Jesus is still alive and present with us, 24/7. Today, Jesus is still calling ordinary people to “be” and “make” disciples. Jesus is still transforming, teaching and training these ordinary people for the kingdom life.
Disciples are apprentices of Jesus. Like the early disciples, today’s disciples are called, and then transformed taught and trained through a relationship with Jesus, knowing, following and serving Him. Every facet of teaching and training disciples of Jesus can be developed through the lens of God’s call.
