Harvest Field Discipleship Studies
Harvest Field Discipleship Studies are in-home and individual studies that aim to help non-believers and believers alike get to know Jesus and become committed disciples of our Lord.
Through our individual studies, disciples meet in one-on-one meetings to pray together, read Scripture and Bible studies, and invite the Spirit to help us become more committed, Spirit-filled, fruit-producing disciples. The aim of these meetings is to become better witnesses for Christ through our lives and testimony so that we can become better evangelists and bring those around us to know Christ. We understand that we all need the saving grace found only through Jesus, and we have committed ourselves to making Him known. The inspiration from such studies comes from the call to evangelize given by Jesus in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). We are currently working on Multiply material by Francis Chan and David Platt found at www.multiplymovement.com
Our in-home Bible studies have similar goals: to help individuals get to know Jesus and the gospel as presented in the Word so that they can enter into a personal relationship with Him and start discovering the hope and joy that comes with that relationship, as well as the purpose that He has for their lives. These Bible studies are a little less intense and focus on small group meetings once a week where disciples gather together in homes, much like the Early Church, and learn about Jesus from the Holy Scriptures. On top of that, we devote ourselves to the teachings of the Apostles, as given through the Epistles in the New Testament, and to prayer and fellowship. These groups are a great place to build relationships with other Christians in a friendly, honest, non-threatening atmosphere. We want the disciples who meet together to enjoy their time, make friends, learn how to trust others and build relationships with others in a way that brings honor and glory to our Lord. We trust that the key to making dedicated disciples who are willing to share their faith and make disciples of those around them lies in the model that has been established by the Early Church as described in Acts, and the inspiration for such studies comes from Acts 2:42. We are currently studying the NavPress DFD series in Steven Severt’s home every Tuesday night.
