Discipleship : Meeting 1
OUTCOME: The disciple establishes a meaningful friendship with his or her discipler.
At its core, discipleship is done through friendship. Therefore, an adequate place to start any disciple making effort is to establish a meaningful friendship! This beginning module is designed for the disciple and his or her discipler to get acquainted with one another (if they haven’t already), while also learning the ins and outs of what the discipleship relationship will look like.

• What do you do?
• How long have you been attending your church?
• Do you have any family?
• What are your favorite hobbies?
• What’s your story about how you came to Christ?
• What are you hoping to gain from this discipleship relationship?
• When are good times for us to meet?
• Where is a good place for us to meet?
In obedience to Jesus, I commit to discipling (name of disciple). I will make time to meet with them regularly, pray for them daily, come prepared to meetings, and be an exemplary model of Christian living.

For the Disciple
In obedience to Jesus, I commit to being discipled by (name of discipler). I will make time to meet with them regularly, complete assignments, come prepared to meetings, and follow their spiritual leadership. I will do all of this with the aim of becoming more like Jesus so that I can in turn disciple someone else.
