HOW IT WORKS

Hey there! You've found one of our "Start Pages" at pursueGOD.org. In this section we'll explain how to use this page with a group or mentor. If you're already connected with a mentor, keep reading to learn how it works. If you need us to connect you with someone to help you pursue God, click here.

Before you start...

At pursueGOD.org, our mission is to empower conversations to help people pursue God. We believe that real life change happens when people have honest, informed conversations. But keep this in mind: no one can pursue God for you. If you've been invited into a mentoring relationship, your mentor is ready to invest in you. But don't make your mentor work harder than you. Be "all in" with your pursuit of God, no matter where you stand right now.

The FLEX Method

So here's how to pursue God with our free online resources. We call it the "FLEX" method, and it takes just three simple steps:

  1. FIND A TOPIC. Browse our resources and pick a topic that you want to learn about (scroll down on this Start Page for recommended topics). All of our content starts with a short video and includes a summary article.
  2. LEARN ABOUT IT. This is where you take ownership. On your own, watch the video and check out the related topics as needed. Some people like to journal on the topic, going through the discussion questions ahead of time and taking notes. How you prep is up to you, but remember: no one can pursue God for you. You'll get out of this what you put into it.
  3. EXPLORE IT TOGETHER. This is where your group or mentor fits in. Get together in person or over the phone, and simply have a conversation. That's where real life-change happens: when people have honest, informed conversations.

And that's it. One topic at a time, discover the truth of the Bible. Talk about life, faith, family, and more. Our tools empower conversations so you can pursue God at your own pace. And when you're ready to go "full circle" in your pursuit of God, we recommend that you complete "The Pathway".

The Pathway

At PG, we want to see people around the world living out a full-circle pursuit of God: trusting Jesus, honoring God, and helping others pursue God. To help you to do this, we've put together a 10-week track called "The Pathway". It's an expanded version of our Foundations series, and it will guide you through the most basic steps you need to take to become a whole-hearted follower of Jesus. Go through The Pathway with your mentor, and soon you'll be ready to help someone else pursue God.
