PATHWAYS

Welcome to Pathways, a small group guide for growing as disciples of Jesus Christ. Pathways is designed to help individuals in the context of small groups become more dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is about deepening your relationship with Jesus through spiritual disciplines. Discipleship is a way of being and relating not only to the divine, but to one another. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is about being changed by God’s love into the person God has called you to be. It involves immersing ourselves in God’s Word, communicating with God through prayer, and serving our fellow human beings.

Introductory Session

This is the first session in our introductory series of videos that will focus on the three basic elements of discipleship: Prayer, Bible Study and Service. (Use this when you gather for the first time)

We suggest you do the modules in this order: Prayer, Bible Study, then Service. These modules each build upon each other so you use things you learn in one in the next one.
