Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Discipleship is the essence of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:20) and for Grace Assembly, discipleship is defined as “the process of becoming like Jesus Christ in every area of one’s being”.
For us, to be missional is to be “God’s called and sent people”. Missional disciples are therefore believers who are called by God and sent into the world to reach people locally and globally, to restore relationships, to bring healing into families and creation, and to call them into a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ, both within and beyond the church walls.
To raise Missional Disciples who are Disciple-Makers through building a Discipleship Culture that serves the whole church, we have developed the Grace Discipleship Framework (GDF).
The Grace Discipleship Institute (GDI) then resources this GDF through three equipping tracks:
1. The Disciple-Maker Track
2. The Life-Stage Track
3. The Leadership Track
