The Journey
An Intentional Discipleship Tool

What is Intentional Discipleship?

Christianity is an active faith. It is one of growing and stumbling and searching and transforming and facing challenges. It is a living faith, and faith is a journey.

While the journey isn’t always easy, we know as Christians we are called to be intentional about our discipleship. We are called to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, to pray, to read and study Scripture, be in fellowship with one another, to worship, to give, and to serve.

We know it’s hard to know where you are going unless you know where to start. We know it’s hard to grow without knowing where some good next steps might be. No matter where you are in your journey of faith, this intentional discipleship tool can help you discern where are you starting and where are you headed.
