Discipleship Qualities - What to Look For in Men

Found this article while going through a Pastor's packet from last year's conference.

A number of years ago Pastor Mitchell presented a list of things he looked for in disciples in a breakfast meeting. The following seven qualities were the result:

Faithfulness

The ability to continue on with a project, vision, or ministry.

Relationships

The ability to support and encourage a wife, maintain a marriage and have control over children. The ability to make and keep friends, resolve conflicts and remain flexible

Fruitfulness

A person who possesses skills in follow-up, group ministry such as bible studies and bands and who communicates clearly. This person also has momentum in personal spiritual growth.

Finances

Someone who is capable of managing the finances of a marriage and meets their financial obligations in a timely and adequate manner

Self-Motivation

The self-motivated can initiate and follow through on projects. They do not need a full game plan or hands-on guidance to finish the task.

Discipline

The disciplines of a spiritual life include prayer, bible study, evangelism and worship. There is also discipline in details, timeliness and availability form ministry that must be cultivated.

Teachable

Leaders and disciples must be receptive to discipline, correction and instruction from headship. This must be maintained when others are promoted, in times of laboring in obscurity and among one’s peers.
