The curriculum has been designed to engage the new Christian by listening, studying and group discussion.
It’s important to realize that these new Christians are spiritual babies and like human babies you cannot expect them to act like adults, with this in mind we created the Growing Deep and Strong® series in a manner that allows you to hold them by the hand and take them on a journey of learning as you do children and as they grow into teenagers the level of learning increases and they are taught to take responsibility for their actions.
Learning about God
The first step is to introduce them to the spiritual realm and the existence of two kingdoms, kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of Light and help them understand they were living in the kingdom of darkness.
Transference and new Spiritual birth
The first step is to introduce them to the spiritual realm and the existence of two kingdoms, kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of Light and help them understand they were/are living in the kingdom of darkness.
Learn about God and the new kingdom they live in
Treat them as spiritual babies and take baby steps, show them how to navigate their way around the Bible, how they now live in a new spiritual, reveal the old ruler they lived under, Satan. Introduce them to their new King, God, explain why Jesus came, introduce them to the Helper the Holy Spirit, realign their views on angels, reveal how there past life in the kingdom of darkness has caused them to bring demonic baggage into their walk with God.
Experiencing healing power of God
On a weekend retreat, in a safe and confidential environment the new disciples experience the healing power of God, this is where you will set them free from demonic hindrances that will prevent them from growing into the fullness of all that God has for them. At the conclusion of the weekend, you will water baptise them and baptise them in the Holy Spirit and
the gift of tongues
Dealing with character issues and old lifestyle Syllabus
By now they have a good understanding of the Kingdom of Light, we now view the disciples as teenagers approaching adulthood and Module two is about addressing character issues and exposing them to what the bible says about these character issues.
By exposing them to the word of God on each of these, topics, your role is to introduce the topics and allow the Holy Spirit to bring conviction and correction to their old lifestyle
Experiencing God’s grace and healing power
Again, this brings an awareness of demonic issues from their old lifestyle, at this 2nd Encounter Weekend you deal with ungodly character issues that have arisen as they studied how God meant us to live according to His Word
Evangelism is the fruit of revival
When God’s people are truly revived and renewed spiritually, it results in a new vision for a lost world and a new commitment to reach out to those who do not belong to Christ. Evangelism is the fruit of revival
In this module you will help them discover their God-given gifts and how to best to use them.
You will teach them the principles and strategies of prayer warfare with the aim of fulfilling the great commission by praying for people in their circle of influence and bringing them out of the kingdom of darkness.
New converts and Discipleship
This module is designed to help your disciples develop leadership skills to coach the new believers through the Growing Deep and Strong® discipleship path. The process I have just described is simple to teach, easy to follow, it will multiply itself organically and develop strong Christians and minimise the falling away of new believers.
