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 FREE!"

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!
