We strongly encourage you to take this intentional step toward growth as a disciple of Jesus by entering into a Mentorship relationship at Redemption. Mentorship is one aspect of our discipleship unto Jesus. We are going out of our way to not call Mentorship “Discipleship” because we are deeply committed to the biblical picture of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. If you are a follower of Christ, you are a disciple. Throughout the Scriptures we clearly see that God’s charge to His people is for every aspect of life to be lived out as an act of worship unto Him (i.e. Deuteronomy 6, Titus 2, 1 Timothy 5, and 2 Timothy 2). In the home, workplace, sports field, pub, drive-through, sanctuary, etc. all of life is all for Jesus, so discipleship takes place in all of life through all sorts of relationships and contexts.
Although discipleship cannot be reduced to a cup of coffee with a guru or professional there are great benefits towards having focused, intentional, and unique relationships with the goal of growth. We are excited to see how the Lord will continue to grow us as a diverse body of believers who can help each other grow as biblical followers of Jesus.
