This course is singularly outstanding. As a thoughtful Catholic, you will love it.

Discipleship is expertly taught with clear examples and an engaging style you will find moving and compelling. Your guide, Fr. Anthony Gittins, is not only a world-renowned scholar, he is also a charismatic presenter who for good reason was selected to deliver the 2012 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress keynote address.

What does it really mean to be a disciple of Jesus? In the Bible, Jesus says to His followers, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” Now, you can discover this “truth” and how to spread His Word through your own life.

In Discipleship, you will explore the two vital elements that compose discipleship: mission and evangelization. Mission is God’s work—the heart of the mystery we call God, which has literally been brought to earth, incarnated in Jesus. Jesus came to do the work of the one who “missioned” Him through evangelization: dynamic diffusion of the Gospel of Salvation through everything He does.

One burning question remains: what will happen to this mission, started before time began and continued through the life and work of Jesus, when Jesus returns to His Father after the Resurrection?

The answer is, quite simply, discipleship. No one understands the meaning of discipleship better than Fr. Anthony Gittins, Ph.D., a man who has dedicated his life to mission. He eloquently demonstrates how New Testament discipleship can be applied to your life today. Through these absorbing lectures, you will come to understand how you are called to follow Jesus and continue God’s mission.

Join Fr. Gittins and discover how to follow Jesus on His path today.
