“This is probably the most important thing I have ever written.”
Tony Payne
Also available

How do you get your congregation to catch the vision of The Trellis and the Vine - of being disciple-making disciples of of Jesus Christ in every area of their lives?

The Course of your Life provides a framework to help apply the Word of God to people's lives so that their minds are changed and hearts transformed with a fresh love, joy and enthusiasm for serving Christ, not only as a disciple, but as a maker and grower of other disciples. It focuses on the central and profound issues of who God is, what He has done in Christ, what His extraordinary plans are for the world and how that relates to each of our daily lives.

The course consists of 9 seminars, 2 away days and one-to-one Bible reading. This course is designed to fire people up to give themselves to God's plans and to change the course of their lives - personally and specifically.

Author Tony Payne, who has written many of Matthias Media's most important and popular resources, says of The Course of your Life, "This is probably the most important thing I have ever written."

To run The Course of your Life, you will need:
- a workbook for each person
- this leader's guide (which also contains the material in the workbook)
- a leader's DVD (if you want to use the video clips instead of leading the seminars from the script)

Other information

I’m not a teary kind of bloke. Last night though, I was almost at the point of crying as we went around the room and people shared what they’d got out of doing The Course of your Life. In the week following the weekend away one lady has told virtually everyone she’s met about Jesus and started praying all the time; another lady has cut back her excessive working hours and is praying far more frequently; three men shared how they’ve started speaking about Christian things in conversations at work where in the past they would have kept quiet; one of them gets in the car a few minutes earlier each day so he can pray for opportunities to speak about Jesus at work; another guy can’t stop reading Colossians because it’s just so exciting.

What was most significant was the changes in people’s understanding that was driving these practical steps. Their world view has changed. They now have a different centre of gravity - Jesus. One man said he’s always wanted God to show him a specific plan for his life and until then he could get on and do what he wanted. He now realises that God has a general plan that we all need to be involved in. It isn’t just about becoming a Christian but also Christians ebing changed towards maturity. He finally knows what it means to have Jesus at the centre of his life. That not only comforts him but also directs him through real hardships in life.
