Looking for a resource for discipling young Christians? Growing Young Disciples is a series of discipleship studies, written by experienced Australian youth pastor, Tim Hawkins.
Aimed at younger teens, these short studies give a simple, scripture-based overview of what it means to follow Jesus. Each study takes about 30 minutes to complete and includes application questions and prayer. Use them one-on-one or in small groups at youth group, school or camps, and give your young people a strong foundation in their faith.
Step one of the Christian journey is to discover the man Jesus. This book contains five discoveries, each a piece of a jigsaw puzzle. Put them all together and you will see the whole picture of what it really means to be a Christian.
We all ask questions sometimes about our faith. Has God really forgiven me? Does God really love me? This book gets young Christians looking at the Bible to know for sure the promises and assurance of God.
Sometimes following Jesus can be really difficult! This book spells out the realities of the Christian’s walk for new Christians and shows that even when the going gets tough, God loves us and will never desert us.
