BECOME A PART OF THE ID COMMUNITY
With the 12-Month Consultation, you will have your own ID Instructor to help you implement the ID System in your local setting. The Consultation includes the Exposure Workshop, all three modules of training, and a full set of materials to implement the System.
You also become a part of the ID Community and you are invited to leadership immersions and retreats to share best practices and sharpen the saw with other ID implementors.
ID is more than a system. It is a mutually beneficial grassroots movement of disciple-making that seeks to transform a generation. Let's work together.
THE ID WAY
A Biblical Process
The ID curriculum centers around the Spiritual Maturity Pathway. We patterned this tool after Biblical pedagogy, and it allows you to assess a disciple’s spiritual growth to help them grow to the next level. The Pathway is an extraordinarily useful tool in helping disciples move from one level of maturity to the next.
A Simple, Duplicatable Approach
The ID Approach develops discipleship leaders as disciple-makers and
discipleship coaches. Disciple-makers are trained to help people grow in spiritual maturity and their commitment to the mission of Christ. Discipleship Coaches are developed afterward to make effective new disciple-makers.
ID is designed to work with different kinds of churches in different spaces—small, large, urban, rural, contemporary, or traditional. You may choose from several approaches to discipleship to best fit your context.
