Growing Disciples Bible Studies



The 2:7 Series is a discipleship training curriculum done in small discussion groups.  Each of its three workbooks is an 11-week course led by a qualified leader/facilitator.  The three training courses are: 


1. Growing Strong in God’s Family

2. Deepening Your Roots in God’s Family

3. Bearing Fruit in God’s Family

What is the significance of the name The 2:7 Series?  The name is based on the Scripture reference Colossians 2:7—the statement of the Apostle Paul to a New Testament church:  “Rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”


The three books are designed to be completed in sequence.  Book 2 builds on the work done in book 1, and book 3 builds on what your group has accomplished in the first two books.  You will enjoy each book’s biblical and practical approach to discipleship.  As many others have, those of you who participate in a 2:7 group can expect to experience positive life changes as you study and apply this time-proven material.  Here is the main content of the three courses.


*Course 1 is required for all new members and new converts*

Deepening Your Roots Course two


Book 2:  Deepening Your Roots in God’s Family
