The Everyday Discipleship Course is designed to help people who are interested in growing in their heart, vision, and skills for obeying Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples.” This is for you whether you’ve never done this before, whether you want to grow your personal skills in this area, or you just want to journey with others who are on this life-long journey of learning to make disciples. No previous experience required!

This ten-month program includes introductory training, skill workshops, book studies and one-on-one coaching.  We will equip you with the skills and disciplines necessary in order for you to help others grow in their faith, draw closer to God, join God in mission and become more like Jesus. Participants can expect to invest 10 hours per month, which will include both weekly disciple making and coaching times and monthly online development and discussion sessions.

The Everyday Discipleship Course is being offered to followers of Christ across New Zealand who are interested in learning to help others grow in their walk with God. The course is being offered online but effort will be made to pair participants with a local mentor to help facilitate in-person coaching. Workshops will take place on Wednesday evenings and will run for 90 minutes.

Each participant will have a mentor and each participant will have someone whom they will have to find/invite themselves to begin to disciple. There will be monthly content to work through – Scripture and books – as well as monthly meetings in person or online. People will be required to fill out an application form, agree to The Navigators statement of faith, and have references.
Personal study, meeting with your mentee (at least twice per month), meeting with your mentor (1-2x/month), monthly online meeting = 10 hours per month?
