The Discipleship Year



The purpose of the Discipleship Year is to equip, encourage and empower students with solid foundations for life as a follower of Jesus. The focus is on three strategic areas:

Making disciples

The good news of Jesus begins with making disciples who make disciples. Our prayer is that students’ passion for making disciples will increase as they press into the presence of God and are empowered by his Spirit for the mission of advancing the kingdom of God.

Growing through community

Together, students will engage with solid and relevant biblical teaching, explore and develop their spiritual gifts and use them to serve and lead within the local church. They can also expect healthy doses of fun, inspiration, and some practical, ‘hands-on’ kingdom experience.

Transforming Mission

The course includes a mission trip. On a mission, students will step out of their comfort zones, doing things they may not necessarily do in their context. It’s an exciting opportunity to experience and appreciate another culture and learn from other Christians in a cross-cultural ministry context.

At the heart of this year is the personal formation of those who will be participating in the year-long discipleship program.

Course Breakdown

Using a learning model delivered through teaching, pastoral support from Mentors and a Supervisor, retreats, conferences, cross-cultural mission, and an experience of involvement in the local church, this will be a very formative year.
