Introductory Session

What is the VISION of WIN as a global church?

To be a WORD centered and Spirit filled international community of churches.

What is the MISSION of WIN as a global ministry?
               WINning people to become followers of Jesus Christ.

What are the CORE VALUES of WIN as a global community?


What is our MANDATE as a church? Make Disciples!
Matthew 28:19-20

Does your local church have a discipleship process of moving a person from salvation to spiritual maturity to significant ministry?

• Is it clearly defined and communicated to the entire church?
• What is our MINISTRY STRATEGY in fulfilling our mandate?
• What is Church Ministry?
• To Save & Build Lives!

Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
Apostle Paul / Ephesians 4:11-12(NLT)


“Building up a House”

Ministry is about Constructing lives.
The ministry of building lives is active and on-going. It is a process.

We are Co-Builders with God!
As God’s builders, we need a ministry blueprint.

Blueprints are essential – they show not only what will be built but also how it should be done. It guides how everything fits together.

Building without blueprints would be ridiculous.

Similarly, why would we attempt to build spiritual lives without a clear discipleship blueprint?

We need a Discipleship Blueprint or Process to guide us in our ministry of saving and building lives!

What is a Discipleship Process?

A Discipleship Process is the simple and clear steps of how a local church moves a person from a saving to maturing relationship with God through Jesus.

Discipleship is about transforming lives not informing minds. The desired outcome is obedience not knowledge.

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 (NLT)

Now, does WIN have a clearly defined discipleship process?

Introducing the WIN Discipleship Process

The Discipleship Process is not a formula for church growth.
It is our STRATEGY for Discipleship.

Discipleship is our GOAL. GROWTH is the result.

Why do we need the Discipleship Process?
                  Because it will help our ministry become simpler, serves as our shared strategy, and puts us all on the same page in fulfilling our mission as a church.
