1 ON 1 DISCIPLESHIP
What is the Partner’s Program?
The Partners Program is designed to get you personally connected on a weekly basis with a mature growing Christian in order to help you advance in your understanding and application of ten biblical themes that are critically important in the Christian life.
After the experience of being led through the challenging chapters in the Partners Workbook the real growing and gratifying experience begins as you allow yourself to be used by God to guide someone else through the same material.
Each chapter in the Partners Workbook becomes the basis for your weekly meetings with your chosen or assigned partner, who has already been through the program. The chapters will direct you to read sections of the Bible that relate to that week’s topic and you will be prompted to answer specific questions about the implications and application of those verses.
Then, when meeting with your partner, you will discuss the truths you have studied, seek to sharpen your understanding and grow in your devotion to Jesus Christ.
“…a one-on-one setting maximizes the opportunity for spiritual growth and accountability.”
In the Partners Workbook you will be exploring the following
nine important aspects of the Christian life:
- Being Sure About Your Relationship with God
- Deepening Your Knowledge of God
- Learning to Study the Bible on Your Own
- Developing an Effective Prayer Life
- Living a Life That is Led by the Holy Spirit
- The Importance of a Good Local Church
- Learning to Love the Family of God
- Sharing the Gospel with People Who Need it
- Striving to be Holy in an Unholy World
What Makes Partners an Effective Tool?
The dynamic of personally discussing and applying these biblical truths in a on-on-one setting maximizes the opportunity for spiritual growth and accountability. The material is highly adaptable to your current knowledge and experience in the Christian life. Whether you are a new Christian or have been walking with Christ for many years, you will discover that the Partner’s experience will help you advance to the next level of maturity in your relationship with God.
How Can God Use Me?
The context and setting of Partners is also used by God to forge new lasting Christian friendships . Focused times of biblical discussion, prayer and accountability prove to mutually encouraging, supportive and edifying.
And as you are faithful to continue handing down this biblical content through the Partners Program, you will serve as an important link in the chain of Christian discipleship that was described by the Apostle Paul when he wrote: “the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will be able to teach others also”
(2 Timothy 2:2)
