What is Together Growing Fruitful Disciples?

Together Growing Fruitful Disciples is a collaborative initiative by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and Andrews University. It is designed as a whole-church endeavor, based on the biblical view that the person who accepts Christ as Savior is called to a Christ-like life of spiritual, mental, physical, and relational growth. Growing Fruitful Disciples will help individuals and church ministry leaders at every level of church organization to better undertake the complex, multi-faceted process of discipling – that of enabling people to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ within the fellowship of the church, His body by:

Serving in God's mission of revelation and reconciliation
Living in Community to help one another know, love, and serve God
