A seven-week journey of Catholic discipleship.
Following Christ is the second part of the ChristLife evangelization process. It is designed to help people who have completed the Discovering Christ course to grow in friendship and union with God. By the grace of God, this is accomplished through praying together, hearing discipleship-focused teaching, and growing together in small group community through discussion and accountability. The teachings are not academic, rather they are focused on helping people to develop a lifestyle of living for Jesus our Lord.
A Typical Session
Each weekly session includes four components: prayer, video teaching, small group discussion, and practical applications.
1) Prayer & Worship
3) Disciple-Making Small Groups
2) Video Teaching
4) Weekly Practical Applications
Following Christ includes ten talks spread out over seven weekly sessions and a day retreat. The topics each week are as follows:
Introduction and Daily Personal Prayer
Hearing God in Scripture
The Power of the Sacraments
Forgiving One Another
The Spirit-Empowered Life
We Are At War Retreat
The Heart of a Disciple
Going On with the Lord
Each talk is 35 minutes long, except for the final session, which is only 18 minutes long to allow extra time for large group testimonies.
