“Is there more to the Christian life than this?”
This was the question I was asking a couple of years after I started following Jesus.
I was reading my bible. I was praying. I was going to church three times a week. But my life felt dry and dusty. I was checking the boxes that Christians are supposed to do.
But I felt a disconnect between the life I was living and the life I read about in the Bible. I felt deep in my heart that there was more to life with Jesus than I was currently experiencing.
The Bible describes a life with more joy, more satisfaction, more purpose, and so much more “life” than my ordinary Christian life. So I went on a journey with God and learned how to enjoy Jesus more. I am still on this journey growing in Jesus, and I am inviting others to journey with me in enjoying Jesus more. That is why I created the Enjoying Jesus course. Before I tell you about the course itself, let’s first look at three obstacles people have to enjoying Jesus more themselves and helping others enjoy Jesus.
The Obstacles to Enjoying Jesus More
I want to grow in my faith, but I am not sure what to do next.
I have listened to sermons, read books, gone to conferences, and listened to podcasts. Those are all great. But what next?
Many people like you have taken the Enjoying Jesus course because they were looking for something that goes deeper.
This course is series of workshops. It is very different that a sermon style teaching. The course is interactive and personal. It will feel like “hands on” learning, and you will enjoy the variety learning styles that we use. All this works together to help you grow in your faith.
I have a heart to tell others about Jesus, but I don’t want it to be awkward. I don’t want to come across as preachy or judgmental. And I certainly don’t know all the answers. So how do I even start?
The people who have taken Enjoying Jesus have starting having Jesus conversations with people right away. They were pleasantly surprised at were natural and not awkward at all. They also found that their friends and coworkers had a lot more interest in Jesus than they thought they would. Many from the course have seen learned the skills and helped their friends and coworkers actually turn and trust in Jesus! This is one of the greatest joy in life. This course will teach you these skills.
I know that making disciples is important, but I am not sure if I am ready to make disciples. I’ve still got some problems. I am not far enough along in my faith to disciple others yet. I think I will leave disciple-making to others.
Or maybe you heart is more like this…
I would like to make disciples, but how do I actually do that? Where do I start? What do I do practically?
The people who have taken Enjoying Jesus have begun discipling others before the course is even over. They learn some simple tools and begin using them right away. The course is designed to help you pass on what you have learned to others. You don’t have it all figured out. You don’t even have to call it “discipleship.” If fact, it will work better if you don’t! But if you have the heart to invest in others, this course will give the the practical next steps on how to actually do it.
Have you experienced any of these obstacles in your life?
I have felt all three of them myself. And I have met hundreds of people with these same obstacles. You are not alone when you feel these.
The Enjoying Jesus course is specifically designed to help you overcome these obstacles.
Let me be clear though, this course is the not the solution to these problems.
Jesus is the solution.
And this course will bring you into an encounter with Him so that He can overcome the obstacles. This course will give you the tools to not only overcome these once, but to do so day by day by day. The course teaches you how to keep discovering and following Jesus more and more for the rest of your days.
I hope you will take the course and overcome your obstacles to enjoying Jesus.
Imagine this kind of life
You wake up in the morning, and you immediately feel thankfulness to Jesus. You haven’t even gotten out of bed yet, but your day is already off to a great start.
You read your Bible with wide-eyed wonder (at whatever time of day works best for you). As you read, you discover more about who Jesus and what life with Him looks like. Your Bible reading does not feel like a box to check off to be a good Christian. You are actually engaging with Jesus and receiving life and satisfaction from Him.
Your prayer life is natural and balanced, and goes far beyond just telling God all the things you need. You feel your life re-aligning with God when you pray.
You have friends and coworkers who don’t follow Jesus yet. You have the skills to talk naturally about Jesus and tell his good news. It is not awkward at all. Nonbelievers like talking with you about Jesus. People feel that you for them and you are helpful when talking about spiritual things.
A few years from now, you look back and see a stream of people that have trusted in Jesus or grown in their faith because of your impact in their life.
Somehow your simple life with Jesus is now impacting more lives than you could ever ask or imagine.
Here is the amazing part….
None of these practices felt like duty or drudgery or checking boxes.
You have learned to live freely and lightly with Jesus.
This is my heart for the people that take the Enjoying Jesus course. This is the kind of life that people are actually living after taking the course. I will teach you the simple tools and skills to enjoy Jesus more yourself and help others enjoy Him too.
If this sounds like the kind of life you want, then I hope you will register for the Enjoying Jesus course.
Here is how it works.
The course is a 6-week journey with 6 meetings and 7 simple projects. The course is a series of workshops that are done with other people. I introduce the workshops with a video like this one from the first meeting.
It is not on online course where you just watch videos in your bedroom at 1am. Jesus had no solo disciples. He did discipleship as a group. So we do the Enjoying Jesus course in groups.
You do each project before your meeting each week. You will read the Project Prompt which will have some truth about Jesus, some good questions, and an action prompt. After you read the prompt, you will write your project and post it on a blog. You can write as short or as long as you like. There is no pressure here. This is not school. There are no right answers. There is no test. This is about you and journey with Jesus.
After you write and post your project, you will go a meeting with your group. The meetings are discovery based and interactive. In a typical meeting, you will watch a video of me introducing the workshop. Then you will do the workshop with your group. Then you watch another video of me concluding the workshop and tying the concepts together.
The Seventh and final project ties the course together and is completed sometime in the month after the last meeting.
Here are the topics we will cover in the course.

This 6-week course will truly change your relationship with Jesus forever. Not only that, it could change the lives of the people around you as you learn to share Jesus naturally and help other believers enjoy Jesus more. This is a worthy investment of your time and resources.
The course costs $47.
And it is worth it. Enjoying Jesus is the ultimate investment because the rewards last for eternity. And if you have read this far, then you are the type of person that does a course like this.
To help married couples enjoy Jesus together, married couples only need to purchase the course once. So it is just $47 for both of you (because the two have become one).
You will have lifetime access to the course. You can use the material as reference resources in the future.
Better yet, you can take others through the course as you become the type of person that helps others enjoy Jesus more. You can go through the course as many times as you like at no additional cost.
