DISCIPLE GROWTH GUIDE

Disciple Growth Guide

We’ve created a tool to help you self-assess where you are in your spiritual walk – both to celebrate where God’s grace has already been at work in your life, and to prayerfully reflect on an area where you’re sensing a desire to grow.

Use this tool anytime. You can revisit it later. Take some quiet time to think and pray about it. If you’d like a conversation partner, we’d be honored. Contact us here.

HELPFUL RESOURCES ALONG THE WAY

Knowing where to turn for trustworthy spiritual resources is tough! We’ve compiled a list of our go-to recommendations for those just beginning to explore their spirituality all the way through the most mature disciples. It includes spiritual practices and books – many of them are available for check out in our church library (visit the church office M-Th from 9-12 for directions). This list pairs well with our Disciple Growth Quiz, which will guide you to the sections which will be most helpful for you today.

  • You feel connected to God at church but forget about God during the week
  • You’re seeking to make practical connections between scripture and your life
  • You’ve heard others’ stories of transformation but haven’t had one yourself
  • You desire to have a personal, life-changing encounter with Jesus
  • You seek to connect the “head” to the “heart” and practices of your faith
  • You’re tired and want to live at a slower pace that includes real rest
  • You want to explore what lies below the surface of your heart & experience healing from your past
  • You wonder how the lives of Christians are any different than the lives of everyone else
  • You long for healthy relationships and conflict resolution in the church and at home
