Disciple I — Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
DISCIPLE is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christian leaders. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible.
The first study in the program is DISCIPLE: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study, a 34-week overview of the entire Bible.
Disciple II — Into the Word, Into the World
Intended for those who have completed Disciple I, this 32-week study deepens biblical understanding by focusing on Genesis, Exodus, Luke, and Acts. It encourages the practice of spiritual disciplines arising out of Scripture for the purpose of changing habits and transforming lives. Participants learn to approach all experiences of life as an opportunity for faithful witness and service. The materials fee is $40, which covers the cost of the Disciple II study manual. Students also need a Study Bible.
Disciple III — Remember Who You Are
This study is intended for those who have completed Disciple I and/or II. This is a 32-week study emphasizing the prophets and the letters of the Apostle Paul. This study confronts the persistent questions found in these texts: What are the priorities of your life? What are the priorities of society?
Disciple IV — Under the Tree of Life
Intended for those who have completed any Disciple course, this 32-week study is the final course in the four-phase Disciple Program. Disciple IV examines Old Testament books such as Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Ruth, Esther, Ezra, Nehemiah and Daniel, as well as the New Testament Gospel of John and Revelation. Disciple IV appeals to the senses and emotions through words, images, dance, and music. It not only shows the distinctive character of the Gospel of John, but it also provides a video-led worship experience of the book of Revelation.
