Welcome to RelationaldiscipleshipMinistries.com a discipleship development course featuring the Relational Discipleship Series, Levels 1-4. Other discipleship resources are available by clicking on the “discipleship tools” tab.
True discipleship is about relationship. Jesus Himself built spiritual discipleship networks that bore lasting and multiplying fruit. It is the objective of the RDS (Relational Discipleship Series) to be transgenerational, interdenominational, and scripturally sound. We believe that discipleship is is relational where believers are accountable to the Lord Jesus Christ, a discipler/leader, and to one another. It is our purpose and passion to see the body of Christ be trained and faithful in knowing how to feed themselves the word of God as the Holy Spirit enlightens, leads, and teaches us as followers of Christ.
The Relational Discipleship Series flows out of four themes from Jesus’ parable of the Sower: Knowledge, Obedience, Separation, and Fruitfulness.
Level One (Knowledge) is a good place for new believers to begin but can be taught to anyone that is hungry to know Christ. This level is about teaching the believer how to push the seed of God’s word down into the heart. Click here for details including a sample lesson.
Level Two (Obedience) is about receiving and acting upon the word of God during the good and trying times of our spiritual journey. Level two focuses on lessons that will stir and encourage the believer to obey God’s word removing the impurities from our lives. Click here for more details including a sample lesson.
Level Four (Fruitfulness) is the rewarding level. As we receive and obey the word of God and are set apart by the Holy Spirit, we experience the fruitful life thirtyfold, sixtyfold, and a hundredfold. These lessons will teach the believer how to share Christ and disciple others. Click here for more details and a sample lesson.
