At The Discipleship Center, We Believe That Discipling Young Men...

  • is the means to help those who are plagued by drug and alcohol addiction

  • is the means to recovering from abuse

  • and is the means of giving life real direction.​

Most People Agree That The #1 Cause Of Problems Can Be Traced Back To The Home.

What if we could intervene before there is a new home life to ruin?  If we could intervene before at-risk young men start having families outside of wedlock, or develop a pattern of unemployment, or start using drugs and alcohol, we could help change the outcome for the next generation.

Why The Farm?

We see the glory of our heavenly Father all around us, but for many that view has been choked out by an ugly and artificial man made environment of brick, concrete and steel and all the noises of the city that drown out the chirping of a bird or a cricket. 

 

Many who have grown up in the cities and towns across our nation have no idea how their meat, eggs, dairy, and produce ends up in their grocery store let alone how it's made.

One of our highest goals at the discipleship center is to give residents an environment that is closer to the roots of civilization and even get a glimpse of the joy we had in the Garden of Eden. 

 

Putting God's glory on display for those in need so they may understand who it is that supplies our every need and shows us the way we were designed to go.

The seeds of truth


The seeds that we plant aren't "new seeds", but the same seeds of truth that have always been planted. Man is born into sin, and is an active participant in sin and the penalty for that sin is an eternity in hell. The good news is that God loved us enough that he was willing to send his son to pay the punishment that we never fully could and that sacrifice made a way for us to be saved.




Planting the seeds


There is nothing fancy about how the seeds of truth are planted. Anyone who will listen can hear the message, and whether they are ready for that message now or not, the seeds may still sprout at a later time when we aren't expecting them to.




Some things are out of our control


There are things that we can't control in the process of discipleship, things like the ability to understand or the willingness to repent. These are things that we pray to God for, that he would send his Holy Spirit to open the eyes of those who are in spiritual darkness and convict them of their sin and their need for a savior.




Watering the seeds


As a young sprout, our new disciples will be given some basic bible teaching, along with other basic life skills. We want to encourage our new disciples or students to learn about the things around them, not just facts, but learn to ask "why" and to grasp the bigger meanings of things.




Teaching young sprouts how to be self-pruners


A s our new disciples grow, we want to address issues that may "stunt" their growth. These things are sins, the things that miss the mark of what God intends for our life, the things that cause us not to follow Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and it's these things that cause us so many problems and unintended consequences in our life. We want to help our disciples identify these issues and prune them so they will grow to be mature.




The goal is maturity


Finally we want our disciples to become mature, or more like Jesus Christ so they can return to the world with a new life, a new way of looking at things, a new way of handling things. Our goal is to equip them with the ability and desire to function as an active member in a local church, and their community and to be an ambassador for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.
