Discipleship within the context of the United Methodist heritage and tradition.

A Disciple's Path is an engaging approach to discipleship from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective that is perfect for a new member class or other small group. The six-week program guides individuals to take the next step in discipleship and become dynamic followers of Jesus Christ and engaged, vital members of the local church.

The study combines a Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God's love and grace with the time-tested practices of spiritual discipline expressed in the membership vows to uphold the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Participants will develop spiritual practices, discover their unique gifts, and become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in their own lives, the lives of others, and the world.

The six-session DVD features the authors, James Harnish and Justin LaRosa, joined by other guests who introduce the weekly topics with dynamic and relevant conversation, setting the tone for group discussion. Each video segment is approximately 10-12 minutes in length and combines with the workbook contents to make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
