Whitworth's Academy of Christian Discipleship

Whitworth's Academy of Christian Discipleship

Seattle Presbytery

"Train yourself in godliness," the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, his spiritual apprentice," for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come."

To be a disciple requires a lifelong apprenticeship to Jesus. The ACD is designed to provide both instruction in and training for a life of discipleship. It is also designed to work in partnership with ministries and Christian organizations. The academy will be based on three foundational principles. First, it will equip and send people back to their local ministries as exemplars and servants. Second, it will train leaders to help establish a training program in those ministries. Finally, it will require commitment to a comprehensive vision of discipleship, which will include not only formal instruction but also deeper relationships, accountability, worship, spiritual exercises, and application to life in ministry.

The program will videotape all sessions and offer them virtually so anyone can participate.
