The specialization aims to equip a student to lead a church, organization, or mission in making disciples. Attention will be given to the biblical, theological, philosophical, and historical foundations for missional disciple-making and how these foundations serve in developing the methodological expressions of disciple-making. Skills will be developed to evaluate the effectiveness of disciple-making, demonstrate and reproduce the skills of a disciple-maker, connect the spiritual disciplines to disciple-making, and formulate a strategy of intentional disciple-making in the particular ministry context.
