Discipling relationships are connections that we intentionally pursue for the purpose of growth and depth and in our walk with Jesus. We're asking all Vision Partners to do a few things to pursue spiritual growth both in the context of relationships and in our personal lives.
We do not formally create these relationships for Vision Partners. Instead we ask you to intentionally seek out these discipleship relationships on your own.
Normal Friendship Priorities Do we share interests? Do we click socially? Do we have similar preferences? Are we in a similar life phase? Do I think they’re cool or enjoyable?
Discipling Relationship Priorities Can they help me grow in Christ? Can I help them grow in Christ? How could they challenge me to grow or deepen my faith? Can we grow through each other’s experiences? Can we support each other in our daily walks?
Our disciplines of daily Bible reading and prayer are bedrock practices for spiritual growth.
Community worship and participation at the regular Sunday gathering not only foster our personal spiritual growth but they also give us opportunity to aid the spiritual growth of others in the congregation.
At each Vision Partner meeting we will have a discipleship challenge to focus on until the next meeting.
