Disciple Bible Study
The DISCIPLE Bible Study program is designed to develop strong Christian leaders in local churches through the in-depth study of Scripture. Through DISCIPLE, persons are strengthened in their faith and guided into service and ministry.
Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
A 34-week study that moves through the biblical story from Creation to the New Jerusalem. There is a Youth version of this study, which is written on a more appropriate level for high school youth. The hoped-for results of the program are to develop biblically nourished persons committed to live as disciples.
Disciple II: Into the Word Into the World
A 32-week study of Genesis-Exodus and Luke-Acts prepared for adult and youth graduates of DISCIPLE I: BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY. This study emphasizes the rhythm of coming to God and going for God, of being in the Word and in the world individually and corporately.
Disciple III: Remember Who You Are
A 32-week study of The Prophets and The Letters of Paul available to adult and youth who are graduates of DISCIPLE I: BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY. It calls clergy and laity to disciplined Bible study that will result in a ministering community nourished by Scripture.
Disciple IV: Under the Tree of Life
A 32-week study of Old Testament Writings and the Gospel of John; 1, 2, 3 John; James; Jude and Revelation in the New Testament. This phase of Disciple is available to adult and youth graduates of DISCIPLE I: BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY. It continues to call clergy and laity to serious, disciplined Bible study that will result in development of biblically nourished servant-leaders.
