Life-on-life Missional Discipleship is a gospel transformation process which involves a mature and equipped follower of Christ (a Discipleship Team Leader) intentionally and relationally investing in others in the context of small groups of 4-6 people (a Discipleship Team). Randy Pope, Directional Leader & Lead Teacher of Perimeter Church, describes the dynamics of life on life discipleship as
The life product that is valued in life on life discipleship is becoming a mature and equipped follower of Christ for the lost world. What exactly that means will be explained later. For now, just understand that one who is leading a Discipleship Team is making a commitment to his or her group. That commitment is to invest his or her life in yours, spending time with you, working a specific plan that has your spiritual growth in mind. The end goal is that you will learn how, and be motivated, to impart your life product as well. The context in which this happens is regular, once a week meetings with your Discipleship Team. These meetings have a relaxed, come-as-you-are atmosphere. Your Discipleship Team Leader acts as a coach, guiding the team in creating a supportive, confidential environment that fosters camaraderie and openness. Team members encourage one another as they share honestly about the challenges they face, and support one another through hard times as they grow spiritually.
It's important to clarify what life on life discipleship is not because there are so many different approaches to spiritual growth that are sometimes labeled discipleship, but really miss the mark.
Simply put, a disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. S/he is growing to trust Christ more, and more while learning to do and say what He said and did. As a member of a Discipleship Team s/he will covenant together with the other team members to meet weekly for the purpose of growing toward spiritual maturity as a follower of Christ.
Spiritual maturity is the life product that life on life discipleship aims to impart. But, what is it? Again, it's important to clarify what it isn't because there are so many definitions that fall short.
So what is spiritual maturity? It involves having both the spiritual life and spiritual skills of a disciple; what we call being a mature and equipped follower of Christ. We define a mature and equipped follower of Christ as a person who
- A faithful member of God's church

- An available messenger to non-kingdom people.
