"The Purple Book"  Experiencing Biblical Foundations Rice Broocks & Steve Murrell

"The Purple Book" 
Experiencing Biblical Foundations
Rice Broocks & Steve Murrell

HOW DOES IT WORK? - Simply form a "group" consisting of a small group of friends, family, coach-trainee, etc. Each participant will complete one chapter (4-5 lessons) of book study on their own (including all questions and answers) and then gather with their "group" for general discussion on lesson highlights/application and prayer.

Groups work to see each group member gain confidence to lead portions of the discussion. As understanding and confidence to lead grows, each participant is encouraged to recognize future opportunities to take friends, coworkers and family through the same material for the purposes of building followers who will in turn build followers.

While the material is geared at young believers, we believe that studying foundational gospel truths with a partner or group will create moments of discussion, coaching, and growth that will inspire and prepare all involved for future discipleship opportunities.

HOW DO I START? - Elevate Church family members who want to participate in this small group discipleship process can get a book from the Coffee Counter or The LOFT at no charge. Digital copies are available to purchase HERE.

Please be sure to click on the link below to register your group. If you would like to go through The Purple Project but do not have a group, let us know as you register and we'll connect you with someone.
