What is the significance of the name
THE 2:7 SERIES® ?
The name is based on the Scripture reference Colossians 2:7—the statement of the Apostle Paul to a New Testament church: “Rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” What the apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, expresses in this passage clearly defines the specific goals of this training:
The three books are designed to be completed in sequence.
Book 2 builds on the work done in book 1, and book 3 builds on what your group has accomplished in the first two books. You will enjoy each book’s biblical and practical approach to discipleship. As many others have, those of you who participate in a 2:7 group can expect to experience positive life changes as you study and apply this time-proven material. Here is the main content of the three courses.
The 2:7 Series is discipleship training.
We Navigators tend to think of training groups as being more demanding than growth groups. It is difficult to perfectly differentiate between the two. An example of a growth group might be people who prepare a Bible study, come together to talk about what they have studied, and pray together.
People in training groups learn and practice skills while they experience spiritual growth. In The 2:7 Series® people learn and practice skills such as quiet time options, ways to meditate on Scripture, how to sharpen and tell their salvation story, and other skill-based topics.
NavPress offers a number of tools for both growth groups and discipleship training groups. THE 2:7 SERIES® provides well-rounded discipleship training for both men and women—in separate groups or together.
