Following Jesus:

An Active Thriving Experience to Grow Your Relationship with God.

Are you…

• done with merely hearing about Jesus in sermons?
• tired of merely reading about Jesus in devotions?
• ready to encounter Jesus—to know Him for who he really is?

Do You want to experience Jesus’ love, not just admire Him?
Become a follower, not just a fan?
Love others the way Jesus does?

Following Jesus is a Jesus-Centered experience that moves you into active, participatory discovery, to love and engage everyday life and the world as Jesus engages the same in the Bible.

Until now, This approach is called “Discovery-Based,” and honors the insights and discoveries of everyone in the group, not just a few.

Following Jesus is rich and rare combination of experiences, visual storytelling, and deeper-dive questions. It’s an experience for the whole church—uniquely created to meet the deeper longings for relationship that youth and adults say they have.

Created by Rick Lawrence—General Editor of the bestselling Jesus-Centered Bible and author of 40 books and curriculums, including The Jesus-Centered Life, the Jesus-Centered Daily, and The God Who Fights For YouFollowing Jesus is drawn from his own home-based ministry to youth and young adults. It’s an approach to faith formation and discipleship that is highly engaging, fluid, and deep. It’s participant-centered rather than leader-centered. Instead, these active and interactive experiences lead participants right to the heart of Jesus, where they can “taste and see” His goodness directly, rather than secondhand.

Rick has curated 40 of the best of these interactive experiences from a storehouse of almost 300 he’s developed over the last eight years, crafting Following Jesus to be the ultimate resource guiding you to:

  • Encounter the love Jesus has for doubters, skeptics, and believers.
  • Learn how weakness and fear can help you know the heart of Jesus for you.
  • Think about the world the way Jesus does and lean into the events we commonly experience with a new kind of understanding and love.
  • Approach relationships the way that Jesus does—vertically and horizontally.
  • Impact real-life relationships and the surrounding community with a new sense of purpose that’s rooted in a Jesus-centered life.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How does Following Jesus differ from previous experience I’ve had with Bible Studies?

Other curriculums have always relied on a teacher “monologue” to drive the learning experience. Following Jesus is a vigorous, creative set of participatory discovery experiences and conversations—participants interact with the teacher, with each other, and ultimately with Jesus as process what they are discovering.

Each lesson is embedded with hands-on activities and/or visual storytelling. Conversations are weighted and driven by penetrating, thought-provoking questions and follow-up “debriefing”—the leader is guided to interact with what people are saying and what the group has discovered.

Teaching the way Jesus teaches is critical—He often spurs growth by using metaphor, story, and parable. In creating Following Jesus, Rick uses video in the same way—metaphorically, just as Jesus used storytelling. It’s central to the way people are engaging the discovery of Jesus.
