This story set follows the story of the disciples as they meet Jesus, follow Him, get to know Him and begin to grow. There are 34 stories that will take you through 34 weeks as you  follow Jesus with His disciples in a chronological order, although we will not have time to tell all the stories about Jesus and His disciples in this series.

We have chosen stories from all four of the gospels in the order that they occurred. Jesus took these disciples on a journey together so they could become like Him and be His sent ones (“apostles”) to the world. If you face each situation they faced and respond like they did, you will be Jesus’ disciples indeed and in deed. Remember for thousands of years God’s people have used “story telling” or the oral tradition of telling the Word of God.

The benefit of telling the story is that people understand the big picture and can pass it on in a clearer way. You will find in this guide that we are asking you or someone in your group to actually tell the story aloud, and then have it retold by someone else in the group in their own words. Statistics tell us that the majority of us actually learn better by re-telling a story. As the story is told and retold, you will be amazed to see the number of people in our groups that will be able to better understand and apply the heart of the story. Story telling draws people deeper into the Word to discover what it actually says and not what we want it to say. We will ask one set of questions to reinforce the facts of the story and another set to discover God’s heart behind the story. Remember, equally important to telling the story, is to ask good questions to hear where people are in their journey with God. We have always told stories in our small groups. The problem has been that the stories were focused more on ourselves than on God’s Word. Retelling the story may feel a bit awkward at first. Our small groups are a place for us to learn and explore with mistakes being part of the process.

It's important to read the scripture passage that will be storied in advance a few times and even practice telling it to someone out loud. The more you practice the easier it becomes to tell the story with flow and confidence. Our measure for success is when our people can pass God’s Word on to others accurately. (Read: 2 Timothy 2)
