Discipleship is not just about information transfer, it is about life transformation so we are more like Jesus.  This can be greatly helped if we understand the processes of discipleship.  Lifeshapes are simple symbols for teaching these processes that are:
  • memorable,
  • easily taught and
  • can be easily transferred from one to another without having to rely on large programs. 

As we learn these tools and apply them to our lives, we will all become people who can pass them on to a friend who becomes  a Christian - we will all be able to do it, we won't have to rely on experts.

Here are some short descriptions of some of these shapes:
