Product Description

In order to practice faithful discipleship, it is essential that we focus on daily aspects of Christian education in the local church, within its structures, and through faithful ministry. In this honest exploration, Blevins and Maddix will help readers find a new perspective on discipleship that will guide them towards a deeper, more developed and satisfying practice of effective community formation and faithful discipleship. By focusing on four key areas - definitions, dynamics, design, and practice - the authors will guide you toward a discipleship that seeks to honor God while teaching participants and communities essential Kingdom principles, which describe our participation in contemporary society.
