Created by Pastor Rick Warren, the CLASS discipleship program is a proven pathway to grow your people spiritually.
CLASS leads to spiritual transformation — empower your people to become both hearers and doers of the Word.
CLASS is trench-tested — Taught for more than 35 years at Saddleback Church and thousands of churches—of every size and shape—all around the world.
CLASS is fully customizable — We provide easy-to-use files that you can customize to better fit the needs of your church.
Here's what you get when you invest in the CLASS discipleship program:
Class 101: Discovering Our Church Family
Class 201: Discovering My Spiritual Maturity
Class 301: Discovering My Ministry
Class 401: Discovering My Life Mission
Each class has a TEACHER’S GUIDE and a PARTICIPANT’S GUIDE.
The Teacher's Guide contains teaching tips and transcripts from Rick Warren. The Participant’s Guide contains key points, Scriptures, and notes. It also has fill-ins so your members can follow along and take an active part in their learning process.
To best serve your needs, these files come in the following digital formats:
Microsoft Word — For most churches, this will be the file you edit to fit your context.
Adobe PDF — This printable format will give you an idea of what we use at Saddleback.
Adobe InDesign — These files are our original design files. If you are looking to have your adaptation of CLASS professionally designed, the Adobe InDesign files will enable the designer to edit rather than starting from scratch. This saves time and money!
FREE BONUS: Presentation Slides—Available in PowerPoint, Keynote, and JPGs for any presentation software.
