A Biblical Process for Growing Disciples


MasterLife by Avery T. Willis is a sequential, developmental, small-group discipling process that enables believers to make Christ Master and to master life by developing personal, lifelong, obedient relationships with Him. Believers learn to practice these basic Christian disciplines as they grow toward Christlikeness: spend time with the Master, live in the Word, pray in faith, fellowship with believers, witness to the world, and minister to others.

MasterLife consists of four six-week courses; each designed to take believers to a deeper level of knowledge, commitment, and service in their Christian walks.

MasterLife Discipleship

MasterLife is a small group study for maturing believers as God’s disciples. These classes will enable believers to make Christ Master and to master life by developing a personal, lifelong, obedient relationship with God.

MasterLife consists of four modules: Disciples Cross, Disciples Personality, Disciples Victory and Disciples Mission. Each module is 7 weeks in length and must be taken sequentially.

Module I – The Disciple’s Cross
Through this study, the participants will experience a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ as He leads them to develop the six biblical disciplines: (1) spend time with the Master, (2) live in the Word, (3) pray in faith, (4) fellowship with believers, (5) witness to the world and (6) minister to others.

Module II – The Disciple’s Personality
In this study you will focus on Christ’s transforming your character into Christ-likeness through the work of the Holy Spirit. Although you are a Christian, you may wonder why you continue to sin despite your best intentions, as if two selves are at war inside you – one controlled by the Spirit and one controlled by the flesh. 

In this study you will learn how the Holy Spirit can change your character and behavior into Christ-likeness so that He can work through your will and your life.

Module III – The Disciple’s Victory
This study is designed to help you achieve victory in spiritual warfare. You will focus on outer victory as you learn how to advance against the enemy in spiritual warfare. This study also introduces you to the Spiritual Armor. You will learn the defensive weapon of the Spiritual Armor, which protects you, and the offensive weapons, which lead you to advance against the world, the flesh and the devil. You will learn how to demolish your personal spiritual strongholds and to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Module IV – The Disciple’s Mission
This study will take you to the next stage in your discipleship journey by teaching you what it means to “go and make disciples of all nations.” As you examine MasterBuilder, an illustration of lifelong spiritual growth, you will make plans for your continued spiritual growth, witness to lost persons, and begin discipling other believers. You will discover your spiritual gifts and will determine a ministry to which God is leading you. This study will equip you with many skills you need to make disciples and to minister to others.
