Discipleship

Getting discipleship groups happening in your church is easy!

One of the most effective ways to bring health and growth to a church is through discipleship in small groups of fours. To accomplish this requires a system that’s easy to follow since many Christians don’t know how to become a disciple or disciple others. Discipleship is a discipline developed over time in an envirnoment of accountability, personal interaction, and relationships. To create a “lifestyle” happens in a shared journey with a small group of two to three other saints committed to accelerate their growth in Christ, and starting their own group.

A discipleship system has been developed to do just that. It covers three years of learning and growth through six books called, The Discipleship Group: 26 Weeks with God through Partnership. Each book contains six tracts of weekly assignments. Each member of the group connects every week for a two hour session to breifly share the insights from their individual study.

Men’s Discipleship Groups

“I think it is important to let everyone know just how thankful I am to have had the opportunity to be discipled through the first two books. My insight and Godly wisdom have grown immeasurably concerning the Trinity, God’s promises and his Word. Lastly, I must mention the surprise gift, the two incredible lifelong friendships that have been created within my group as we walk out our spirituality and move side by side on the battlefield of life.”

Individual Study

“The Discipleship Group books are a must have for every Christian who wants to go deeper in their walk with the Lord, as well as, to learn how to disciple others along the way. I’ve been serving the Lord for nearly 20 years and have done a lot of studying and reading the Word but these books opened my eyes to a new and exciting way to hear from the Lord. I now daily experience the fullness of life He wants me to have. The journey has been so fulfilling and I can’t wait for book three!”

“Not only has being a part of this discipleship series really allowed me to dig deeper into the Word of God (and my relationship with Christ and with others), I have enjoyed leading a group in the same way and become a part of making disciples, just as Jesus did. Thank you, Jay, for writing these books!”

The Discipleship Group Success Stories

“I am so grateful to Jay for the work he has done to produce this discipleship resource. This is an amazing tool for pastors to advance biblical education in their churches. The material in this workbook is reminiscent of my own Bible School education and is invaluable to the advancement process of spiritual maturity. It has my highest recommendation for building relationships and developing disciples to advance the great commission!”

Pastor Kris Kawulok—Living Stones Fellowship, Huntersville, NC

“My spiritual life had become nominal at best. I was a Sunday Christian who depended once a week on my feeding from a pastor in the pulpit. I certainly wasn’t where I needed to be in gaining kingdom principle truth and knowledge. That is until I entered Jay Zinn’s discipleship training. There are many things in life people want, but aren’t aware of what they truly need. Starting this discipleship study has completely transformed my walk with Christ. The weekly studies have become treasures to me, studies filled with truth that has kept my gaze on Jesus more than anything else I’ve attempted. I’ve just completed Book Two and as I look back, I realize how God put this discipleship series in my life to truly bless me and bring me closer to knowing Him more. I recommend it to anyone who wants to exponentially propel their learning and closeness with the Father.”

“It is hard for me to imagine that I spent the first 25 years of my salvation on the same plateau that rests on the seats of the middle rows of the church sanctuary. It is even harder to imagine that I had no idea this was the case. But I am happy to report that the veil has been torn wide open by this multi-book, life changing discipleship series. There is no better way for the heavenly kingdom to invade this earth than through discipleship, and if you agree with that statement then I encourage you to explore the nature of God, his Son, and the Holy Ghost through the pages of The Discipleship Group. From a relationship plateau to a steep incline, put your seatbelts on, Jay Zinn through his giftings and anointing has created a ride that is virtually straight up!”

Bo Quickel

“The Discipleship Group books came at a pivotal moment in my life. Every Christian wants to please God and know what they believe. These books gracefully walk the believer into deeper relationship with the Lord. Even greater still, these books lead the believer into application. This is where life happens—being a disciple and discipling others.”

“Using The Discipleship Group has been epic in my quest to a much stronger understanding of God’s kingdom building principles and the life of Christ! It has been life-changing for me personally, highly informative, and this experience has created a lifelong bond with my Christian brothers in our group. This has been “top of my list” among the single most important decisions made in my life!”

Gary Nowicki

“Jay’s book is amazing! Allowing me to be discipled and then to have the privilege to disciple others is one of the most humbling and challenging experiences to have ever crossed my path. The book itself has impacted me in so many ways, challenging me to learn and grow like no other devotional, while also allowing me to learn and grow with another person. It has been an incredible experience up to this point and I greatly anticipate the release of each new book in the future.”

Evan Briggs

“Simple, but profound! Dr. Jay Zinn has given me a new biblical tool to reach out to the lost and hurting people of the world. It’s simple in its format, but each chapter builds upon the last to form a firm foundation of knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ. With society’s dwindling interest in religious affiliations, this book sets a new believer up for success without having to step foot in a church. It’s all about investing in a small group of believers hungry for more, just like Jesus did. I’m so glad Dr. Zinn didn’t stop at one book, but has written a whole series! Come, let’s be fishers of men together for the glory of the Lord!!”

“I started going through Jay Zinn’s The Discipleship Group—Book One in a small group led by my pastor and his wife when I had already matured a bit in my faith. Some of the teachings were basic, but they helped clarify and solidify my understanding of the foundational truths of Christianity. The readings were always excellent, and the lessons I learned from them helped me share and defend my faith when speaking to non-believers. Going through discipleship also helped me develop more discipline in prayer and Bible study. Most importantly, though, the discipleship books drove home the point that God’s purpose for me and for all Christians is to make disciples, and that has now become my top priority.”

Jenny Zhang Morgan

“The Discipleship Group has been an extremely beneficial tool for my spiritual growth. It has opened my eyes to many new truths and allowed me to be very efficient in my study time. About eight weeks into the first group with Book One, the Lord blessed me with my own group of three other men to lead along this path as well. I’m just as encouraged to see them grow as I continue on in my own journey.”

Adam Luxton

“I once thought of Christianity as a way to earn entry into heaven and receive God’s favor. Today I understand it is about a relationship with Jesus Christ, not religious practices. Not only has this discipleship series helped me to dig deeper into understanding God’s Word, each week’s assignments open the way for a constant pruning of the Holy Spirit and a more intimate relationship with the Lord.”

Clarence Harvin

“I rededicated my life to Christ more than twenty years ago. When I did, Jay Zinn was by my side training me one-on-one on how to grow my faith in Christ. The principles shared then are the same ones found throughout his discipleship workbook series. Proven methods for building a better prayer life, Bible study techniques and evangelizing principles that are fundamental to any believer’s faith. The workbook contains solid Biblical concepts that come to life through Jay’s unique insights resulting from four decades of being a pastor, teacher and discipleship maker. I recently completed the first six-month session of The Discipleship Group—Book One with another man in our church, and we are both multiplying those efforts by beginning another session with four additional men. I’m sure you can find a more expensive discipleship curriculum in the marketplace. But I doubt it would be any more effective at offering a step-by-step process for building up the saints.”

Brian Jergenson—Youth Leader and Elder, Mount Hope Church, Gaylord, MI

“What would happen if your whole church were not just disciples, but disciple makers? How would this impact your church and your community? Dr. Jay Zinn’s series, The Discipleship Group, is exactly the key you need to unlock this potential in your church. Every pastor who dreams for his or her church to become a church of disciple makers, I encourage you to begin discipleship groups with his first book immediately, and then progress through the rest.”
