A Simple Discipleship System:

B. A Simple Discipleship System:

            The Prayer Tool organizes participation in Prevenient Grace. It helps people lead others through relational fellowship into a committed relationship with Jesus Christ.

            The Centering Prayer is a tool for Justifying Grace; it helps begin and/or renew that relationship of commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior.

            Life Transformation Groups or JUMP groups help new Christians learn obedience to Jesus Christ as Lord through habits of regular Bible reading, prayer, and accountability through mentoring. JUMP stands for Jesus Understands My Problems.

            The Quest process is a rite of passage through spiritual adolescence into spiritual parenthood. JUMP groups move through the Quest process together.
