Come & Follow Presented by Steve Case, President and Janitor, Involve Youth

(Matt 4:19 and Mark 1:16-18) This phase was a ten-month period when the five, plus others, left their professions to travel with Jesus.  Using this example of Jesus, Hull writes that a principle often repeated in His life is to give people time to make solid decisions.  The result in the disciples is that once the seed had sprouted in them, they immediately followed Christ as they were given an invitation, not a responsibility. Jesus is inviting people to become intimately and personally attached to Him as He moves toward His goal in the fulfillment of His prophetic mission.

Come & See Presented by Ronald R. Pickell, PCM Volunteer Coordinator, North American Division

(John 1:35-4:46) This “come and see phase” happened during the four to five-month period when He introduced a small group of disciples to Himself and His ministry, following His baptism in the Jordan River.  Jesus wanted to give these men time to allow the seeds He had planted to settle in their souls so that by the time He invited them to a deeper commitment they were ready to respond.

Come & Be with Me Presented by Steve Case, President and Janitor, Involve Youth

(Mark 3:13-14) A period of some twenty months constituted this phase during which time Jesus concentrated on the twelve disciples so they could go and preach.  This period required total investment.   The first thing Jesus did at the beginning of this phase was to sit them down and teach them the “backbone of the believer’s lifestyle,” which is what is commonly known as the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7).

Remain in Me Presented by Ronald R. Pickell, PCM Volunteer Coordinator, North American Division

(John 15:4-7) This phase of discipleship began with the most dramatic change the disciplesunderwent as Jesus prepared them for His departure and for their mission to the world.  What Jesus wanted them to learn in this phase is contained in John 14-21, much of which He told them in the Upper Room.  Ogden points out that Jesus spent 49 percent of His time with the disciples, and even more time as He set His face toward Jerusalem and the cross.

Pitfalls to the Discipleship Process Presented by Bernie Anderson, Senior Church Advisor, East Regional Manager, World Vision-US

(2 Peter 3:17, Romans 12:2) The journey of discipleship is not a smooth, easy path.  It is at times marked with hardship and temptations that threaten to derail our progress.  Today’s technology, even though it has open the whole wide world of information to us, has also opened very dark pitfalls.  We need to learn to navigate around, and sometimes through, those pitfalls in order to stay on the right track.

Pornography holds so many back from experiencing God's best. But leaving it behind for good isn't as impossible as it seems. Learn what it takes to experience breakthrough and live a life of sexual integrity.

Go and Make Disciples Presented by Tara VinCross, Senior Pastor, Azure Hills Church, Southeastern California Conference

(Matt 28:19) This final phase marks the end of the first discipleship training cycle and    begins the    second, this time with the disciples leading in the training of other disciples.  Sweetland points out that during His ministry Jesus was the one who issued the invitation to discipleship, but after His resurrection and ascension He issued the call through His agents, the Christian missionaries.   It is important to remember at this phase that Christ’s commission was not simply to make converts but to make disciples, therefore the church’s objective is to help new Christians progress to the point where they are fruitful, mature, and dedicated disciples.
