Disciple Maker

Week 4 | How We Can Change the World!

April 28, 2024

Big Idea

Any disciple of Jesus can become a disciple-maker. And when every disciple becomes a disciple-maker, we will change the world.


2 Timothy 2:2, Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 4:1-5, and 2 Timothy 4:6-8


In our current series, we will challenge one another to move past our fears and hesitations and intentionally pursue one of the most meaningful relationships you can ever have with another person, being a disciplemaker.

Opening Questions

  • What’s the most unforgettable transition you’ve encountered, whether it’s transferring a project at work, distributing responsibilities on a team, or even something as straightforward as passing the baton in a relay race?

Bible Discussion

  1. Read 2 Timothy 2:2. What is the overall theme of this verse, and how does it relate to disciple-making? How does this verse support our mission of helping people find their way back to God?
  2. Acts 1:8 is Jesus’ last instruction to his disciples before he was taken up into heaven. What does he tell them? What is the significance of this? How does this relate to disciplemaking then and now?
  3. Read 2 Timothy 4:1-5. These are some of Paul’s last instructions to Timothy, much like Jesus’s last instructions to his disciples. What does Paul tell Timothy to do? Do you feel these same instructions would be helpful to us today? Why or why not?
  4. In 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul tells Timothy he was “being poured out like a drink offering.” What does he mean by that? What else stands out to you from this passage?

Life Application

  1. Who has been instrumental in passing on teachings to you in your faith journey? What was the most important thing they taught you? Why was it important to you?
  2. In what ways can we apply the command to be witnesses in Acts 1:8 in our daily lives? Provide specific examples of how we can do this or how you have done this effectively in your home, community, or workplace.
  3. Throughout this series, we are asking each of us to find our own Timothy. When we become a disciplemaker, we can change the world, one Timothy at a time. You have what it takes to be a disciple-maker! Who have you asked to be your Timothy? How will you invest in them this week?
