Discipleship is a pretty intense sounding word. Instead, I want you to picture calling a friend and meeting up for coffee somewhere. You sit down together and listen as he/she tells you about what’s been going on in their life lately. They might ask you for advice on something, and you might have to get back to them for an answer. After that, the two of you read a 2-page idea from the Bible and talk about it (again, you don’t have to have all the answers, you might even learn more yourself). Then you pray for them and talk about a time to meet up again in a couple weeks.
It sounds like no big deal, right? But, it could actually help a student grow more than anything else in their life!
Oh, and you will eventually go out and try to talk to people about Jesus too… but it’s not as weird as it sounds and we’ll get to that later.
