Partners

1-on-1 Discipleship

The Partners Program is designed to get you personally connected on a weekly basis with a mature and growing Christian in order to help you advance in your understanding and application of ten biblical themes that are critically important in the Christian life.

The Partners Study

Partners examines ten important aspects of the Christian life through Bible study and discussion.

  1. Being Sure About Your Relationship With God
  2. Deepening Your Knowledge of God
  3. Learning to Study the Bible On Your Own
  4. Developing an Effective Prayer Life
  5. Living a Life that is Led by the Holy Spirit
  6. The Importance of a Good Local Church
  7. Being Intentional about Biblical Fellowship
  8. Getting Actively Involved in Serving Your Church
  9. Sharing the Gospel with People Who Need It
  10. Striving to be Holy in an Unholy World

Each chapter in the Partners Workbook becomes the basis for your weekly meetings with your chosen or assigned partner, who has already been through the program. The chapters will direct you to read sections of the Bible that relate to that week’s topic and you will be prompted to answer specific questions about the implications and application of those verses. Then, when meeting with your partner, you will discuss the truths you have studied, seek to sharpen your understanding and grow in your devotion to Jesus Christ.

The Partners Dynamic

The dynamic of personally discussing and applying these biblical truths in a one-on-one setting maximizes the opportunity for spiritual growth and accountability. The material is highly adaptable to your current knowledge and experience in the Christian life. Whether you are a new Christian or have been walking with Christ for many years, you will discover that the Partners experience will help you advance to the next level of maturity in your relationship with God.

The context and setting of Partners is also used by God to forge new lasting Christian friendships. Focused times of biblical discussion, prayer and accountability prove to be mutually encouraging, supportive and edifying.
