Partners 1-on-1 Discipleship
What is Partners?
Partners is designed to get you personally connected on a weekly basis with a mature and growing Christian in order to help you advance in your understanding and application of ten biblical themes that are critically important in the Christian life.
Each chapter in the Partners Workbook becomes the basis for your weekly meetings with your chosen or assigned partner, who has already been through the program. The chapters will direct you to read sections of the Bible that relate to that week’s topic and you will be prompted to answer specific questions about the implications and application of those verses. Then, when meeting with your partner, you will discuss the truths you have studied, seek to sharpen your understanding and grow in your devotion to Jesus Christ.
After the experience of being led through the challenging chapters in the Partners Workbook, the real growing and gratifying experience begins as you allow yourself to be used by God to guide someone else through the same material.
The dynamic of personally discussing and applying these biblical truths in a one-on-one setting maximizes the opportunity for spiritual growth and accountability. The material is highly adaptable to your current knowledge and experience in the Christian life. Whether you are a new Christian or have been walking with Christ for many years, you will discover that the Partner’s experience will help you advance to the next level of maturity in your relationship with God.
The context and setting of Partners is also used by God to forge new lasting Christian friendships. Focused times of biblical discussion, prayer and accountability prove to be mutually encouraging, supportive and edifying.
And as you are faithful to continue handing down this biblical content through the Partners Program, you will serve as an important link in the chain of Christian discipleship that was described by the Apostle Paul when he wrote:
“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” – 2 Timothy 2:2

Launching Partners at Faith Bible Church:
Faith Bible Church is beginning partners for the first time in the summer of 2017. To help get this program launched we are going to complete partners as described above and together on Sunday mornings during our Sunday morning equipping hour. During this hour, we will discuss the partners book and the elders will answer any questions you or your partner may have about the material. Whether it’s the first week or the last week of our 15-week study, you are welcome to join us on Sunday.
