Encouraging whole-life discipleship

BRF and discipleship

We're passionate about helping people grow in faith and become more like Jesus Christ.

Over the years we've worked in different ways to help individual Christians in their discipleship, both through our published resources and apps and notably through the web-based discipleship resource Foundations21, which was available from 2006 to 2015.

We're continuing to work to address the challenge that discipleship poses to the church today. What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today? What effect might this have on our workplaces, our homes, our churches, our communities?

We’re wrestling with these questions as we develop this work. We’re also looking at what they mean for the particular constituencies that we’re engaging with through Messy Church, Who Let The Dads Out? and The Gift of Years. An area of focus at the moment is the question of what discipleship looks like within Messy Church.

Surely as the church of Jesus Christ, we should be in the business of investing in people. How on earth are we going to be effective as individual Christians or as churches within our communities if we do nothing about discipleship?
