Prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness…this is what we commit to when we become members of The United Methodist Church, and its a big step. But A Disciples Path helps us look beyond membership, presenting an engaging approach to discipleship from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective. Discipleship is ongoing, so the 6-week study is perfect for new-member groups, but also works well in small groups of long-time members. It helps you develop spiritual practices, discover your unique gifts, and engage in ministry that brings transformation to your own life and to the lives of others and the world.
The Daily Workbook offers six weeks of daily readings (five per week), Scripture, a message for the day, and prompts for personal reflection.
"A Disciples Path has transformed countless new members into deeply committed disciples people who are using their gifts, praying in new ways, worshipping regularly and not only when its convenient, giving sacrificially of their financial resources, and seeking to be a witness to Christs love and light in the world. I am deeply grateful for this resource and recommend it wholeheartedly." Donna Claycomb Sokol, Pastor of Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church and author of A New Day in the City
