THE GREAT COMMISSION
Matthew 28: 16 – 20Â
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
ALL Christians are called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Â One obstacle to why some don’t is simply because they haven’t been taughtÂ how to lead someone to Christ.Â The discipleship training class teaches Christians how to lead a lost soul to Christ by explaining in easy to understand steps why all of us need Jesus Christ.
North East Baptist Church in Durham, NC, Â where the pastor isÂ Dr. Wesley Elam, Sr., Â provides a yearly class for Christians that want to feel confident about how to lead a lost soul to Christ.
In the photo below we see Minister Estella Feaster training and lecturing the students.
After a demanding six weeks of studying, writing term papers, participating in role playing and counseling I was able to catch a small glimpse of the students taking the final exam.Â Yes, a test is administered to make sure that the students understand the witnessing process and have committed to memory several key scriptures from the bible. A student must pass the exam before they are allowed to graduate as a trained discipleship counselor.
Below are a few pictures of students in careful thought as they take their exams.
Â Below are a few members of the NEBC Discipleship Ministry team.Â They helped to conduct classes as well as grade the test papers.
Below we see one of the students enjoying herself during the class.
If you live around the Durham, NC area and would like to learn how toÂ share the Gospel of Jesus Christ then I encourage you to get in touch with NEBC and sign up for the next class.
