When the leadership (especially the pastor) is ready to begin the development of a comprehensive spiritual mentoring (discipleship) ministry, it is important to decide and implement structure that will ensure ongoing accountability and success.
The Pastor (and main leadership) should personally take ownership / responsibility for the development of the discipleship ministry OR delegate this role and responsibility to someone else, providing support and accountability. This is NOT just another program with an ending and beginning, but a ministry that transforms the church and becomes part of its “DNA”. (Although tweaking and minor course corrections should continually be considered.)
