About Growing Disciples and How to use this Site

Why do this course? Because we need a plan. Read more here.

GrowingDisciples is a year long self-paced program to help you grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is a  step-by-step pathway towards Christian maturity, no matter whereabouts you are up to on your journey of following Jesus. It has four strands: (i) Bible Reading, (ii) Prayer, (iii) Practical Exercises, and (iv) Community. Together, like the four legs of a table, these form a solid foundation for growth. On this site you can navigate through each of these strands wherever you see the following menu.

An introduction to each of the strands is found by clicking on each of the following links: (i) Bible Reading, (ii) Prayer, (iii) Practical Exercises, and (iv) Community.

The Bible Reading strand is augmented by a short Daily Devotional video, published 5 or 6 days each week. These will appear on the front page of this site.

GrowingDisciples is described as a ‘self-paced program’ because you decide at what level you will engage with each part of the course. Since we are all unique, all starting from different places with differing capacities– and yet all on the same journey of following Jesus– GrowingDisciples offers the freedom to tailor the course to our own needs.
