Growing in Jesus is book 3 in the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition series designed for small groups. Six sessions explore Jesus' life and teaching to understand the true meaning of discipleship, walking as Jesus walked. Each session contains the five sections which represent the biblical purposes that lead to growth: fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism, and worship. At the end of each session are options for students to do on their own. A group leader's guide is also included.
These six new study guides have six sessions each and enable small groups to explore the power and life application of Jesus teaching on the five biblical purposes of a Christian life by closely examining Christs model in the Gospels.
