Disciple's Path Short-term Studies

 

Disciples Path is a series of resources founded on Jesus' model of discipleship. Created by experienced disciple-makers, it is an intentional path of transformational discipleship. While most small-group studies facilitate transformation through relationship and information, these disciple-making resources emphasize the principles of modeling, practicing, and multiplying.

  • Leaders model a biblical life
  • Disciples follow and practice from the leader's example
  • Disciples become disciple makers and multiply through Disciples Path

Choose one of the following 5-6 week Discipleship studies to do with your Community Group:


The Beginning
- Learn the Basic Practices & Elements of the Faith

The Beginning is an intentional Bible study for new disciples of Christ that can be used in one-on-one discipleship or small groups. It introduces the basic practices and elements of the faith, including the centrality of Christ, the crucial practice of prayer and Scripture reading, community, and what it means to be on mission for God. Exercises put weekly topics into practice, and meeting times work as well in one-on-one discipleship relationships as they do with typical small groups. This resource is attached to the broader Disciples Path series, but can also serve as a stand-alone product.
