The Follow Course
This is our core training course to help you to find and follow Jesus as His disciple, and fulfil God’s call on your life. Courses are running regularly across all our congregations.
What is the follow course?
The Follow Course is our core training course, and we invite everyone – whether you are a serious seeker, a new believer, or a mature believer – to experience it for themselves.
We believe that answering Jesus’ call to “follow” Him as a disciple is the most important decision anyone can make in this life – and the most exciting! When the early disciple responded to this invitation, their lives were completely transformed and they were launched into a God-adventure, which literally changed the world.
The Bible calls us not just to make decisions and attend meetings, but primarily to actively and wholeheartedly follow Jesus as His disciples.
This is what The Follow Course is all about. It is an intentional progressive 3 part training journey to help all believers and serious seekers to purposefully follow Jesus as His disciple, and to equip you to fulfil God’s call on your life.
Is the Follow Course for me?
- Do you really want to know God?
- Do you generally feel distant from God?
- Do you want to experience greater intimacy and confidence in your relationship with God?
- Do you struggle in your faith walk with Jesus, and just don’t know what the problem is?
- Do you long for greater consistency in your spiritual life?
- Do you want to stop stumbling along and start to purposefully pursue and fulfil God’s call on your life?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should consider registering for the next Follow Course, and get moving purposefully forward in your faith walk!
You don’t need to know anything, but do need to want something: more. To want to know God more, and experience a deeper relationship with Him. To live for something greater. To be ready for all God has called you for. If you want that, then join us on this exciting Follow adventure.
You can expect:
- A great relational environment – come as you are because we’re all in this together.
- Each evening starts with a light meal.
- Not just a lecture, but a rich interactive learning experience.
The Follow Course Overview - a brief summary of each of the three parts
The Follow Course is based on Jesus’ great invitation to all those who wanted to be His disciples: “Come, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of people!
It is presented in 3 parts: I COME, I GROW, and I LEAD
FOLLOW ONE: I COME (4 Sessions)
“Come to Me”. This is Jesus’ great invitation to relationship. These sessions will establish you in the vital and life-changing foundations for a relationship with God the Father, and the way home He has made for you in Jesus Christ. Move from lost to found; from sinner to son to heir!
May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to His people …
For He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. – Colossians 1:11-14
FOLLOW TWO: I GROW (6 Sessions)
“I will make you”. In this session you will learn and be trained how to root your faith walk in 5 essential discipleship truths of Faith, Family, Freedom, Filling, and Fruitfulness. These truths are foundational and vital for every disciple of Jesus to continue experiencing holistic growth, maturity and victory as they follow Him
And now, just as you received Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth… – Colossians 2:6-7
FOLLOW THREE: I LEAD (7 Sessions)
Jesus calls you to a life of influence and fruitfulness. These sessions will train and develop you in Christ-like leadership character and skills in order to live out God’s call on your life to the fullest.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations… – Matthew 28:19
We invite you to join us and grow on this great adventure of following Jesus as Lord!
When & where can you do the Follow Course?
All three parts of the course are presented in all our congregations at various times. We will only be advertising the start dates for FOLLOW ONE and FOLLOW TWO courses, as FOLLOW THREE is by invitation only to those who have completed the previous two steps of the journey.
