"In most every business, you learn by doing. The apprenticeship model is much more effective than the classroom for cultivating entrepreneurs." — Andrew Yang


"Discipleship is being with another person, under appropriate conditions, in order to become capable of doing what that person does or to become like that what that person is. An “apprentice” of Jesus is learning from him how to lead their life as he would lead their life if he were they."

"A simple goal for the leaders of a particular group would be to bring all those in attendance to understand clearly what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and to be solidly committed to discipleship in their whole life. That is, when they are asked who they are, the first words out of their mouth would be, ‘I am an apprentice of Jesus Christ.’ This goal would have to be approached very gently and lovingly and patiently with existing groups, where the people involved have not understood this to be part of their membership commitment."  -- Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart

"Apprenticeship is that ancient system of equipping new and emerging learners in the fundamental principles and benchmark practices of a specific trade, profession, or tradition.  It usually involves a relationship with one who through experience and expertise has mastered the trade, and who equips students to learn through personal association with and observation of the trainer's work, some accompanying individual study, alongside real-world training experience.  After a period of intense relationship and training, the learner emerges as a journeyman, able to operate with excellence without supervision and, in time, able to acquire her own learners to help them attain similar mastery in the field and practice."

- Dr. Don. L. Davis

"You can’t be a disciple unless you’re with Jesus. How can He teach you, how can He apprentice you if you’re never with Him? In the days of Jesus the disciples had to be with Him because discipleship is more than just instruction. Oh, they could catch Him at the local synagogue every time He came to Capernaum and they could have listened to Him and learned but to be a disciple is to be an apprentice."  S. Michael Durnham

"Always pass on what you have learned.” — Yoda
