Hello, my name is Aaron. I started Disciple In Training with the goal of helping new followers of Jesus Christ get established in their relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
I started this because this is an area in the body of Jesus Christ that still is lacking. My experience was that I got saved but there was no one available to disciple me. I grew up in church and has always been involved in church but only attended one that provided some basic discipleship training for a new believer. Things have gotten better but there are still some pockets who don’t provide foundational training about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
The purpose of this site is to help new followers of Jesus Christ get established and mature in their faith. I don’t consider myself an expert. I don’t have any formal training. My growth came through my own study of the Bible, reading books, listening to teachings and attending various meetings. I’m still a disciple myself, learning and growing, everyday, so I’m a disciple in training, also. My hope is maybe there is something from my experience that will help you grow in your relationship with the God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
What is a disciple? What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? I think reviewing a few definitions will give us a starting point to explore what it means.

We will be exploring what that means at DIT.
God bless you,
