Through the years we've developed a good number of materials to assist you in your spiritual journey and help you walk alongside others. Here are several tried and true discipleship resources.
The Adventure of Discipling Others
by Ron Bennett and John Purvis
Just like Jesus, you can pour faith into other Christ-followers. God can use you to help them grow spiritually and fulfill their unique niche in God’s Kingdom. In this this comprehensive handbook and Bible study you’ll learn why Christians are called to disciple believers, what topics lay a biblical foundation for new Christians, and how to develop a discipling process.
by Ron Bennett
Disciples don't just happen. While there's a lot of talk about discipleship these days, churches need to evaluate how well they're doing when it comes to fulfilling Jesus' Great Commission to "Go . . . make disciples." Vetran disciplemaker Ron Bennett extends church ministries three essential questions to help evaluate their progress: What impact is your church having on the culture in which it lives? How effective is your church in populating heaven? Are the lives of believers radically changed as a result of their encounter with Christ and your church? This practical, concise resource will help churches that want to be purposeful about making disciples.
Down to Earth Discipling
by Scott Morton
Here's a personal ministry book that anybody can use. It's a practical, friendly, workable guide to everything you need to know about discipling without terrifying you or those you want to reach. You could think of it as a "discipleship for dummies" book. It breaks out discipling into simple, manageable steps, based firmly on biblical principles about reaching your world for Christ and following up those who respond to the Gospel's call.
The Lost Art of Disciple Making
by LeRoy Eims
"Every believer in Jesus Christ deserves the opportunity of personal nurture and development." says LeRoy Eims. But all too often the opportunity isn't there. We neglect the young Christian in our whirl of programs, church services, and fellowship groups. And we neglect to raise up workers and leaders who can disciple young believers into mature and fruitful Christians. In simple, practical, and biblical terms, LeRoy Eims revives the lost art of disciple making. While there is no "instant path" to maturity, this book examines the growth process in the life of a Christian and considers what nurture and guidance it takes to develop spiritually qualified workers in the church.
by Thom S. Rainer and Eric Geiger
From the design of Apple products to Google's uncluttered homepage, simple ideas are changing the world. Now in paperback, Simple Church guides Christians back to the simple Gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. With insights based on case studies of 400 American churches, Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove the disciplemaking process is often too complex. Simple churches thrive by taking four ideas to heart: This book examines clarity, movement, alignment, and focus, clearly showing why it is time to simplify.
