three books of the Calvary Chapel Discipleship Series (aka 2:7 Series) are
practical and effective tools. They give structure and definition to the
discipleship-making process. They can be used in small home groups, men’s/women’s
groups, triad groups, or one to one. Remember, there are no magic
formulas. Books don’t make disciples. Courses don’t make disciples.
It is disciples that make disciples." - Pastor Ed Hickey, CC London
This book is the second of three books. Both the
new believer and the mature believer will find its contents filled with
transferable concepts. As one life impacts another, these tools can be
used over and over again.
BOOK 2: DEEPENING YOUR ROOTS IN GOD'S FAMILY
Memorize several classic Bible verses that you will use for a lifetime. Experience an extended time alone with God. Think through your own spiritual history so that you can express it to someone not yet committed to Christ.
"Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." -- Colossians 2:7
When a tree takes root, burrowing deep into the soil, it's not long before the action is mirrored above grown.
New branches shoot out. Green, healthy leaves appear. Even the trunk grows sturdier, more storm-resistant.
And so it is with you. The deeper you root your life in Christ, the stronger you'll become.
Each book in THE 2:7 SERIES contains a dual focus: personal growth and sharing your life in Christ. This second study in the series will help you learn how to make Christ the Lord of your life. Then you'll discover how easy it is to branch out by reviewing your spiritual life and sharing it with others. With its biblical and practical approach to discipleship, this workbook will yield long-term, life-changing results, such as:
“For years I
struggled to find a tool that would help with what I referred to as systematic
discipleship. When I was finally introduced to the 2:7 Series, I found
something that provided the structure and definition I was looking for.
In it are tools for making disciples that will make disciples. I continue
to come back to it time and time again.”
---Pastor Matt Rowan, Christ the King CC British Columbia, Canada
“Jesus told us to
go and make disciples. As a pastor that takes intentionality and
investment seriously, I’ve turned to the 2:7 Series again and again over the
years to fulfill that command. It starts with the basics and lays down a
foundation that is rich in wisdom and practical in its application. I
would highly recommend this series to any person who is serious about making
---Pastor Dale Baldwin, Calvary Chapel Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada
“The first night of
the first group I did of the 2:7, one of the men began to weep after we prayed
to open up the session. He said he was so happy, because he had been a Christian
for 20 years and had always wanted someone to sit down and take the time to
show him how to live the Christian life. This is a foundational resource
for any Christian that wants to be a disciple of Christ, and disciple
others. We never outgrow the basics.”
