1:1 Discipleship is an intentional, spiritual, life-on-life relationship in which one person helps another grow —under grace and into Christian maturity—through regular, focused, intentional time together.
The goal of 1:1 Discipleship is to mature Christians to understand their God-given purpose, their corporate identity as part of the body of Christ, their individual distinctiveness and gifting, and how to work with God as a committed servant and ambassador in every arena of life.
This developmental process that progressively brings Christians to spiritual maturity is primarily so that they are then able to reproduce the process with someone else furthering multiplication of both disciples and disciplers.
The fruit of 1:1 Discipleship is what Wooddale Church’s mission is all about. Wooddale Church exists to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ. When Jesus called his first disciples, he said: “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19) We believe that disciples are people who are: (1) Following Jesus (2) Being Changed By Jesus (3) Living on Mission for Jesus
1:1 Discipleship starts with a serious commitment to grow spiritually and is not meant to be taken lightly. Each party commits to the sanctity and purposes of the relationship in order for the time spent and the disciplines practiced to be effective.
Who: Seekers, new believers and anyone who wants to grow deeper in the life of Christ.
What: 1:1 Discipleship involves two people meeting together regularly for spiritual and personal growth. The time is spent studying the Bible, in conversation and prayer.
Why: To experience a transformed life and become more like Jesus in the context of a spiritual friendship with a mature believer.
