Opening Doors To Discipleship is a series of four courses in the Presbyterian/Reformed tradition to help teachers and leaders equip themselves to be faithful teachers and leaders. Once you register with the web site, you will have access to all four courses.

Here are things that are helpful to know as you begin.

Keeping a journal
Throughout the courses you are asked to keep a journal for reflections or responses to the exercises. The journal should, ideally, be an 8.5” x 11”, 3-ring binder. If you wish to print some of the course pages for future reference, they can be kept in your journal.

Congregational support

  • Learning group: If at all possible, do these courses with others. Set up a local Learning Group. This team should consist of your minister/pastor, other teachers, interested congregational members, parents or friends.
  • A mentor: If possible, recruit a mentor for yourself. The mentor may be a trusted friend, congregational member or elder who is not taking the course. The mentor is someone who “walks the journey of discipleship” with you. He/she is someone with whom you, as learner, can bounce around ideas and thoughts. Your mentor may also pray regularly with and for you.
  • The role of clergy: It is strongly suggested that the clergy, as teaching elders in the reformed tradition, be part of the Learning Group.
