Discipleship

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

-Proverbs 27:17

The Need: Men are hungry for more. Sunday is not enough! They desire to live their faith more consistently, to connect with God more personally, to live an authentic life in Christ.

The Problem: We live in a hectic world. A hundred daily distractions appear worth pursuing. Yet they only take us further away.

The Solution: Quiet the noise and focus on what counts.

That’s where we come in…

Encourage to Faith Discipleship

The ultimate goal of discipleship is to become a devoted follower of Jesus.

Jesus loves us and desires the best for us. For that reason, He invites us into a life-changing relationshipone where we will find joy, purpose, and the rest that we have been seeking all along. It is a truism that as your faith grows your heart will grow along with it.

To that end, Encourage to Faith offers a personalized discipleship pathway to facilitate your growing relationship with God. If you’d like to learn more, please continue reading or email Kevin Murray at kevin@encouragetofaith.org.

One-on-One Discipleship

What does One-on-One Discipleship look like in practice?

Authentic discipleship is a simple process at its core: I listen. I encourage. I guide. In return, you gain new insights, learn to apply practical biblical principals, and begin to walk consistently in a transforming relationship with God.

How often do we meet?

Every situation is different. However, meeting on a regular basis (mutually agreed upon) seems to work best.

Where are the meetings held?

All meetings are conducted in person (Tampa Bay Area only), or if preferred, by phone or video conference. My goal is to give you the opportunity to meet in whichever setting is most conducive to your consistency and spiritual growth.

What should I bring?

A willing heart and a ready mind to grow in intimacy with Jesus.

What can I expect in a typical meeting?

We’ll begin every meeting with a prayer, inviting God into the process. The balance of our time will be spent moving through the key areas to which God is drawing you. These will typically fall under one or more of the following categories: Faith, Relationships, Life Purpose, or Growth. Our objective is to build on your successes and strengths, to get you unstuck from any specific challenges you face, and to create a lifetime of intimacy with God. In everything we do, we will always look to God’s Word as our ultimate guide.

What are some of the typical areas of focus?

Everyone’s journey is unique and the needs vary from person to person. Our goal will be to help you identify and grow in those areas where you sense God’s prompting. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Growing in faith and intimacy with God
  • Understanding the Bible
  • Grace and identity in Christ
  • Freedom from sin
  • Healing from pain and suffering
  • Marriage and fatherhood
  • Learning to abide in Christ
  • Personal challenges
  • Work-related issues
  • and many more.

What others are saying:

“While there are plenty of men who desperately need to hear God’s word, I believe the real key is that people need a mentor who can teach them how to apply His Word to life’s decisions. Kevin’s life experiences, and his background in conducting his business as ministry, are powerful qualifiers for ministering to others in the marketplace.”
