Created by Freedom in Christ in partnership with YFC, The Awaken Movement and UCB TV, disciple is a 10-session multi-media interactive small group course that communicates the life-changing message of Freedom In Christ to the millennial generation in their own language.
Across the Western world, young adults have been turning their back on the Church. Most now have no real grounding in Christianity and in just one generation the number of young adults in church has halved. Most church leaders say that reaching this generation is their top priority but that they do not feel equipped to do it.
Whilst these so-called “millennials” (those born from the 1980s onwards) may have turned their back on what they perceive as the hypocrisy of organised religion, they hunger for authenticity and spirituality. They want direction and meaning. When they see Jesus for who He is, they find Him to be the answer they’ve been looking for.
But millennials have a different worldview to previous generations and receive information very differently. That’s why Youth for Christ has produced 10 thought-provoking discussion starter films presented by YFC Church Resources Manager, Dan Lodge which serve as the introductions to the disciple sessions.
Steve Goss, Executive Director of Freedom In Christ Ministries UK says, “disciple has the same message as the best-selling Freedom In Christ course but puts it in a totally new way. It was natural for us to turn to YFC on this project because they not only understand the culture and mindset of younger generations, but intuitively know how to communicate in a relevant and amazingly effective way.”
