What is ‘Walk with Jesus’?
‘Walk with Jesus’ is your personal journey to become a mature Christian by giving up your old ways and becoming more and more like Jesus. Jesus calls you to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37-39); and to make all nations to His disciples, baptizing them and teaching them to observe all He commanded (Matthew 28:19-20).
Called from Darkness to Light
In ‘Walk with Jesus’ you will focus on how Jesus calls you to be his follower. You are called from darkness to light, you are called to abide in his presence, to do his will, and so on. Practical assignments will help you to turn theory into practice.
Together with a buddy
This course is meant to be done with a buddy. This means that you need to find someone who wants to do this course together with you. The buddy also gets access to the online course and completes the lessons as well. In this case, he or she will also receive a certificate. Important: your buddy can also decide to do the lessons offline (i.e. by printing out the lessons, or discussing the lessons orally with you). In this case the buddy will NOT receive a certificate. Please talk over with your buddy in what way he or she will complete the lessons and tell your mentor about the choice that has been made.
Walk with Jesus course consists of 8 chapters, each containing 3 or 4 lessons. Try to complete one chapter a week; in this way, the course will last 8 weeks.
Your buddy should be a fellow Christian, for instance in your church. Given the nature of the course, we prefer you to select a same-sex buddy (male/male, female/female), but there may be (few) exceptions to this general rule.
This enrollment “course” is to determine whether you can be admitted to the Walk with Jesus discipleship course.
