Core Ministry Training and Coaching

Disciple-making is at the core of J-Life SA. Learn about a disciple making strategy for your local church ministry in four modules that build on each other. These Modules are trained at a minimum of a three month interval period during which the trainees begin implementing the training. J-Life SA is committed to coaching those who do the training to ensure that they are able to implement the theory learned. Coaching for implementation follows the training of each module.

Specific outcomes:

  • Grow leaders as disciple-makers through training and coaching
  • Implement effective, wholistic disciplemaking strategies among church leadership teams
  • Multiplying individuals as wholistic disciple-makers among people in their ministry context (in the community of faith and the wider community)
  • Multiplying movements of disciple-making through multiplying leaders to do ministry like Jesus did.

Four Core Modules

J-Life SA offers four core modules that assist leaders to first and foremost be disciplemakers in their individual lives. Leaders cannot expect people in their ministry to be disciplemakers, if they aren’t living this principle out themselves. As each core module builds on the other, leaders then gain a broader understanding of what it means to move through the process of being an individual disciplemaker, to building a disciplemaking ministry, and then ultimately being empowered to multiply disciplemaking movements. Here's an overview of each module:

STRATEGY
