First Steps of Discipleship series

A 10-part contextualised discipleship resource from 9Marks and 20schemes

The First Steps to Discipleship series will help equip those from an un-churched background take the first steps in following Jesus. We call this the ‘pathway to service’ as we believe that every Christian should be equipped to be of service to Christ and His church no matter your background or life experience.

If you are a church leader doing ministry in hard places use these books as a tool to help grow those who are unfamiliar with the teachings of Jesus into new disciples. These books will equip them to grow in character, knowledge and action.

Or if you yourself are new to the Christian faith, still struggling to make sense of what a Christian is, or what the Bible actually says, then this is an easy to understand guide as you take your first steps as a follower of Jesus.

There are many ways to use these books.

  • They could be used by an individual who simply reads through the content and works through the questions on their own.
  • They could be used in a one-to-one setting, where two people read through the material before they meet and then discuss the questions together.
  • They could be used in a group setting where a leader presents the material as a talk, stopping for group discussion throughout.

Your setting will determine how you best use this resource.
