Higher Ground Discipleship SEries

The Christian life does not stop with belief and baptism. Our Higher Ground discipleship series is built upon mentor-based relationships.
We strongly believe that people disciple people and it usually happens in small numbers. Higher Ground is segmented into short, manageable areas of focus.

Solid

In order to continue following Jesus in the midst of this chaotic world, the Christian life must first have an indestructible foundation. This study tracks the fundamentals of salvation, using Solid by John Myer. It surveys the pertinent Bible verses that illuminate the uniqueness of Christ, what it means to be saved, how to be saved, how to know for sure you are saved, and how to know you will be saved forever. 

Presence

Christians need a dynamic devotional relationship with our highly relational Savior God. This practice-oriented discipleship will help a person develop the habit of spiritual self-feeding. It utilizes the workbook Presence by John Myer and Seth Evans which focuses on spending time in the presence of God through prayer and the Word. 

Survey of the NT

As a people who derive truth from the Scriptures, it goes without saying that we should make it our business to understand the Bible! This survey by John Myer assists not only in reading the New Testament, but also in learning the theological point of each book. The emphasis here is upon enrichment and education. 

Life Shapes

The overall goal of discipleship is to have your life shaped by Jesus Christ and to then help others be conformed to His image. Utilizing the book Building a Discipleship Culture by Mike Breen and other supplemental tools, you will learn, implement, practice teaching, and then look to disciples others into a holistic lifestyle growing into the image of Christ.

Presence

Solid

Seasoned Christians will find this book an illuminating refresher course. New believers will find it helpful in laying a foundation concerning the uniqueness of the Savior and what salvation means, how to get it, the assurance of having it, and the guarantee of keeping it forever. 

Shopping Vs Seeking

When guided by ill-informed personal criteria and faced with a bewildering array of choices, the end of a church hunt can seem just as empty as the beginning. But there is hope. Equipped with a few sound guideposts, healthy fellowship is not impossible to find. 

Momentum

Momentum gives good reasons for settling down with other believers, putting a stop to wandering from one congregation to another, and being about the business of serious Christian development. 

Contains No Sugar

Those who are just beginning to navigate leadership roles in the church usually pay attention to critical big box items like vision, style, and methods. Meanwhile, a multitude of smaller issues that go undetected may be undermining their service.
