Women's discipleship through Fellowship is the intentional process of personally producing and releasing women leaders who know and express the authentic Christ to Northwest Arkansas and the world. Practically, this is lived out as truth and life shared in the context of authentic relationship for the purpose of multiplication.

In Matthew 28:18, Jesus spoke his last words to his disciples, "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

As a Christ follower today, discipleship should be ongoing and integrated into our corporate worship, family, workplace, ministry-specific, and one-to-one relationships. It is not just evangelizing, but mentoring: a spiritually older woman in Christ (discipler) teaches and models how to live a godly faith-filled life to a spiritually younger woman (disciplee). Formats may vary with each relationship, but Christ and the Bible remain at the center with spiritual maturity and reproduction, the goal.

Meeting locations and times are established between disciplee and discipler. Kid's TIME childcare is available on-campus on Wednesday mornings, 9:30 - 11:30am (Fall and Spring semesters only). Kid's TIME registration is required.
