Most churches believe in the importance of discipleship. However, research shows most churches don't have a clear definition of discipleship, what that should look like in their congregation, or how to tell whether their discipleship approach is actually building disciples.

Consulting is your natural next right step.

At the Essential Faith Project, we aren't trying to sell you a program or curriculum. We want to help you come to a consensus on how you should approach discipleship, what methods would best fit your people, and how you can actually measure your effectiveness in making, building, and strengthening disciples of Jesus. Our Executive Director, Dr. Randy Christian, brings 45 years of pastoral ministry experience focusing on discipleship, and is uniquely equipped to come alongside your church leadership to facilitate your development of a coherent and effective discipleship strategy!

Think you're ready for what's next?

When you ask us to work with you, the first thing we do is listen to you--to hear who you are, what the distinctives of your church are, what you are already doing well, and what you need to do differently. We facilitate communication between your church leaders to ensure that you are approaching discipleship as a team. Then we help you develop the most effective approach to making, strengthening, and assessing disciples in your congregation. We can do this through video conferencing or coming to you to meet with your leadership in your congregation's setting.
