish their work or if they skipped a week and then continued with their book.
        Because the new convert needs to stay on a weekly schedule with their lessons in The Milk of The Word, then you will need to stay on the exact same weekly schedule as you meet with them weekly to discuss the lessons.  Therefore, this course requires an exact course attendance in contrast to other courses which only have a minimum suggested course attendance.
    Lesson attendance should be 1 week per lesson.
