How do you become a leader of a global awakening? The first step is discipleship. You learn to follow Jesus. Leadership in the kingdom of God is actually follower-ship. In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul the apostle wrote, “Imitate me as I imitate Christ.” He pioneered missions, planted churches, and pastored nations simply because he knew how to follow Jesus.
At RSM, that’s the focal point of the core curriculum. The Holy Spirit strengthens your foundations in God so you are not changed by the world God has called you to change. As you learn to follow Jesus, you develop your leadership abilities, too. You learn how to take other people on the journey of discipleship. Jesus initiated a global revolution by making disciples who would make disciples. That’s the strategy at RSM. You become a disciple who makes disciples, and you step into the global plan of God.
