An overview of learning


A follower of Jesus is a disciple and to be a disciple is to be a life-long-learner.  Jesus is our teacher and he said “take my yoke upon you and learn from me.”  The twelve disciples were a learning community, they were with Jesus, following him, learning from him, together. But they weren’t simply learning information about him, but growing closer to him, becoming more like him and doing the things he did. We want LIFE Groups to be one of the places where we learn to be more like Jesus, putting into practice the words of Jesus and GROW in maturity as Jesus’ disciples.
