A three-part study designed to create environments where people experience growth and support as they engage in the discipleship Journey.Learn spiritual practices that will help you fall more in love with God as you grow in your relationship with God and others.

Journey 101 Loving God is one component of Journey 101: Knowing, Loving, Serving God.

Journey 101: Knowing, Loving, Serving God is a three-part basic faith course that helps to answer essential questions as it guides participants on the journey of growing as a Christian. The goal? Becoming a deeply committed follower of Jesus Christ. The three studies are grounded in 15 core traits of a deeply committed Christian--traits that paint a picture of what it looks like to follow Jesus Christ with increasing passion and dedication.

For the church and leadership, the three studies are part of a complete offering. However, the program is flexible enough that group members can take the three studies in any order.

Each Participant Guide includes interactive guides for six sessions with space for responding to questions and activities and recording personal reflections.
