Jesus told us to make disciples. But what is a disciple? How do we become disciples? How do we make disciples? How can I live the same life as New Testament disciples? During Taste Discipleship, a small group of participants will explore these questions as they live with missionaries in Japan.

Taste Discipleship is a 3-week discipleship training time in Miyagi prefecture, in the North East of Japan. Participants will receive teaching and training in things like power evangelism, leading someone to Jesus, starting long-term discipleship relationships, leading a fellowship of believers, etc. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to do evangelism in the local community, explore ministry gifting, and plan a short evangelistic trip by themselves.
