Coming Up

See the Bible come alive

Jul 2015    

“This was the disciple-making programme I had been looking for – and little did I know that it was but the beginning of a lifelong entrustment from the Lord for me to take it on since then!”

Calling pastors and full-time ministry workers: Desire to equip your church members with a deeper understanding of God’s Word? Been refreshed by and want to guide your church members in tackling the Bible from cover to cover together with their fellow brothers and sisters-in-Christ?

 

Sign up for the DISCIPLE Leaders’ Training Seminar held between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on 8 to 9 September, if you have been recommended by your pastor to be equipped to lead the DISCIPLE Bible Study series in your church.

 

The DISCIPLE Bible Study programme originated from the United Methodist Church and comprises four modules. “Becoming Disciples through Bible Study” (DISCIPLE 1) serves as the foundation and pre-requisite for “Into the Word and into the World” (DISCIPLE 2), “Remember Who You Are” (DISCIPLE 3) and “Under the Tree of Life” (DISCIPLE 4). Over the course of 34 weeks, DISCIPLE covers the entire Bible chronologically, following the biblical story from Creation to the New Jerusalem.

 

Started in Flower Mound, Texas, DISCIPLE Bible study came to Singapore in 1990 when the Rev Lily Castor conducted the first DISCIPLE Leaders’ Training for a group of Methodist pastors, one of whom was the Rev Dr Niam Kai Huey.

 

Now the Director of DISCIPLE Agency, the Rev Dr Niam said: “This was the disciple-making programme I had been looking for – and little did I know that it was but the beginning of a lifelong entrustment from the Lord for me to take it on since then!”

 

Register before 4 August for an early-bird rate of $180 for DISCIPLE 1. The closing date for registration is 25 August, at regular rates of $200 for DISCIPLE 1 and $140 each for DISCIPLE 2, 3 and 4. Visit disciple.message.methodist.org.sg or email disciple@message.methodist.org.sg for more information.
