Lazarus at the Gate: An Economic Discipleship Guide

Article / External content not produced by TOW Project

The Lazarus at the Gate curriculum is a small group discipleship experience designed to impact global poverty. Lazarus at the Gate invites participants into a community in which they are supported in their practice of economic discipleship. Over the course of the 8-session study, Lazarus discipleship groups support each other in making four individual commitments:

  • Live gratefully: Regularly give thanks for the blessing of wealth.
  • Live justly: Decide on an intentional personal standard for how much of your wealth is for sharing.
  • Live simply: Make one lifestyle change in order to buy less for personal consumption.
  • Live generously: Make a substantial gift to fight global poverty.
