Discipleship Ministry

Discipleship Ministry

Discipleship is an invitation to a life-changing journey with Jesus. It changes who we are, how we think and what we do at home, in the workplace, at school and in the church. As disciples, we become part of a movement through which Jesus intends to change the world and prepare people for his coming Kingdom. It involves our participation as disciples and disciple-makers through the Harvest Cycle.  – www.Adventistchurch.com 

The Discipleship Ministry at West Wilmington SDA Church aims to bring believers into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through our weekly Sabbath School program, baptismal classes and small groups. If you have any questions about our discipleship programs, feel free to contact maa12sr77@gmail.com.
