At the heart of the great commission is making disciples of all nations, not just witnessing or evangelism. “Disciples are made, not born” says W.A. Henrichson. And nothing can be truer. The key to disciple making is teaching ; and effective teaching involves a personal interaction. This is what we bring together in DIMEP for effective Christian living, growth and service.
The Discipleship and Mission Exposure Programme (DIMEP) is designed to help men and women who desire to grow in their personal knowledge of, and walk with the Lord Jesus. Men and women who desire to be shaped into His image. It is also winning and desire to learn the basics of evangelism and missions.
The goal is to help produce men and women who are victorious in their personal lives and who will be ablaze for the Lord in their ‘Jerusalem’ and are willing to go to the uttermost parts of the earth with His love, should the Lord so desire of them; men and women who will love not their lives, even unto death (Revelations 12:11).
It is my conviction that every Christian should be a mirror reflecting Jesus to the world; and every Christian should be an atlas bearing the burden of the nations on his or her shoulders.
If this is your personal desire, I heartily recommend DIMEP to you.
DIMEP is designed as a series of information teaching seminars and workshops on various basic Christian themes. It is practical but soundly biblical in content. It is also designed to be non-academic and non-theological but not anti-theology or averse to serious inquiry. Our main aim is to , not just lecture, but to provide open interactive sessions that will stimulate discovery and growth.
The course is for 3 – 4 hours each Saturday over a period of 12 – 15 weeks (i.e. 48 – 60 hours). However, adjustment could be made to suit a church programme. It will incorporate teaching seminars, workshops, and practical involvement in evangelism and missions. A visit to mission fields is also included in the package for interested participants.
A certificate of attendance shall be presented to participants who meet the minimum requirement for completion of the course.
