Bill Hull is about to start a Disciple-making Equipping center to share his wealth of knowledge (he’s been writing about discipleship for 30 years) over the course of a semester entitled The Bonhoeffer Project.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer famously said, “Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.” You may know him best for his book, The Cost of Discipleship. Bonhoeffer was a professor, a pastor, a spy, and finally, a martyr. He believed that unless one followed Christ in a serious fashion, it was to cheapen the grace of God. The project is not a building with a staff. It is an idea, something patterned after Bonhoeffer’s Grand Experiment. From 1935–1940, he trained pastors in an illegal seminary. The students were instructed first and foremost in discipleship. The idea is simple: eight to ten people would spend a year together studying, discussing, and doing discipleship. It will begin in January and meet ten times at a once a month pace in 2015 (taking some time off around Christmas and Easter). Participants will read, discuss, debate, plan, strategize, and do a bit of life together.

Check out the PDF for more information. It’s going to be offered online starting in February 2015. I highly recommend it. Check out some of his books on Amazon.
