Nurture Disciples of Jesus

The future of The Salvation Army depends on nurturing current and future generations of Christian disciples

Filled by the Holy Spirit, these disciples share the good news of Jesus, resulting in more disciples. Like athletes, Christian disciples need to practise staying fit for God’s demanding mission. Habits such as prayer, Bible reading, corporate worship, music, tithing and helping others are vital. Being a disciple of Jesus and experiencing the blessing of holiness is the way to experience fullness of life.

Research and Development - 'Nurturing disciples' success story 

From the Development aspect, the team have recently helped to bring to fruition a new collaborative SATCoL Donation Centre with a self-contained mission and worship space for Chesterfield Corps, after 15 years without their own space. The flexible, open and inclusive designs will hopefully help meet the needs of the local community and offer important overlap between both these ministries.
