Publisher's Description

Rediscover the intentional disciple making methods of Jesus Christ.

Today, churches and their leaders relentlessly pursue innovation of the next new idea that will somehow capture the attention of the spiritually lost, yet very few Christians know how to walk out a day-to-day lifestyle of intentional disciple making.

Drawing from decades of experience making disciples, pastor Brandon Guindon will show you how Jesus' call to "Go and Make Disciples" can become more than just a vague church slogan when we relearn the discipleship methods that Jesus modeled for us.

Intentional introduces eight principles of disciple making, exposing their gospel roots and practical nature—principles such as:

  • Listening with the genuine intent to understand different voices and experiences.
  • Looking for and developing the potential in others.
  • Knowing when to firmly speak the truth and when to allow yourself to be interrupted.
  • Living a lifestyle of discipleship yourself.

 

Jesus Christ intentionally discipled twelve people every day for three and a half years and then commanded us to go and make disciples as well. And he empowered us by sending us the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide us. The early church thrived and expanded by imitating the intentional relational methods Jesus modeled, yet somewhere along the way we lost sight of the simple truth that Jesus' methods of disciple making are as holy as his message.

It's time relearn those methods, examine the obstacles in our lives that prevent us from imitating the ancient ways of Christ, and approach all our relationships differently—making disciples in Jesus' name and growing spiritually in the process.

Editorial Reviews

'Brandon Guindon has knocked it out of the park with this great book! Making disciples in today's world is not easy, and Brandon puts it all into perspective by sharing how to apply the eight practices of disciple making. We have a disciplined road map with Intentional. But ultimately, discipleship takes people who are trained and have the heart and desire to win people for Christ. So let's go make disciples as Jesus commands in Matthew 28:19-20 and how Brandon describes in this great book.' -- Douglas J. Crozier, president and chief executive officer, the Solomon Foundation

'Brandon knows how to tell a story and speak to others in a way that just keeps you reading or listening. The reason the stories are so good is that they are based on something much more profound, the reality of Brandon's life and work on those around him. This is practical, yes, but it is more powerful than anything else. Intentional is a special testimony of God's work through a pastor and of his family.' -- Bill Hull, author of No Longer a Bystander and I Will Not Bow Down

'I am grateful for how Brandon passionately explores disciple making in his book Intentional. Obviously, we need a return to disciple making in this generation. As you work through each page of inspiring story and practical guidance, you be refreshed by God's calling for the church to make disciples and see church multiplication accelerate through your ministry.' -- Jason Stewart, executive director of mobilization at Exponential

'I have known Brandon Guindon for twenty years and paid witness to the lived-out principles that he puts forward. Brandon holds up a mirror to help show us who Jesus intends us to be. Take the Intentional journey, and you will be better for it. This book will challenge and encourage you, and in the cooperation with the Holy Spirit you will be changed by it.' -- Mark "Moose" Bright, director of the Relational Discipleship Network

'Intentional is an extraordinary book that powerfully captures how to do the work of disciple making. Author Brandon Guindon does not give us a book of theory but a personal example of a multiplier and how he intentionally lives that out. In an era where church leaders are looking for resources to guide them in how to return to disciple making, Intentional should be at the top of your list!' -- Dave Ferguson, author, president and cofounder of Exponential, lead pastor of Community Christian Church

'Intentional is the only book on discipleship that I am aware of that not only gives you biblically founded principles but also has the personal stories and illustrations to help the reader get a picture of what discipleship really looks like. The book makes a case for being an intentional disciple maker and what that looks like on a day-to-day basis. This explanation includes personal stories from other disciple makers as well as penetrating self-assessment. This book is what I needed to read to help me in growing as a disciple who helps make disciples!' -- Matt Dabbs, church planter at Backyard Church

'Intentional simplifies the often-overwhelming subject of discipleship. Brandon Guindon artfully leads you through the practical process of unleashing your inner disciple maker! In reading Intentional, you'll discover that making disciples is more natural than you think. This is an enjoyable read and a must-have for every Christian. Frankly, the principles in this book apply to training leaders in business and any other arena that benefits from mentoring as well.' -- Wes Beavis, PsyD, clinical psychologist, author of Let's Talk About Ministry Burnout

'Practical is the word I would use to describe Brandon Guindon's book Intentional. In a sea of books that offer theory, Guindon provides practical help with everyday discipleship, using snapshots from his own life and experience. It's a great guide for anyone looking for help with a hands-on approach. I highly recommend it!' -- Jerry Harris, publisher of Christian Standard Media, teaching pastor at The Crossing

'This book, Intentional, is based on God's Word, and God always asks us to do things that work for real, regular people. Your life will become more intentional if you read and implement the practices in this book. Brandon Guindon is a disciple-making practitioner, not a theorist. Brandon and his wife, Amber, have personally discipled people for many years now. Brandon knows, without having to think about it, how to be intentional. Brandon began his ministry career on staff at Real Life Ministries, and his intentionality helped to increase our number of small groups exponentially. He helped develop training that has spanned the globe. He went on to plant a discipleship-based church that has grown and thrived. He raises up people from within to disciple others, to serve on staff, and to plant churches nationally and internationally. If you want to become more intentional in your life, this book should be your next read.' -- Jim Putman, author and senior pastor of Real Life Ministries

Brandon Guindon shows us the practical elements of disciple making. For higher education to thrive today, we must help students equip local everyday disciples to trust and follow Jesus. I recommend his book Intentional to help us do this better. -- Tony Twist, president and CEO of TCM International Institute
