Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matt 28:19-20 (ESV)
Discipleship is the continual process of spiritual maturation that happens in the life of a person who professes faith in Jesus Christ. By nature, discipleship is principle-guided and practice-centered. It involves spiritual disciplines like prayer, reading scriptures, worship, fellowship, service, and ministry both in the church and outside the church. The end goal is for believers to attain the likeness of Jesus (Rom.8:29). Discipleship is a lifelong process, so we want students to develop a foundation of the disciplines that lead to the development of Christlike character, helping them to live out Christian principles as written in the Scriptures and witnessed in the life of Jesus Christ. Although each person’s discipleship journey is unique, we have found it helpful to introduce students to the following topics:
The following are some of the major strategies that the ministry is using to undertake the work of discipleship:
Knowing and obeying the Scriptures is core to discipleship. We support the spiritual growth of students by helping them to develop a love for the Word of God. We primarily do this by facilitating group Bible studies.
Since community is essential for spiritual development, we encourage small group ministry among student fellowships. We promote the four elements of a Small Group; Mission, Fellowship, Prayer and Nurturing.
Students face all sorts of opportunities and challenges. We prepare them for campus life and life after the university by giving trainings on different relevant issues.
Local Church Connection
EvaSUE values the local church. Therefore, we help students to have a strong connection with their local churches both before and after graduation.
Our students are the leaders of both today and tomorrow. We want to develop their leadership skills through reading, discussion, and exposure to new things.
