MOUNT HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH

NEW MEMBERS

A key component of discipleship is the relationship inherent in the process.  However, given the busyness and distractions of our culture, discipleship tends to be accidental.  With the aim of initiating a journey – from intake to involvement – Mount Hope Baptist Church new members will experience a series of intentional opportunities to fellowship with other disciples, engage in ministry, and grow spiritually.  New members are intentionally ushered through their making, growing, and sustaining discipleship journey exemplifying the essence of Matthew 28:19, “go make disciples of all nations.”

For more information, contact Ms. Levon Davis, Discipleship Ministry Lead, at discipleship@mthopeva.org.


MAKING

DISCIPLES

During this process disciples are given an overview of their progression through their initial discipleship stages.  The intake team explains the steps new members undertake to be baptized (if needed or desired) and/or receive the Right Hand of Fellowship.  New members will also have an opportunity to meet some of The Hope’s ministerial staff and leadership.

GROWING

DISCIPLES

Ms. Jennifer Webster

This stage provides new members with classes that meet during the Sunday School hour.  The classes offer information on stewardship, the organizational structure of Mount Hope, an overview of the spiritual gifts, ways to get involved, and more!  At the completion of the classes, new members receive the Right Hand of Fellowship.

SUSTAINING

DISCIPLES

Deacon Walter Baines

Jesus was intentional about forging a relationship with the disciples.  They were by His side for three years.  The Sustaining Disciples Team seeks to build relationships with new members by being by their side for one year.  During that time, in addition to periodic contacts, an assigned mentor will assist new members in getting involved in ministry.
