The purpose of this project is to guide a church to develop a biblically based discipleship strategy that is intentional and ongoing. This will be done by focusing on current and future plans of developing a discipleship strategy of a local church. This project is influenced by my experiences in a disciplemaking process , observations and visits I conducted with hundreds of church leaders over the past twenty years, and my work to develop a church's disciplemaking ministry. This project proposes five steps toward developing a discipleship strategy that will encourage a lifelong journey of obedience that spiritually transforms values and behaviors in one's home, church, and the world.
