Part of the mission of FCMC is to pass on skills for discipleship. We feel called to equip people with the tools they need to imitate Jesus Christ in their daily lives and help others do the same. Many followers of Jesus would love to be able to do that, but simply do not feel equipped. Earlier today, a friend asked me about our church. As part of the answer, I was explaining our approach to discipleship. He stopped me and said, “I think people are really hungry for that.” He went on to tell me how frustrating it has been for him, because he feels he’s had opportunity to talk about following Jesus with some co-workers, but doesn’t know how to approach them.
We do training for discipleship in “leadership huddles.” These huddles are at the heart of each Missional Community. In these huddles, we do two things. 1) We make plans for MC gatherings. 2) We work on our skills for discipleship. After a few months of being in a huddle, those who are being led in huddles and learning about discipleship will seek other people to lead, in order to pass the discipling skills on.
Question: Are you hungry for learning skills for discipleship? If so, let me know. I’d love to help you get into a huddle.
