[  Being a Disciple-Maker  ]

Leading Others Well

What it looks like to be a Disciple-Maker ​at Celebration!Church

Why This Matters

Jesus commanded us, through the authority given to him by God, to go and make disciples and teach them to follow everything he commanded (Matthew 25:18-20). We get to partner with Jesus in the work of the Holy Spirit by making disciples and inviting people to follow us as we follow Jesus. 

What does a ‘win’ look like for me?

My disciple is consistently growing in the ways they SEE, BE, GIVE, GO, with a goal to become a Disciple-Maker. 

How I Make a Difference

I PRAY (specifically) for (the spiritual health of) my disciple(s) and for opportunities for them to grow and make disciples. I PRAY for C!C’s sense of urgency to make disciples. 

I EXEMPLIFY what it means to be a disciple of Jesus in my daily life. I PROMOTE a culture of discipleship within C!C by actively taking opportunities to have discipleship conversations. 

I CHECK IN regularly with my Disciple to ask good coaching questions. I celebrate their “wins” and help them work through difficulties. I challenge them to grow in the ways they are SEEing, BEing, GIVing and GOing with Jesus. I remind them of how and why being a disciple of Jesus matters. 

I IDENTIFY when my disciple is ready to be a disciple-maker and help them transition into the role when appropriate.

I SEEK help and support from the Holy Spirit, and church leaders in my life. 

I AM accountable to and honest with the life-on-life leaders. I provide feedback regularly to improve discipleship relationships in C!C.
