Discipleship Circle (Jüngerschaftszirkel)

Starting on 16. APR | 3 x 12 Sessions | Module III

This is circle training of a somewhat different kind: Although perseverance is part of the overall approach, the Jüngerschaftszirkel is much more than sports. In fellowship, we want to learn and train in the essential elements of discipleship. Don’t be afraid, this is completely muscle ache free, but is filled team spirit– exactly like Jesus’ example.

What is Discipleship (Jüngerschaft)?

  • Discipleship is centered in Jesus Christ.
  • Discipleship happens in fellowship.
  • Discipleship involves teaching, affects both everyday and major life decisions, and motivates others.
  • Discipleship depends on commitment: That’s why we encourage the group to stick together during the 12 weeks of a module in order to really get into a growth dynamic and is why we ask for a binding registration.

Why should you register for the Discipleship Circle?

  • You are a new follower of Jesus and want to grow in your faith.
  • You have been walking with Jesus for a long time and want to re-establish your foundation:
  • Basic truths can move from the head into the heart and theoretical knowledge can become practical.
  • You can bring your experience to the group and allow others to participate in it.
  • You can fill individual knowledge gaps.
  • Learn to become outspoken and share what you have internalized; helping others in your own personal way to make things understandable.
  • So, you can bring someone from your surroundings, who is new in their belief, and accompany them on their journey.

The Circle, in detail

  • During the 12 weeks of a module, we want to grow together as a group.
  • It is also possible to take a module, skip one and start again later.
  • Elements of an evening: Worship, Teaching, Team, Prayer & Ministry Time
  • Reinforcement: Handout with core content and training for personal reinforcement throughout the week
  • Why is there is a cost? The 25 euro registration fee is a symbolic act and 100% will be donated to our missionary Ulf Strohbehn. He builds Bible and discipleship schools all over the world. Since discipleship fundamentally costs us something, we want to use the registration fee, on a financial level, as a statement of your commitment.
