Jesus’ Mission: 4 Chair Discipling
Jesus our model: Walk Like Jesus
Jesus’ Methods: Live Like Jesus
A comprehensive look at how Jesus made disciples. He gave us a mission. He was the model. And He showed us the methods.
Equip your leaders and your people by walking through the Like Jesus modules designed to be used church-wide, in small groups, or by individuals. Each module can be completed in 8-10 weeks and has specific goals for your ministry.
The Leader Manual is designed to give your team an overview before you teach the other 3 modules to your congregation. We also want to give you an opportunity to come into alignment as a leadership team on what disciple-making looks like in your unique church or ministry.
THE MISSION OF JESUS
The first congregational module will look at the four challenges Jesus used with His disciples as He masterfully developed them into reproducing disciple-makers. This module will use the “4 Chair Discipling” book as both a study text and resource guide.
THE MODEL OF JESUS
The second congregational module will look at what it means to “walk as Jesus walked” (I John 2:6). This module will use the HSPOWER acronym as explained in the “Walk Like Jesus” study and discussion guides. These are the “Six Foundational Priorities” of Jesus.
THE METHOD OF JESUS
What are the practical methods we must use to make disciples? How do we live on mission like Jesus did? The Live Like Jesus interactive workbook looks through John 17 and Jesus’ seven “I statements” on how He loved those around him and made disciples.

Frequently asked questions
1. How long do all the modules take to complete?
Each module is designed between 8-10 sessions or weeks. However, you can do them faster or slower. We recommend doing 1 module per semester. It’s flexible, do one module or all of them. 1 year, over 3 years. Find your pace.
2. Is the app free? What is paid Digital Access?
The Like Jesus App is free to download and use. There are some basic free features in the app. With the Digital Access (paid by church or ministry), all the books, videos, messaging, stats, etc. are unlocked in the app. You can then manage the app and get all the digital resources.
3. What if I have further questions or need help?
We are here to help. Once you signup, one of our reps will contact you. There is a Facebook Group where leaders are invited to ask questions and interact. We have over 400 certified trainers/coaches that can help you implement, contact us for more details. We have a team to help guide you.
4. How do we order Leader Kits or books?
Once you create an account and have Digital Access, all the resources are discounted 50% and can be purchased in the Digital Access management portal. This includes Leader Boxes (for each leader, with all 3 books and Leader Manual) as well as individual books for your people. They can read the books in the app or you can buy the printed copies at half off.
5. What if we don't want the Digital Access?
This resource was built centered around the Digital Access (e-books, videos, messaging, assessment, and dashboards.) It can still be used with only the print materials. Send us an e-mail at [email protected] or call 309-319-6408 and we can assist you.
6. Does this work outside the US?
Yes, however, it’s only in English at the moment. Any country (with English speakers) can utilize this resource and the Digital Access platform. Different prices will be offered in different countries/currencies. The Like Jesus philosophy is being used in over 50 countries.
7. Does this work in our current church app?
Yes! Since this app was built in a new hybrid platform, the “web app” works exactly the same as the native app from any web browser. You can use your custom link (provided in the Digital Access) to add a new web based link or section inside your current church app in its entirety.
8. What's the best way to use this in our ministry?
We recommend that you preach it, discuss it in small groups, and have people study on their own in tandem. We provide those three layers for you. Sermon guides, discussion guides and the books themselves for personal study. This resource was designed to be integrated into any church or ministry.
