What’s the first Bible passage that comes to mind when I say, “Discipleship?” For many, it’s Matthew 28:19-20, which is the familiar Great Commission passage. We think of “making disciples” of “all nations,” and “teaching them to observe all things.” It’s a commitment for life, about life.

Did a person’s name also come to mind? If so, then you were blessed to be “discipled” by a mature believer at some point in your journey. How exciting would it be if your name was what came to someone else’s mind upon hearing this question?

Our goal as discipleship specialists is to make it personal. We love connecting people with resources and events – a personal touch – to help Texas Baptists “make disciples” in their context, but also to touch “all nations” with the love of Jesus. 

As you scan the wealth of personal touch experiences on these pages, our prayer is that you insert your name on the sign up list. We have intentionally – personally – planned each item with you in mind.   

As Dietrich Bonhoeffer stated, “When Christ calls a man, He bids him to come and die.”

Consultation and Training Events

Our staff is available to consult on site, by phone or by video conference with you and your church leaders regarding discipleship ministry in your church. We can also work with you and your association or area to provide leadership training events for those who lead the areas of Bible study and discipleship in your congregations. To schedule, or for more information, please contact one of our team members.
