1L Spring Teaching Series
All Christians are reps for the 1L of Jesus and can love at least one person every day (2 Corinthians 5:17-21).
Christ-followers are invited to "Love One” by doing discipleship with this training. We pray this tool will lead to many disciple-cycles, equipping many believers to disciple others. We also pray that this process will help equip many “One Love Skate Reps” to #LiveOneLove in their communities.
Following are 10 "Arrow-up, Arrow-down 1L Convictions" that all Christians are called to live.

Special thanks to the leaders who taught these values.
Thanks for modeling unity in the 1L of Jesus (Romans 15:5-6; John 13:34-35; 1 John 4:9).
After watching each discipleship video, we recommend that you:
Pray this prayer: “Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me to receive Your One Love;
Please equip me with Your Power to Love God & Love People.”
- Follow instructions under each core value.
- Share what you are learning with the person discipling you, and have a conversation with at least one other person about what you have learned.
