At various times throughout the year the Discipleship Pathway is offered to equip new and mature Christians into become a disciple-maker.  We believe in being disciples and making disciples. We encourage our adults to participate in the Discipleship Pathway, which intentionally brings greater connection, grows your faith, and equips you to disciple others.  Discipleship Pathway sessions happen throughout the year following Wednesday Night Dinners. Check the event calendar for dates to begin your journey.

Once you choose a path, remain on it and make your way through each of the CONNECT, GROW, and ACTIVATE studies each session during Wednesday Night Studies until you complete all 5 paths. The Paths may be completed in any order. For more information on how to begin your pathway, contact Priscilla Novak discipleship@jwchurch.org or 281-444-2112.

Make Disciples Path

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you, and surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.  – Matthew 28:19-20

We were birthed into being disciple-makers at the time of our faith in Jesus Christ. It is also at the core of our mission as a body of Christ at John Wesley Church to connect people to Jesus. The Make Disciples Path is a series of studies designed to help you as a believer develop and grow as you seek after the heart of Christ to become and live out the life of a disciple.

Bible Foundations Path

Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  – Matthew 7:24

People of faith are called to be lifelong learners of God's holy ways, and as believers, we seek to help people learn God's ways as laid out in the Bible. As you apply the teachings of His word to your daily life, you connect your faith story to the gospel story! The Bible Foundations Path is designed to help you grow in your faith and your understanding of the word of God as you live it out.

Spiritual Formations Path

Put on your new nature and be renewed as you learn to know your creator and become like Him.  – Colossians 3:10

When we are connected to the true vine (Jesus), we are given life and strength to grow. As you grow deeper in your relationship with God, you find that you look more like the one whom you are following. This transformation is evident in our words and deeds. The Spiritual Formations Path is designed to help you deepen your walk with God, your prayer life, and your connection to the Holy Spirit through worship as you take the journey with God through your life's story and connect to His.

The Jesus Life Path

"I have set an example that you should do as I have done for you," Jesus says. 
-John 15:13

What does a Christian life look like? It looks like Jesus. Jesus led by serving. He loved by serving, and He healed the sick. Jesus gave all his life here on earth to others. The Jesus Life Path is designed to help you develop in service to God, others, and the church. You will learn what a connected, activated faith looks like and explore the foundations of Christianity as you learn what it looks like to have a missional life as Christ did.

The Wesleyan Path

Scripture, tradition, reason and experience are four of the key attributes connected to Wesleyan theology. Where did these concepts arise from? How do they fit together? What impact could they have on my personal faith development? The Wesleyan Theology Path helps you to understand the history and heritage of the Methodist movement; how practical theology orders the life of faith; and the unique theological emphasis that the Wesley’s used to spark a robust and inclusive evangelical revival in England and America.
