A Christian Faith-based Social Media Network for Everyone !!
Minister Reggie has become a much sought after facilitator/ trainer to equip believers to share their faith with confidence in a very simplistic and organic way. After a 4-year journey of seeking God's will and purpose for his life, God gave Minister Reggie a vision to launch this ministry to train churches and church leaders to focus on making disciples for Christ, not merely decisions for Christ. The ministry is entitled, Intentional Disciplism, where evangelism is done within the context of the discipleship process.
Minister Reggie Alexander serves as an Associate Minister at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, under the leadership of Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr., where he has been an active and faithful member since 1995. During his tenure he has led and facilitated several classes and ministries within the Men's Ministry and Bible Institute. His most recent assignment is serving as the Director of the Men's Focus Studies Ministry at First Baptist.
Reggie is happily married to Milicent and they are the proud parents of three children, Ashlei, Gary and McKinzie along with 3 grandchildren. They reside in Upper Marlboro, MD.
Disciples Making Disciples
The Story Behind Intentional Disciplism
My journey to launching this ministry was birthed out of a serious introspective look at my own life. I realized that my walk was not lining up with what I was preaching and teaching others to do. And what was even more disheartening was that my life and lifestyle looked nothing like that of the disciples that I read about in the Bible. I noticed they risked everything to follow Jesus but I sought a life of comfort and convenience, rather than risk.
One of the barbers at the barber shop where I get my haircut, began to attend my church and he would always let me know when he was there. After a few months he was very excited to tell me that he had joined the church and that he was getting baptized. I was excited too and I was looking forward to seeing what God was going to do in his life. Then one day the Holy Spirit posed a very profound question to me concerning my friend that changed everything for me and thus was the seed that birthed this ministry. The questioned was; "How will Brian go from a spiritual babe to spiritual maturity?" I was left with the uneasy feeling of knowing that according to studies done by the Barna Group, there was a great chance that Brian would never reach spiritual maturity. I realized that many Christians get saved, attend church but never fully engage or become a spiritually mature disciple. Spiritual maturity is not based on how much you know about the bible, it is based on how biblically sound your response is when you face life's problems and adversity.
I began to seek God as well as the scriptures to find out everything I could about discipleship. I've heard the word discipleship used in church quite often but I wasn't sure what a disciple or discipleship looked like from a biblical and practical standpoint. Since disciples are commissioned to make disciples, I made it my goal and mission to fulfill that mandate, by being a disciple that makes disciples.
I chose eleven men to go through a rigorous discipleship curriculum with me. We were all challenged in our theology upon learning about true biblical discipleship. For the first time I knew what God required for me to be a disciple and to make disciples. I realized up to that point I was coming to Jesus on my terms, not His. I repeated that discipleship process with ten additional men and I chose 3 other men to meet with me on Saturday mornings to walk them through the discipleship process, following the model of Jesus of teaching the core, the twelve, the crowds and the multitudes.
I have found my purpose in fulfilling God's purpose of making disciples. I am committed to being a lifestyle witness for the kingdom of God and sharing the good news of the gospel with the world. God has commissioned me to start a movement of believers that are intentional about winning souls to Christ, leading them to spiritual maturity and duplicating the process. I pray that you will partner me in this kingdom endeavor.
This is an overview and summary of what RJ Alexander Ministries and Intentional Disciplism offer. We are not limited as to what you see described below. We can manipulate any package to fit your church's schedule and budget. All three services can be done together as well. The coaching session would consist of meeting with the pastors, leaders and anyone involved in the spiritual development process of the church. These sessions deal with assessing the current state and developing a plan to move forward. The interactive workshop of Intentional Disciplism would be for your entire congregation to be trained on how to accomplish your plan for making disciples that make disciples. This workshop is power-packed and highly recommended. And lastly, the consulting session helps you develop or modify any small group or secondary ministries to support the vision of the church and the pastor.
Coaching Sessions (church leadership)
Our coaching package is designed to solidify the mission and vision of the ministry. We develop a strategy to reflect a church that is intentional about fulfilling the Great Commission. After ensuring the mission of the church is in line with the Great Commission, we determine what a mature disciple looks like. Lastly, we empower the mature disciple to become disciple makers through the Intentional Disciplism interactive workshop.
Coaching Package includes
Assess Mission/Vision Statement
Characteristics of a Mature Disciple
Identify Primary and Secondary Ministries
Develop a Discipleship Plan
Evaluations/Assessments and much more
The Intentional Disciplism interactive workshop can be fashioned to fit into your church's schedule. The full workshop is done in three 2-hour sessions. However, the workshop can be altered to accommodate your ministry's schedule. The workshop is very powerful and challenging to the current western culture theology that most of us have adopted over the years.
