What is Partners?

Partners is designed to get you personally connected on a weekly basis with a mature and growing Christian in order to help you advance in your understanding and application of ten biblical themes that are critically important in the Christian life.

Each chapter in the Partners Workbook becomes the basis for your weekly meetings with your chosen or assigned partner, who has already been through the program. The chapters will direct you to read sections of the Bible that relate to that week’s topic and you will be prompted to answer specific questions about the implications and application of those verses. Then, when meeting with your partner, you will discuss the truths you have studied, seek to sharpen your understanding and grow in your devotion to Jesus Christ.

After the experience of being led through the challenging chapters in the Partners Workbook, the real growing and gratifying experience begins as you allow yourself to be used by God to guide someone else through the same material.

Partners Stories

What people are saying about partners…

I would say that Partners is awesome, I learned and relearned a lot of valuable Biblical principles. I thoroughly enjoyed having the insight from a Godly Man.

I had a great time working with Phil in the Partners program. I have learned so much during that time and have grown tremendously as a Christian as a result. I feel that I have the tools I need to go forward in my journey.

I wanted to let you know what a great experience it was to have Doug as my partner in the Partner’s program. I can’t imagine a more knowledgeable, more patient, more compatible partner! I’d be happy to take someone through the program.

Thank you, The Partners was a great investment of time, and more so, how God put Jimmy as my partner. I am excited to partner with someone myself.

I really enjoyed Partners and could not have had a better example of a leader. Shawna was awesome!!!!!!! I learned so much and grew in many ways, even though I have been a believer for over twenty years. It got me to really think about my faith and I can’t wait to take somebody else through it.

I am so glad I completed Partners. Initially I was reluctant not understanding that it was for all Christians despite how much experience one has. I thought it was for beginners. But my Bible study leader encouraged me to participate and I am so grateful for that now. Toby was an ideal partner for me. She was well-informed and was always able to answer my questions or lead me in a direction where I can find answers for myself. She was patient with me and flexible with the times we met. The program itself was an eye-opener. I feel it gave me more confidence to be able to share Christianity with those around me.

I found excitement and relevancy in every aspect of the program. The chapters, the memory verses, the deeper studies, etc…I am eager to share this program with another. Chapter 9 was especially valuable to me.

Partners was the best thing I have ever done in my entire life- I became a Christian! I was deceived about being a Christian, and the first chapter in Partners revealed to me that I wasn’t. Jane was the perfect Partner for me. I know God hand-picked her to lead me to Him, and I learned so much from her wisdom.
