In 2018, Circle J Ministries began teaching Discipleship Classes in the Lilongwe area. These classes include a series of twelve lessons that have been translated into Chichewa and printed in several sets to be used by the churches in our absence. These lessons cover why and how discipleship should be conducted through the local churches with the aim of equipping church leaders and congregations with the tools to disciple new converts.
These classes have been well-received. Circle J team members were able to teach the first three to four of the twelve lessons, with the remainder being taught by the pastors in the weeks after we left. Many of the pastors have asked for additional materials. Those materials are in development.
