Jesus last words recorded in Matthew were “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Once a person has become a believer, it is our job to teach them. Jesus showed us a model for making disciples which has been painstakingly compiled into study materials that we use to follow Jesus’ command. The model is meant to repeat itself which can be summarized as “disciple disciples to disciple disciples”. We are teaching the coaches to disciple their players to disciple others.
