Compass

compass_300As legendary discipler Roger Hershey says, a mature disciple is one who walks by faith, communicates their faith, and multiplies their faith. The Compass is a tool designed to help staff and student disciplers guide other students through the process of becoming mature disciples.

In addition to over 45 lessons, The Compass contains a number of other resources including a series of four talks by Roger Hershey on the right reasons, people, components, and content for discipleship. Feel free to supplement the lessons with corresponding CruPress training videos.

The Compass is organized under three main headings: Walk, Communicate, and Multiply, which corresponds with our understanding that a mature disciple is one who walks, communicates and multiplies their faith. You can find over 40 lessons to prepare you to lead great discipleship appointments with students.
