Life Transformation Groups
Benefits of the LTG System
A Life Transformation Group is a simple way to release the most essential elements of a vital spiritual walk to people who need Jesus to change their lives from the inside out. It incorporates the values of relational discipleship and produces the following benefits.
Here's how a LTG works:
What is a Life Transformation Group?
A life transformation group is a simple but powerful concept. It is a group of two or three that agrees to read a selection of scripture, and meet weekly for
Upon becoming a Christian you gave your life to Jesus and your identity is now found in him. This means that you should be constantly striving to be transformed into someone who lives according to the example that Jesus Christ set for us during his time on earth.
We can’t reiterate enough that there is no formula for it. However, as we have pondered the way Jesus made disciples and the way Paul and others lived out the Great Commission in the New Testament, we are convinced that a good way to start emulating all they show us about making disciples is through what we call a Life Transformation Group. Neil Cole did a great job of helping us think about discipleship and see a tangible context to start applying the disciples lessons we learn from Jesus. Life Transformation Groups (LTG’s) are simple, reproducible, and put the focus on becoming a disciple of Jesus–not a human leader. Anyone can do it. You don’t need special training. You don’t need a workbook. You only need a Bible and few people willing to journey together with Jesus!
But how can we put these principles into action?
Make no mistake, there is no formula or ten step process for making disciples. However, when Jesus told the disciples to “go and make disciples of all the nations,” I have a strong feeling they knew how to do what he was talking about. After all, they had been discipled by Jesus and observed first-hand “the way” Jesus turned them into one of His disciples!
So how do I make a disciple?
In Jesus' Great Commission he told us to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations." We believe that we are not simply called to hope that people come to church one day and get saved from their sin. We believe that we are each tasked with the words of the great commission to Go and Make Disciples. We believe that every Christian is a missionary to their co-workers, neighbors, and community.
