Go Deeper Than Surface-Level

Move beyond the fun and games and teach with resources that are centered in God's Word and draw students closer to God. The Life walks through the journey of a Christ-follower's discipleship, broken into three parts and several units:

  • Introduction to Discipleship
  • The Picture of a Disciple
    • A Disciple Surrenders to a Gospel-Centered Life
    • A Disciple Hungers to Know God
    • A Disciple Embraces Christian Community
    • A Disciple Engages With His or Her Surroundings
    • A Disciple Has a Desire to Worship God
    • A Disciple Invests in Multiplication
  • The Cost of Discipleship

Do your students really have a grasp on what discipleship looks like? Further, do they understand that discipleship doesn't start when they're older—it starts right now?

Speak Life Into Your Students

The call to faith in Christ is a call to action. It’s a call to a transformed life, a life that has a specific look to it. This life is called discipleship. And it’s the expected path of all who come to faith in Jesus. 

The call to saving faith is a simultaneous call to follow Jesus in a lifetime of devotion. There really isn’t any other option. The idea that we could know Jesus but live unchanged lives isn’t biblical. The picture of biblical faith is the picture of life daily lived in relationship with God. It’s a life of discipleship. Of “followership.” And The LIFE will help your students know exactly what the call to follow looks like.
