Distinctive Discipleship

Generalized approaches can never fully address distinct disciples.

If every Christian is in a unique place surrounded by specific challenges, why do we think that a widespread approach will work for every single one of us? The Distinctive Discipleship model seeks to help you design a specific plan for Christian maturity.

Based on the example Paul gave in Colossians 1:27-29, the model incorporates six categories to use as a framework in discipleship. Serving as a filter with which to narrow down your process, you will create a seasonal plan to work on distinct areas.
