FREE DISCIPLESHIP GUIDE: Some Follow Up Help
For the last few years I've received numerous e-mails asking about good
discipleship material. I've recommended various books, and even linked a few.
But I finally thought to myself, "Self . . . you should get them something for
So I called my buddy Leonard who wrote a discipleship guide that I've used with
a number of kids in my ministry over the years. I asked him if he would mind if
we gave it away . . . and Leonard said, "Sure, why not!" So now we have it on
our web site for FREE!
I love this discipleship book. Whenever I had a student come to Christ through
our ministry, I would always ask him or her if they would like to meet weekly
to go through this book called "Welcome to the Family." Then I would take the
guys through this book- and my wife or one of my female staff would take the
girls through this book.
The book is 6 chapters and we would go through one chapter a week with these
students. The thing I like about this book is- it is designed to go through
one-one-one, out loud WITH THE STUDENT. Then there is a homework assignment
that they do through the week on their own. Then you meet again, review the
homework assignment, and go through the next chapter.
This is an outstanding tool for you to use in your ministry, to follow up with
new believers in the foundation of their faith. And . . . it's FREE!
