SW Georgia Institute

The Downline Institute seeks to answer two foundational questions:

  1. What did Jesus really mean when he said ‘Go make disciples of all nations’?
  2. How do we do that?

To answer these questions, we teach, apply, experience and practice a disciple-making curriculum together. Our institute is a nine-month-long intensive training program committed to equipping men and women from all backgrounds in biblical disciple-making. The Institute trains its students in the Bible , starting in Genesis 1 and ending in Revelation 22, biblical discipleship and biblical manhood or womanhood.

Those receiving discipleship training at Downline Ministries learn how to help someone else grow their relationship with Christ. The Institute is a platform to point people back to the original strategy, demonstrated by Jesus and his disciples, with a multiplicative effect on the whole church, not just a few select members. We are building disciples to reach the masses – thinking globally, but acting small.

Our goal is that graduates will be well-equipped to make disciples in their homes and local churches and practice discipleship as a lifestyle in their communities.

If you have a desire to pass the Word of God into the lives of faithful men and women, so they can make disciples too, The Downline Institute is for you.

If you want to experience what a Downline class is like, please come for our Downline Preview Night on August 29th, 2020.  From 7:30-9:30 we will talk about what Downline is all about as well as sharing a helpful overview of the foundational principles of discipleship we teach in our Institute each year.  Come see what it’s like in person!

See what others are saying about Downline.

“Downline Institute has impacted every area of my life. The way I parent, engage with others, involve myself in my church, approach my relationships, and view my overall purpose in life are all different in light of the Biblical knowledge, teaching, and Lord's leading in the way of discipleship during Downline this year." - Jenna Willcox, Porterfield United Methodist Church

"Downline has given me the strength and the resources to jump out in faith and seek discipleship with someone while doing life with that person. It has opened my mind and heart to the importance of discipleship." - Tony Adiano, Greenbriar Church

"Downline took the mystery and scariness out of discipleship by giving practical strategies for making disciples and stressing that we are always on mission for Christ. I know God wanted me to go to Downline so I could learn how to be a disciple who makes disciples. Now he’s brought people into my path to disciple. I’m excited to see what God does in the lives of these women – and me." - Kathy Thurman, The Refuge Church
