Men's Discipleship

Matthew 28:18-20

And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."


Laboring in the lives of a few with the intention of imparting one's life, the gospel and God's Word in such a way as to see them become mature and equipped followers of Christ, committed to doing the same in the lives of others.


Why do we value discipleship?

Because Jesus calls us to make disciples (Matt. 28:18-20). During His ministry on earth, Jesus invested deeply in a few men - loving, teaching, and equipping them. We desire to follow His example.


What does discipleship look like for men at Perimeter?

Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship at Perimeter happens in small groups of 5-6 men who commit to meet together for one year at a time. Each group has a leader who has a heart to develop a safe community where men can be known, loved, and care for one another. This community helps one another know God through His Word, grow in Christ-likeness, and become equipped to invest in others.

How do I know if a discipleship group or a Bible study is right for me in this season?

  • Time commitment: prepare for lesson, come to weekly meeting, spend time with leader outside of meeting, attend workshops on occasion
  • Focused on daily walk with God, applying the Word, sharing hearts and lives, becoming equipped to invest in others

 Both discipleship groups and Bible studies will help you grow closer to the Lord in community. We would love to discuss with you what would be best for you.


When is discipleship at Perimeter?

Men’s discipleship groups meet formally once a week from September to end of April.


What is the process for joining a discipleship group?

1.    Fill out an interest form. The form lets us know a little about you, which helps us connect you to a leader whose group is meeting at a time and location that works for you. 
2.    Wait to hear from a leader. We do not assign groups. We will introduce you to a leader who is forming a new group or has space in a current group. We encourage you to talk with men you know at Perimeter to find out about potential openings in their discipleship groups.
3.    Meet with a leader face-to-face. This gives you both an opportunity to get to know one another. You can find out more about the leader's group and he can learn what you are looking for in a group as well.
4.    Pray and decide. After meeting with a leader, please take a little time to think and pray about whether to commit to the group.




What do I do after I have committed to a group?

Register. You register for discipleship only after you have agreed with a leader to be in his group. Registration includes purchasing your curriculum materials.
