So many apparently youth ministries have a constant trickle of young people leaving by the 'back door'. So many teenagers make a commitment to follow Christ that ends up going nowhere.
Tim Hawkins has a passionate vision-not only for outreach to young people, but also for seeing new Christians grounded in the faith and growing to maturity. Rooted in Scripture, this book shows how both Jesus Christ and the apostle Paul went about the task of growing disciples-and how their methods and mindset form the basis of effective leadership today.
This manual for youth leaders is packed with insights from three decades of experience. Starting from the point where someone responds to the gospel, it takes you through a new Christian's first week and beyond, establishing a framework for a practical approach that brings gospel growth to young disciples.
Disciples Who Will Last aims to help youth leaders everywhere to teach and grow young Christians, so that they too will one day grow disciples for Christ.
