Semester overviews

Authentic Discipleship
Sem 1 Ordering Your Inner World

We often think about calling in terms of the advancement of the Kingdom when our first and foremost call is alignment to the King. Like the bride in Song of Solomon, we have looked after other people’s vineyards and garden, but our own vineyard and garden, we have neglected.

Sem 2 Discipleship Core Curriculum

In the making of a disciple, some say the most important things to impart are world vision, or the Word, or prayer. All these topics are important, but disciplemaking must be holistic, and the focus is not merely on topics but on the overall integrative curriculum. Discover eight biblical fundamentals as a core curriculum for effective biblical holistic discipling.

Intentional Disciple Making 
Sem 3 Foundations for Disciple Making

Disciple Making is the process of bringing people into right relationship with God and developing them into full maturity in Christ through intentional growth strategies that they might multiply the entire process in others also.

Sem 4 Discipleship and Mentoring

Mentoring is the empowering life-investment, in an accountable relationship, through which knowledge, skills, and attitudes are effectively modelled and imparted so that lives are transformed.

Spiritual Leadership 
Sem 5 Leadership Formation

Leadership is the ability to obtain followers. Jesus was a leader, so was Jim Jones, Hitler, Gandhi, Churchill, Kennedy, Mao Tse Tung. Leadership does not necessarily need a moral component, but Christian leadership does.
