Preamble

Power to Change seeks to choose resources that reflect our values. The following resources have been chosen by some of our staff as helpful resources for encouraging students in following Jesus. Please note that P2C does not endorse all material written or communicated on the external websites where some of these resources are found. Read more about how we choose resources here.

Introduction to Discipleship

  • Quick Overview of Discipleship
    • Trevor’s Pick: Read this short post to help describe what we mean when we talk about making disciples.
  • About P2C
    • Read over what we are striving for as a P2C community. What’s something that excites you and your disciple about this? What’s a step towards Jesus that you and your disciple want to take towards Jesus this semester? Do you have any questions about our P2C community?

What Do I Do in Discipleship?

  • Together (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RESOURCE)
    • In this four lesson guide developped by Power to Change – Students , we look at what Jesus’ pattern for discipleship was and why it’s still so effective today. We look at what good discipleship looks like, and how to focus on it in this season of life. Together, we can make disciples. P2C staff and students can get free hard copies here!
  • Roadmap for Discipleship
    • Jessica’s Pick: I like the roadmap for discipleship because it allows you to have an open conversation about the direction you both would like your discipleship to take.  It allows those whom you’re discipling to point out areas they would like to grow in!
  • The Ultimate Road Trip
    • A resource on discipleship written and published by P2C’s American counterpart.

How Do I Know What my Disciple Needs?

  • Together (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RESOURCE)
    • In this four lesson guide developed by Power to Change – Students , we look at what Jesus’ pattern for discipleship was and why it’s still so effective today. We look at what good discipleship looks like, and how to focus on it in this season of life. Together, we can make disciples. P2C staff and students can get free hard copies here!
  • The Discipleship Roadmap
    • Jessica’s pick: This resource has some helpful ways of breaking down different growth stages as a Christian. It’s a Catholic resource, so for those who aren’t Catholic be aware that there are a few references that aren’t applicable.
  • X-Ray Questions
    • Allison’s pick: These questions are so probing and revealing. I first read them in the book “How People Change,” and God has used them to help me change and grow! Having your disciple go through them and share what they noticed might help you uncover some of their deeper spiritual idols and needs.

Sharing Your Story

  • Telling Your Gospel Story
    • Allison’s pick: I love using this worksheet from Jeff Vanderstelt to think through and share my story. Its good questions and themes help me share more deeply, and to centre Jesus and his work rather than myself. I love starting a discipleship relationship by sharing our stories with one another, and this resource shows a great way of doing that!
  • Telling Your Story with Jesus as the Hero
    • This article uses the same ideas as the above worksheet, but elaborates a bit more on the why and how of sharing our stories well.

Discipleship Topics & Resources

Check out the other sections of our Staff Picks resources for discipleship!

  • The Hope of the Gospel
    • This topic addresses questions like: what is the gospel? How do I apply it to my life? How do I have confidence in it and deal with my doubts?
  • Life in the Spirit
    • From who the Holy Spirit is and what He does in our lives to how we can partner with Him in his work.
