Whatever helps a person become prepared to grow in Christ, learn his or her gifts, and begin to make a difference is discipling.  Leadership ties all activity together and directs disciplining toward a common goal.  Each part of the process is intentionally guided and seen as small part of the larger corporate plan.  (Hull, 1990, 2010).

Technically, from the moment of spiritual birth, every Christian is a disciple.  Disciples are born by the Spirit to be made into mature reproducers.  There are to be made in every nation; therefore, every person in the church is a disciple and as the responsibility and divine ability to be what Christ desires. (Hull, 1990, 2010)

God ordained the discipling Church as His vehicle for reaching the world.  The Church has the abilities, finances, gifts, and Spirit to get the job done.  The unified, trained body of Christ is the most powerful expression of God on the face of the earth.  (Hull, Bill-1990)
