The process by which teenagers grow to become more like Christ looks a little different from church to church, doesn’t it? There are some similarities, of course. But, the actual nuts and bolts of how this happens looks a little differently. The thing is that we all want the same outcome. We all want to see students grow in their faith. In a word, we want them to become disciples.

But what does a disciple look like? How would you define the end goal? The great thing is that we don’t have to try to pull this answer out of mid-air. The Bible has a lot to say about this.

A few years ago, I did a fun exercise. I read through the Bible looking for descriptions of disciples. I wanted to see the picture Scripture painted of what a Christ-follower looked like. As I compiled verses and passages, some common characteristics began to emerge. And as I distilled them further, I landed on six specific characteristics, or traits that all disciples have.

Over the years I’ve taught them in workshops and in small groups, both with teenagers and adults alike. These traits have helped me in my own life think about my growth as a Christ-follower.

Because I think they’re a really helpful way to think about what we want our students to become, I wanted to share them with you, too.

I’ve put together a short PDF that passes along these six discipleship traits and challenges you to consider how to implement them in your ministry. My hope is that you can utilize this picture to see your teenagers grow closer to Christ, becoming more authentic followers as a result.
