One-on-One Discipleship refers to formal meet-ups on a clearly-defined pathway with clearly-defined goals. Because one-on-one discipleship is not the only avenue of discipleship in our church (and because we all have limited time), we do not expect one-on-one discipleship relationships to last indefinitely.
As you go through the Follow Jesus Bible study your disciple, you should be seeing them become a disciple-maker themselves — engaging non-Christians with the Know Jesus Bible study and helping Christians with the Follow Jesus Bible study.
You shouldn’t feel obligated to continue meeting with your disciple indefinitely, however, there may be times when you should continue meeting with your disciple to help them continue to grow
Here are some suggestions about what to do together after completing the Follow Jesus Bible study:
- Study a book of the Bible together. You can do this on your own using a defined Bible study method or using a guide like Knowing the Bible or Good Book Guides. (The Knowing the Bible studies are available for free on the Gospel Coalition website).
- Read a great book together. A few suggestions: The Discipline of Grace by Jerry Bridges, The Holiness of God by RC Sproul, None Like Him by Jen Wilkin
- Address a particular issue in your disciple’s life. Here are some suggested resources for common issues:
- Anger — The Heart of Anger by Christopher Ash
- Church — Expect More Sermon Series
- Marriage — Married for God by Christopher Ash
- For Men — God Centered Husband Bible Study (Free PDF)
