“Creating biblical disciples in relational environments.”

S.C.M.D. Growth Process:
S- We will SHARE Christ with a dying world; making disciples of all nations.
1 Peter 2:9
C- We will CONNECT disciples into a leader directed small group.
2 Timothy 2:2
M- In small groups we will train disciples to MINISTER in the church, and in the world.
D- We will release those who have been developed to DISCIPLE others.
“Developing disciples through a reproducible growth process”
This consists of a maturing process of a follower of Jesus to go from being spiritually dead before committing to follow Christ to being spiritually alive and growing much like an infant grows to be a child, then a young adult and a parent.
This process also involves people to engaged the mission of Jesus through intentionally sharing Christ, connecting with people through relationships, training others to minister to both those in the church and in the world, and releasing people to intentionally disciple others in following Jesus.
