Following Christ
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

In Following Christ, we go deeper into the experience of communal prayer and worship that was started in Discovering Christ.
