The BeADisciple Study App

The Basics

The BeADisciple Study App is an ecumenical Christian platform that provides all resources necessary for participation in meaningful small-group study.

Your purchase includes a digital manual, the complete Common English Bible (CEB), videos, and other course material. Just as important are the ways this digital study can connect group members as they grow in their faith: a weekly Zoom meeting, prayer requests, group discussions, and other faith-building tools. The app offers a remedy to the post-pandemic disconnect many people now feel with their churches, allowing them to rebuild engagement from their homes or even while traveling.

The app contains all the resources you will need for your selected study, including a digital manual, the complete Common English Bible (CEB), videos, and commentaries. It also takes care of logistical tasks creating a group roster.

The app is free! After you download it, you will be able to browse available studies for purchase.

The cost is comparable to what you would spend on typical material for an in-person study with hard-copy curriculum.

That depends on which study you choose. Details about expected time commitments can be found by browsing the studies available on the app.
