As we explained in the course design, the Come Follow Me discipleship course combines three methods for each lesson:
So the Study Book is not the complete course! It is just Stage 1 for each week. Stage 2 (the discussion time) is very important for bringing life-change. It is the central part of the course, not an optional extra. It happens with the help of a Christian advisor, either one-to-one or with a group of learners.
Under God’s hand, you as advisor can have a great influence on the learners: as their mentor, encourager, role model, intercessor and friend. To help you in this vitally important role, we have produced an Advisor's Guide.
Part A: General Guidelines gives guidelines for using the course, and cultural clues, which we recommend reading before each lesson, particularly for those less familiar with Muslim cultures.
Part B: Lesson Guidelines gives discussion questions and activities for each lesson. Each week, print this guideline (two sides of A4) read it to prepare and tuck it in with the Study Book as you lead each lesson. Don’t forget the guidelines for the introductory meeting. This will help you start the course well.
There are also opportunities coming up for Advisor Training, which we recommend to anyone hoping to run the course.
