Immersive Experiences

Collaborative Discipleship’s Immersive Experiences

Immersive experiences are the things we do to put our faith into action—spiritual disciplines, faith building events, ministry to others and much more. These are the hidden jewels of spiritual growth and kingdom impact. Only by being immersed in experiences where disciples can practice what they’ve been taught will they truly grow and mature.

Immersive experiences are organized in the same way as the lessons. The group should brainstorm immersive experiences together and keep an eye out for any significant opportunities they come across. A few potential experiences are listed below.
