Create a Plan for Spiritual Growth

Create a Plan for Spiritual Growth

How do we develop a customized plan that will foster lasting life change?
Single Session Bible Study

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to spiritual formation,” says Angie Ward in her article “Tailor-Making Spiritual Formation.” Ward believes that we need to focus on taking the next step in our spiritual journey instead of focusing on how to reach the “ideal” level of Christian maturity. She encourages people to design their own plan for spiritual formation rather than follow the same method as everyone else. While the ultimate goal is spiritual maturity, there are hundreds of baby steps needed to reach that goal. Ward suggests focusing on manageable activities that produce fairly quick results and create a hunger for more spiritual growth. This study focuses on creating your own individual spiritual growth plan that includes creative steps to get you to your goal.
