We dream of a day when there are disciples making disciples on every team and athletic department in the Twin Cities.
Making disciples who make disciples
Starting in the fall of 2018, our local AIA and FCA
collegiate ministries began an official partnership to go after our vision and mission together. The purpose of our partnership is to glorify God by strategically leveraging resources and influence toward building Christ’s Kingdom on campus through athletes and coaches.
Staff Team: 13 AIA Staff
and 4 FCA Staff (see a photo of our team below)
This year over 400
student athletes, coaches and recent grads have been discipled through the ministry on seven local campuses
Campuses with Discipleship:
U of M, St. Cloud State, Augsburg, Hamline, St. Thomas, Macalester, Concordia St. Paul
What do we mean when we say "discipleship"?
Being a disciple is a lot like being an apprentice. Scripture points us to become lifelong learners of Jesus. Our discipleship groups are a small group of guys/girls who want to be learners of Jesus together. In his three years of public ministry, Jesus drew His disciples closer, loved them, but also gave them the opportunity to accept the responsibilities of discipleship. Jesus calls every disciple to disciple others
. (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 2:2)
AIA/FCA Twin Cities has adopted this mission as our mission statement: making disciples who make disciples.
A discipleship group is a place for disciples to become more like Christ as they grow in relationship with him, with the end goal that they would one day multiply their lives into others.
