Change the way your small group reads the Bible and embark on a transformative journey of deepening your understanding and practice of discipleship.

As Christians, we know that the Bible is the blueprint for our faith, and its promises hold the hope and strength we need each day.

But did you know that it also reveals how you and your small group can have an impact on serving alongside God to redeem His world as an all-in disciple? God did not create you to be a spectator in life, He created you to put His love and grace on display, redeeming broken relationships and bringing healing to His creation.

That’s why we want you to experience this exclusive new 4-season streaming digital Bible study from acclaimed author and teacher Ray Vander Laan. RVL takes us on a comprehensive journey of spiritual growth, gaining insights from Scripture, history, and cultural context to deepen your discipleship and live as faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

This groundbreaking series is available exclusively from Focus on the Family. In these first three seasons, you will….

  • Experience scripture the way Jesus’ first disciples did.
  • Discover God’s heart for marginalized people.
  • Understand the purpose of suffering in the life of a disciple.
  • Learn how to answer the question, "Why did Jesus LIVE?"
  • Discover how to bring Jesus' healing and peace to our broken world.

Jesus did not come to raise up admirers but imitators — women and men who embody his redemptive love and transform the world. This is what it means to be a disciple, and this 4-season study will empower you to embrace your calling like never before.

Save 30% when you purchase the full 4-season bundle, and begin your discipleship journey in a group or on your own.

I thought this was THE BEST series on discipleship I have ever experienced. It made my faith come alive. It was not your “usual” discipleship series. I was blown away by the things it taught me. Opened my eyes. I look forward to the future series. The artistry in this video is amazing. RVL is amazing. Truly a gift from God.
