We grow more from participation than we do from observation. It isn’t enough just to dip our toes in the spiritual water - perseverance (keeping on) is a means by which we get closer to Christ.

Bristol Baptist College are recruiting for the next group of Disciple Makers. The Disciple-Makers programme runs every Wednesday from September - May in Bristol, alongside their Ministerial Formation cohort. It’s designed for those exploring what their call to Christian service looks like, those who work for churches as Apprentices or in some other capacity, those who want to deepen their roots as Christians, or simply those who long to know and love God more, and can invest a day a week.
For more information see the Disciple Makers website and the documents attached below.
