Overview

Learn what the Bible teaches about making disciples, and how you can join the call. These courses will teach you both the biblical foundations of and practical methods for disciple making.

In Introducing Discipleship, Dr. Greg Ogden addresses the importance of discipleship and where the Church is lacking today. He looks at the ministries of Jesus and Paul, identifying what they did to be effective. Dr. Ogden then provides practical steps for how you can implement a disciple-making strategy in your church.

In Theology of Everyday Life, Dr. Dan Doriani guides you through Scripture, teaching you how to answer questions about the everyday aspects of life, such as work, friendship, and taking care of our bodies. With the accompanying video tutorials, you’ll learn how to explore these topics even further using your Logos library.

Another question people may ask you is, “What translation should I use?” Dr. Mark Strauss provides an educated answer in his course, Introducing Bible Translations. You won’t learn which translation is “best,” but rather, how each brings out different aspects of the original language. You’ll learn what makes a translation accurate and how to focus on the meaning of the text, rather than the form.

If you are passionate about training others to live a Christ-filled life—but you need more training—these courses are for you.

Individual Courses

ED101 Introducing Discipleship

  • Instructor: Greg Ogden
  • Video hours: 8

Dr. Greg Ogden examines what it means to be a disciple and how disciple-making can occur in the church context. In three major sections, the course considers the church’s missional mandate and core theological challenges to carrying it out, biblical models of disciple-making as seen in the ministries of Jesus and Paul, and the application of disciple-making models in the context of the local church.

As Dr. Ogden describes, “You will walk away from this course with a way to go about making [and] reproducing disciples in your church. That’s the takeaway.”
