Discipleship Essentials - Trans World Radio Canada

Discipleship Essentials (DE) is a tool for individuals, lay leaders and churches to use in their existing discipleship efforts and ministries. DE is a multilingual discipleship content library available online for free. Each lesson contains a video, Leader's Guide, Study Guide and a text summary/devotional.

Content is currently available online in Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Cebuano, English, French, Farsi, Hindi, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish. In the coming months, Urdu and Vietnamese will also be available online.

TWR Canada partners with individuals and organizations to distribute content and train others in how to get the most use out of the DE content. Those who are trained then commit to teaching more leaders on how to use DE to enhance their personal evangelism and discipleship activities. In 2018, around 3,000 church leaders and volunteers across the Philippines were trained.


“I was Christian for 5 years, but when I came for this class (DE) last night I couldn’t sleep and I was thinking about what you said in this lesson. I knew Jesus, but last night I completely changed and now I really can say Jesus is my Lord and my Saviour. I believe he can change my life and make me new person. I put my life in his hand and trust him completely.”

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for training events around the world.
  • Pray for the translation and production teams as they translate and produce DE in their languages.

Your gift to Discipleship Essentials will go towards translation and production in new languages, distribution and training conferences.
