Packages

Consulting and ministry packages for:

  • Local churches
  • Bible colleges and Christian schools
  • Camps and retreats
  • Conferences, seminars, and leadership development

We have found that amidst an abundance of ministry, leadership, and discipleship resources, churches can still be found struggling with an array of challenges. Burnout, Biblical illiteracy, relational obstacles, and congregational apathy are not uncommon.

We believe there are a few core discipleship principles, often neglected, that need to characterize the local church and that give a strong foundation on which to build effective kingdom ministry, strategies, growth, and discipleship. It is more than our words – it is our words plus our deeds that bring glory to God and demonstrate Biblical discipleship.

    Core Discipleship Principles

    To lay a strong foundation on which to build effective kingdom ministry, strategies, growth, and discipleship.

    • The power of reproduction and multiplication from Biblical, relational discipleship as integral to the life and health of the local church;
    • Identifying, building/discipling, and releasing youth and young adults to ministry and  leadership;
    • Leadership in the local church:
      • display the fruit of the Spirit and model Biblical priorities;
      • ministry leaders working together as God intended, understanding and applying the Word of God;
      • identify and deal with potential attitudinal or relational obstacles to successful ministry;
    • Bible Survey: a Two Testament approach
      • Biblical discipleship demands we continue growing in the knowledge of Scripture and putting that knowledge into practice/action.
      • It is imperative to treat the spiritual condition of Biblical illiteracy and shallowness. Failing to do so to will always yield the same results – anaemic Christian belief, practice, and discipleship, by under-nourished, immature believers.

    Strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God (Acts 14:22 ESV)

    It is evident that the reproduction and multiplication that result from relational discipleship must be an integral aspect of our strategy to reach health and life in the local church.

    The goal of this package is to prioritize and present the written Word of God
    in its entirety as foundational to Biblical discipleship.

    • Biblical discipleship demands we continue growing in the knowledge of Scripture and putting that knowledge into practice/action.
    • It is imperative to treat the spiritual condition of Biblical illiteracy and
      shallowness. Failing to do so to will always yield the same results –
      anaemic Christian belief, practice, and discipleship, by under- nourished, immature believers.

    With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you…Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Ps. 119:10, 11, 105 ESV).
