The Making of a Disciple MTA Core Class (& Evangelism support for the Akron Planting)

DiscipleMakers is a course of study in practical evangelism offered at Hampton Roads Church since 1999. As it becomes part of the core curriculum for MTA, it will now include a rigorous expectation for world outreach, understanding conversion, solid exegesis of Scripture, and effective guided discovery to lead seekers to Christ. The class is alternatively titled "The Making of a Disciple" for the purposes of the MTA curriculum.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to view the class videos (two sets are available from 2015 and 2012).

This class will next be offered 16-18 September 2016 at our newest church planting in Akron, OH. Fall all who wish to join us, we'll arrive Thursday evening for a night of prayer followed by enthusiastic evangelism throughout Friday before the start of classes at 6:45pm. We'll also use our lunch break and evening break on Saturday to connect Akron to the work of Christ.

  • Understand Biblical conversion
  • Know sufficient Scriptures that promote conversion to Christ
