Learn the basics of Christian discipleship.

What is true Christian discipleship? Living in Christ brings us joy and fulfillment, but what are we called to do? Get in the Game, a book and 4-week study, teaches the basics of Christian discipleship and explores how we are called to serve others through Christian service when we follow the example of Jesus. Part of The Basics Series, the book helps individuals and group members discover the joyful service that results when faith is put into action. A Leader Guide, which includes everything a group leader needs to plan and facilitate the 4-session study, is also available.

“Wow! This book is a life changer. It will inspire you to get off the sideline, get in the game, and put your faith into action.” –Larry Fedora, Head Football Coach, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Combines solid theology, practical applications, and relevant reflections to help new and seasoned Christians grow in their faith through service. —Matt Miofsky, Lead Pastor, The Gathering United Methodist Church, St. Louis, Missouri
