Our Disciple-Making Model
At PRBI, we are committed
We believe that disciple-making must be observed and practiced within the student body.
- Discipleship is training students how they are to function within the body by teaching them who they are in Christ.
- The goal of discipleship is to see each student discipled and being trained to disciple others.
- The result of discipleship is seen in the development of student leadership which enables our students to minister and build into others.
- The necessary outcome of disciple-making is reaching out to the lost.
Discipleship at PRBI
The Greek word for a disciple (mathetes) is translated as learner. In Matthew 11:29, Jesus invites, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn (mathete) from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” The heart of discipleship is to learn from Christ.
PRBI invites students to experience discipleship by immersing themselves in our Christ centred community. We use the dynamic interplay of classroom learning, small group Bible study, and one-to-one peer accountability to maximize the discipleship experience.
As students apply themselves, they experience growth in their character, and gain skills and tools to reproduce themselves wherever God leads them in life.
