The purpose of Omega Discipleship Ministries is to help believers grow into mature devoted disciples of Jesus Christ through intentional discipleship training. We have prepared resources to help turn seekers into believers, believers into disciples, and disciples into disciple-makers
Our approach is based on the conviction that making disciples is central to our Lord’s last command and therefore should be the first priority of the Church. This is more than just winning converts. It is also taking these converts on to maturity.
We believe that discipleship training should be intentional and deliberate rather than random and occasional. Jesus has told us to ‘teach them to observe all that I have commanded you’, and this we believe should be done in a deliberate and intentional way rather than just hoping it might happen automatically in the midst of other church activities. The aim is not just to win converts or to entertain believers. It is to ‘make disciples’. Only making disciples fulfills the Great Commission.

The Three C's
Omega Discipleship Ministries has come into being because of the urgent need to help churches and individual Christians get back to this central purpose of making disciples. We have prepared resources to help you in this process. These resources are designed on the basis that discipleship training should not only be intentional, but should also be:
• comprehensive, and
Discipleship should be more than just a 6-week course for new Christians taking them through the basics of the Christian life in a straight line series and leaving it at that. It should be cyclical, not linear. It should also be comprehensive and continuous. It is not enough to just cover the basics. We should take believers on a journey around a cycle over an extended period of time to help them grow into mature disciples of Jesus themselves, and then show them how to go on to disciple others in the same way. This cyclical training should be operating continuously like a dynamo at the hub and core of the church’s life so that disciples and disciple-makers are constantly being made.
