Abstract
This demonstration project presents Discipleship training as a tool for developing and retaining new members and getting them involved in the work of the church which God has called us to. The words found in Matthew 28:18-20, are often referred to as the Great Commission from Christ. In this passage of Scripture, He tells those that believe in Him to go and make disciples of others and of all the nations. This should be the primary mission of a church. However, there are many challenges in the postmodern environment that detract from this mission. In a congregation of over 3,000 members, it is not easy for new members to become integrated into the ministries of the church. They can feel a sense of isolation. This isolation can lead to them leaving the congregation. The results of this demonstration project showed that Discipleship training is a viable tool for developing and retaining new members.
