You are exquisitely created by God
to be connected with others...
While growing in love and in your unique personality
Do you want to see your church thrive, and have a positive impact in your community? Do you want to see your individual members grow in faith as they become more like Christ?
Jesus invites each of us to walk a spiritual journey of transformation from the inside out, so we may then witness and help show God's light in a dark world: "You are the salt of the earth... You are the light of the world..." (Matt. 5:13, 14).
Integrated Discipleship is an approach to help your church grow... in faith and in numbers.
In Christian discipleship, we are training to become more like Jesus as we learn to do what he commanded: Love God; love others; make more disciples.
Each church needs a defined pathway for people to become more like Christ.
-Does your church have a reliable, repeatable pathway for spiritual growth?
-Do many of your members have some sort of consistent "quiet time" multiple days a week, where they read the Bible and pray?
-Do they know how to read the Bible for transformation, not just for information?
-Do you have some sort of small-group ministry where members commit to help each other grow in Christ?
-Does your church community have a system for replicating followers of Jesus?
-Do your members have both an inward focus (spiritual growth) and an outward focus (local and regional missions, as well as global missions to show that we belong to a global church)?

"Individual discipleship with Debbie Owen has been one of the most important events to shape my life. Through the discipleship time, with her insight and knowledge of the scripture, compassion, and love of God, Debbie turns on the lights in my sometimes dim mind, opens the window of my heart and points to the direction for my eyes to see the way, so I can walk the path. She does it with genuine encouragement, patience, and positivity every step of the way."
-- Yerim Kang, Disciplee
The Integrated Discipleship approach to spiritual formation is a new way to entwine 3 elements that are often "siloed":
-- Interpersonal small-group relationships: To help create a community-based disciplemaking culture. Do life together, pray together and learn how to read the Bible in order to help each other grow in Christ and show love to others.
-- Individual spiritual formation: For inside-out transformation. Cooperate with the Holy Spirit through intentional disciplines to become more like Jesus.
-- Increasing self-knowledge: Using the lens of the Neuro-based Enneagram for increased self-awareness and self-knowledge, be - and become - the authentic, beloved child of God you were created to be.
Integrated Discipleship is the approach used to help grow Integrated Disciples.
As you grow in your love of God, there is no part of you that does not long to know God even more fully and completely.
As you are more and more full of the love of God, it splashes out all over everyone else! Look for opportunities for: mission; hospitality; social justice; service; and disciple making.
