Are you passionate about your walk with Jesus? Why is it often easier to be excited about hobbies, sports, homes, and occupations than about our faith? Walk As Jesus Walked: Making Disciples, a small group DVD curriculum, presents teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan on location with faith lessons from the first disciples. You and your small group will be inspired and motivated as you learn what discipleship means, who can be a disciple, how to be a disciple, and what to expect as a disciple.
Each of the five sessions is planned to be fifty-five minutes in length with Scripture readings, a 25 minute DVD presentation, questions for discussion and reflection, and prayer. The questions for discussion are found in the Walk As Jesus Walked Discovery Guide 7. Questions for deeper study at home are also provided in the discovery guide.
