Discipleship Vs. Equipping Ministry
Yes, there's a difference.
Check out my latest video that explains the difference between discipleship and the five-fold equipping ministries of Ephesians 4. In Matthew 28, Jesus calls us to make disciples. Often times, churches, ministries and the ministers within those entities neglect the primary call to make disciples in the name of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Equipping the saints is a good and vital thing for the expansion of the Kingdom of God, however, it should never be mistaken for or supplant our first mission to make disciples. Yes, there is a difference, and the difference is huge!
