Disciple-Shapes is the process that we use to fulfill our mission statement; "we exist to glorify God by making mature those who believe".
We believe that spiritual growth is primarily an organic experience. However, much like a garden, which grows primarily organically, there is a certain amount of mechanical work that is required. Ground has to be tilled, seed has to be planted, weeds must be pulled, and if rain is in short supply then irrigation will be required. When we bring both mechanical and organic together spiritual maturity will take place; see Philippians 2:12-13.
