A Preteen Discipleship Series

Discipleship is definitely more than a lesson book. It is the realigning of one’s whole life (thoughts, behaviors, emotions, choices, etc) toward the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Discipleship almost always happens through human relationships, not merely a book on discipleship.

However, it is often helpful to have some concrete material to work through together with a small group. As it is said in 2 Peter 3:18 “…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” Disciples need to grow in knowledge of God and that can happen in a formal setting of learning.

Enter Explore.

Explore has two sections to it:  a leader section and a student section. The Leader’s Guide directs leaders through a formal time of instruction on a topic while the Student Book assists the student along during the time of teaching.

Explore is composed of 8 books:

  1. Uncover the Truth about God
  2. Discover Your Place in God’s Plan
  3. Experience God’s Power in You
  4. Encounter Your Mission for God
  5. Investigate God’s Word for Yourself
  6. Link Your Life to God
  7. Unearth God’s Image in You
  8. Represent the Evidence for God

Each book has 6 “lessons” or concepts in them.

Explore is a great resource to systematically introduce students (particularly preteens) to the life of a disciple and to engage them in such a life.

  1. I could use the Explore material in a Sunday school setting or small group setting for preteens who have recently accepted Jesus, to help them become established in their faith

  2. I have been looking for something for our grade 5 and 6 kids. looks like this has real posibilites.

  3. I would give this to my friends Pastors Judi and Arthur Baxter. They have recently taken over a church in Florida and are very much in need of materials for this age group. The kids want to learn and grow so badly. They just need the resources.

  4. The preteen years are very formative years. We have several kids entering that age group at our church. Not sure how this would be used exactly, but would love to have it as a resource. Thanks!
