HOW IT WORKS
The goal of the pursueGOD resources is to help people pursue God and discover the truth of a biblical worldview. The key to this simple discipleship method is picking the right topic, and that’s what this start page is for.
What to expect
Our resources start with a short video that communicates biblical truth on a topic. Included with most topics is a summary article and discussion questions to use with your family, group, or mentor. The idea is simple: let the video empower conversations in your world so you can pursue God together, one topic at a time. If you have questions while you’re browsing – or if you’d like to request a topic for us to cover – just ask us.
Where to start
Feel free to start with any topic at all – everything on our site has been carefully chosen with biblical values in mind. But to get the most out of our resources – and to go “full circle” in your faith – we recommend completing our PG Pathway with a group or mentor (see below). When you’re ready to start using our resources to make disciples, see the “Get Trained” tab below. Need help? Click here to request a mentor.

The PG Pathway is a series of steps that will help you go “full circle” in your pursuit of God over the next 3 to 6 months. Complete the steps below with a group or mentor. (Need help with these 10 steps? Click here to request a mentor.)
- Warm up with a few topics on investigating faith or something else of interest. The first few topics you cover with your mentor are important and can lay the groundwork for a meaningful pursuit of God.
- Get started on one of our Bible reading plans. This will help you develop the important habit of reading the Bible for yourself, and our short daily videos will give you the guidance you need.
- Talk about Foundations Truth #1 to learn how to start a relationship with God. It’s easier than you think, because Jesus did everything needed to make it possible.
- Talk about getting to your faith moment and becoming a Christ-follower. This is where you’ll have the opportunity to make a personal response of faith if haven’t already.
- Cover one or more topics on Christian baptism – and get baptized if you haven’t already. This step doesn’t save you, but it’s an important act of obedience to Jesus.
- Talk about Foundations Truth #2 to learn about how to live as a Christian. It’s all about honoring God and going his direction instead of doing your own thing.
- Complete the Christian Basics series or choose another series of interest. You’ll be able to cover more topics and series later, but this is a good time to study something that will strengthen your foundation.
- Talk about Foundations Truth #3 to learn about making disciples. This is the important final step in “full circle” Christianity, and our resources will equip you to do it.
- Get trained on pursueGOD mentoring at our Mentor page. That’s where you’ll find our training playlists along with additional topics to help you become a disciple-maker.
- Start helping someone pursue God, and click here to register as a mentor. Registering makes you a part of our global team of Christ-followers who are helping the world pursue God.
And that’s it! Go through the pathway and then continue to pursue God with additional topics and series… and help others do the same.
