About Flourishing Disciples

Flourishing Disciples

Flourishing Disciples (formerly Discipleship Initiative) is a resource that we have de- signed to take your leaders and your church on an intentional journey towards disciple-making, personally and corporately.

It will train and equip an initial group of congre- gational leaders to grow as disciples, disciple others around them and help to establish a disciple-making culture in their church as a whole. We believe that discipleship is much morethan just knowing information. Discipleship is about the ongoing, life-long transformation of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others.

Equip a small group of congregational leaders to build a true disciple-making culture in their church.

• grow as disciples
