Discipleship and Mentoring Ministries

Dyan Pauls
Coordinator of Discipleship and Group Ministries

Discipleship is a cornerstone of Trinity Western University and, in particular, of Student Ministries. In its simplest form, a disciple is a learner or follower—a student of a teacher or mentor. At TWU, students are taught and encouraged to be followers of Jesus Christ, in obedience to His teachings and the Scriptures.

Praying, teaching, and listening are key elements in discipleship. In TWU discipleship programs, students pray for students (Jas 5:16), students teach students (2 Tim 4:2), and students listen to students (Job 4:4).

There are more than 30 discipleship groups on campus. A student leader cares for each group, and each leader is, in turn, mentored by a discipleship coordinator. In TWU’s program, men disciple men and women disciple women.
