What does Setting Out
Setting Out is the second step in the discipleship path. The resources on this page are for those who are seeking a connection with God and are ready to begin their own personal journey of faith. On this page you will find suggested practices to help guide you on this point in your journey, questions to consider, and recommended readings to dig a little deeper into your faith.

We've compiled a list of optional readings to help guide you on this part of your journey.
