Welcome to LAC Women’s Discipleship! Our Purpose is to intentionally equip LAC women to live out the LAC Mission Statement: We exist to glorify God by making Disciples who are growing in Christ, engaging in ministry, and sharing their faith. Maybe you are currently in a discipleship relationship OR maybe this is all new for you. The following terms will be helpful in our conversations as we develop a culture of discipleship among women at LAC:
Disciple – a faithful follower of Christ.
Discipler – also a Disciple; she takes the lead in a Life-on-Life Discipleship Relationship.
Discipleship – the intentional effort to grow in a faithful relationship to Jesus Christ our Savior by learning what Jesus said and then living that out. This can occur in a Life-on-Life relationship, in a Small Group, in ADC, etc.
Discipleship Relationships – where believers are equipped through the Word of God in Life-on-Life relationships, Small Groups, ADC, etc.; and are empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to become more faithful followers of Christ.
Life-on-Life Discipleship – a one-on-one discipleship relationship; letting someone in on your spiritual walk by sharing what you have learned.
Life-on-Life Partners – a Discipler and a Disciple who have made a commitment to meet regularly in order to encourage spiritual growth.
So much is already happening at LAC in the area of Discipleship: ADC; small groups; Bible Studies; Life-on-Life relationships; MOPS; etc. We want to foster a culture of discipleship among all LAC women who are actively seeking to grow as disciples . . . to make an intentional effort to grow in relationship to Christ ourselves; and to encourage one another as we make disciples who also seek out discipleship relationships. [Matthew 28.19,20; Luke 9.23]
We will connect with LAC women regarding Women’s Discipleship opportunities and resources through occasional informational flyers; explanations and forms on this LAC website; regular posts on our Facebook page (LAC Women’s Discipleship); and by word of mouth . . . because this is not a Program, but rather a Conversation about pressing on as disciples of Christ! [Philippians 3.7-14] Please pray for this culture of discipleship to grow among LAC women.
