Life of Discipleship Map

We’re on the journey to be more like Jesus and are so glad that you’ve joined our community! As we follow Jesus’ invitation to grow deeper in our relationship with him, we seek to live transformed.

As disciples of Jesus, we want to follow his teachings. Our faculty will guide you as you study and learn alongside your peers. We will look at the cost of discipleship–counting the cost of rejection, suffering and self-denial. As we share this journey with others in the community, you’ll have the opportunity to join a D.N.A. discipleship group, as well as engage in other occasions for worship and fellowship. 

We will learn ways to steward all that God has given us and examine how we can bring our minds, bodies, spirits and all that we are in full surrender to Jesus. As we abide in Christ, God gives us the fruit of his spirit–love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control–so that his presence becomes evident in our lives.

We have resources available to help you along the way. This includes a Life of Discipleship map with videos from our faculty to help you begin conversations with others as you go deeper in your journey. Formation takes a lifetime, but in your season at Asbury Seminary, our desire is to journey with you in a process of deep, abiding formation. We pray that each of us becomes more like Jesus as we journey together.
