The Biblical Command for Home Discipleship

by Dr. Graham Hale

Southwestern D6 Family Ministry Journal (Volume 5)





Abstract: While a neglected practice for the average churchgoer, home discipleship is a practice that is called for in Scripture. God commands His people to instruct their children from His Word in the home for the purpose of reaching the lost for Christ and disciplining the saved, so they grow in godliness. There are many examples of this practice found in the Bible. This article examines the more explicit biblical commands for home discipleship.
