Discipleship Huddles Launching

Jesus is sending all of his followers…his disciples, to make disciples of all nations and people groups (Matthew 28:18-20). Many in the church however see this “going out” to be for trained missionaries and full-time workers only. We believe the Bible is clear. Disciple making is for all Christians. And yet we must be equipped as Jesus’ disciples before we can reproduce by making disciples. Whether you are just starting out  to “come and see” what God has for you or you’ve been following Jesus for some time join us in one of our Discipleship (D) groups or micro-groups (3-4 men).  We have 9 D groups launching in various locations around Greater Pittsburgh. See the list below.  Groups of 3-4 just like Jesus’ inner circle of disciples has been proven to be the optimal group size for transformational growth. In these groups trust and transparency aided by the word of God and the Holy Spirit’s presence help to build strong friendships and a brotherhood that can last a lifetime.

Below is our Fall 2023 Huddle List with contact information of our disciple makers and their area of the city. *Contact them for huddle locations and to get on their group list. There are 9 huddles listed below but we have 3 others meeting at The Washington County Jail. Please pray for our disciple makers so that 4th soil hearts (Sower & The Seed) will “hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” Mark 4:20

Tuesday Nights – New Kensington

We currently meet on Tuesday evenings at 6pm and led by Neal Walker. The meeting place is in New Kensington at:  Humble Ministries, 805 Walnut St., New Kensington, PA 15068

Jesus taught that God’s commands from the Old Testament, i.e. all the law and the prophets, can be summarized in these two things: Love God and Love People.

Jesus also commanded us to make disciples and teach them to obey all that He commanded. Since making disciples includes teaching them all that Jesus commanded, the New Testament can be summarized in this one thing: Make Disciples. Therefore, a disciple is a follower of Jesus who loves God, loves people and makes disciples. We are currently using 2 sources for our group; “Learning to Live and Love like Jesus” by Brandon Cook  and an online training tool;  https://zume.training/

Thursday Nights – South Park & Eighty Four

Jim Sed and Jim Buchanan co-lead this group. We meet at 6:00 pm every Thursday in either Eighty-Four (think Peters Township), or in South Park. There is always a filling dinner at 6:00pm, then study time. The last few months we have been doing the Zume’ Discipleship training. It’s the grass roots, no fluff, way to make disciples. We have taught men to share Gods story, followed up by their own story of rescue, as a Segway into men’s lives. There was a void that our men had in actually sharing the whole picture of God, and tying in their redemption story. We practice by sharing as a group, or one on one, which almost no men have done before. We teach to share not using Christianized words. The fruit has started to be borne in new attendees, dedications to Christ, baptism at our huddles, and the normalcy of just loving and inviting people into the kingdom with whatever platform you have. It beats bible bashing any day. We average 8-12 men with over 20 at times. An important goal of the discipleship training is clearly encouraged that every man is to be leading their own huddle and/or a house church soon. Contact us for our meeting location as it varies from week to week!
