Grow Spiritually

Through Annual Discipleship Groups

“Jesus came near and said to them, ‘All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'” Matthew 28:18-20 (CSB)
 
The very last thing that Jesus said to His followers before ascending to heaven was a command. Not just any command, but a command to make disciples of Him. It did not apply only to His followers with a certain gift-set or from a specific time in history, but rather to all followers of Jesus throughout the ages. Wherever you are in your Christian journey, there is a next step. Yours may be to accept Christ, to begin sharing your faith, to be discipled yourself, or to begin discipling others.
 
South Gate has trained many to lead Disciple Groups – small groups of 3-5 (same gender). In a Discipleship Group, you will receive a Bible reading plan (with 5 readings each week) and a journal to record what God says to you through His Word and how to apply them in their lives. Each week, the group meets to discuss the readings from that week and a lesson on the basics of the faith. There is a verse to memorize each week, and the group prays for each others’ needs, as well. New groups are added as leaders are available.
