We disciple men life on life
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” - Proverbs 27:17
A disciple is a follower of particular word or doctrine. To be a disciple of Christ, then, is to be one who follows Jesus and lives in obedience to his commands. The purpose of discipleship is to shape believers into committed followers of Christ who live out the kind of devotion that Jesus described through his teachings.
Forging Disciples is a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry devoted to growing biblical discipleship in the greater Sacramento region. We are a group of men who love God and who want to help other men get to know and love God too. We do this through life on life discipleship.
To encourage and equip men to be Christ-like servant leaders in their home, church, and community.
To expand life on life discipleship throughout the greater Sacramento region.
We come along side married men who want to eliminate the anger, bitterness, hatred, and hostility in their lives that is damaging their most important relationships.
Many men we serve are successful in their career and are business leaders who have a desire to change these same destructive habits at work.
Many of our men experienced neglect, abandonment, or abuse at the hands of their fathers and these issues still negatively impact them and the respect and trust of their wife, kids, colleagues, and friends.
I didn't become a believer until I was almost 40 years old. Discipleship has helped me get to know who God is, and what He wants from me. It helped me take ownership of my faith through surrounding my life to God. Discipleship helped me draw closer to God, and experience a great deal of transformation in my life.
My relationship with Christ really started to grow when I met Bill Coibion who asked several tough questions about by walk with Jesus. During my talks with Bill, I realized I hadn’t fully surrendered everything in my life to Jesus. This enabled me to lead my two sons to Christ and to join my wife in praying together each day.
WE FORGE STRONG MEN
We have discipled over 100 men life-on-life, teaching them to love God with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength, and love their neighbors as they love themselves.
Men are introduced to God’s transformational process of studying His Word, remembering what God has said, and applying it in his daily life.
They are guided to have a quiet time with God each morning, which includes praying the Lord’s Prayer, meditating on His Word, and listening to what God is saying to him.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
We meet men where they are, encourage them, challenge them, and hold them accountable. Throughout the disciple journey hope is ignited, peace becomes abundant, your life becomes filled with joy as the love from God fills you. We know from our personal experience of being discipled that your best days are ahead.
To learn more about discipleship, please contact us here. We will set up a face-to-face meeting to get to know you, explain what discipleship is, and answer all of your questions.
Once you’ve chosen to become a disciple with us, you’ll complete and return our on-boarding Questionnaire, a Pace of Life Index and Margin Analysis. Then, you will begin meeting with your discipler 1.5 hours every other week for the duration of your discipleship.
