Growing in Jesus: 6 Small Group Sessions on Discipleship, the third title in the Experiencing Christ Together student edition series, helps your students walk as Jesus walked. Six sessions cover crucial issues to the spiritual growth of every Christian teenager:
*What is discipleship and why would I want to live like Jesus?
*How do I love God when my life feels empty?
*How do I slow down enough to recognize Jesus working in my life?
*Am I really supposed to pray without ceasing? What does that even mean?
*Why is obeying God so important?
*If God were to prioritize the things I do, what would that to-do list look like?

Students want to be disciples, but they need direction on exactly how to start living the lives that Jesus has in mind for them. Growing in Jesus will give students the tools and attitudes they need to make sense of what God is calling them to do right now, right where they are.

The Experiencing Christ Together series is the newest discipleship course from Life Together. These six new study guides have six sessions each and enable small groups to explore the power and life application of Jesus’ teaching on the five biblical purposes of a Christian life by closely examining Christ’s model in the Gospels. The first book lays the foundation of who Christ is and what he has done for us. The other five books explore how Jesus trained his followers to live out the five basic biblical purposes for life. Each of the six sessions is comprehensive and includes Scirpture, worksheets, memory verses, journaling prompts, and daily readings that let you fashion the curriculum to fit your group.

Students understand that they were created for a reason—they know God had something in mind when he knit them together. The challenge is helping your students unlock that knowledge and start living the life they were designed for.

Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition (modeled after Experiencing Christ Together adult curriculum) brings your students face to face with Jesus, the one who holds the key to living for God. By studying Jesus’ words and life, these small group studies will take your students to the heart of what it means to live purposefully for God.

Included in the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition curriculum are these studies:
* Beginning in Jesus
* Connecting in Jesus
* Growing in Jesus
* Serving Like Jesus
* Sharing Jesus
* Surrendering to Jesus

Taken together, the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition curriculum represent thirty-six individual sessions (almost a year’s worth of small-group studies) all aimed at helping your students learn to follow God’s purpose for their lives. Each piece is available separately.
