Product Description

To guide people, challenge them, and nurture them on the journey of faith so that they become deeply committed followers of Christ—this is the challenge of discipleship. Churches of every type and size struggle to “do” discipleship well. Stride: Creating a Discipleship Pathway for Your Church offers a practical model that works.

Pastor Mike Schreiner and coauthor Ken Willard developed this successful pathway for discipleship in their St. Louis church. It is a step-by-step process that meets people wherever they are and helps them move forward in their faith. Stride is concise, easy-to-read, and filled with examples. The authors give useful instructions on how to plan, implement, and sustain the discipleship pathway over time. This is an excellent resource for clergy—especially for lay leaders and staff who are seeking to develop followers of Christ in their congregations and communities.

Publisher's Description

Churches of all types around the country are struggling. The more programs they try the more evident it becomes that there is no quick fix or secret formula to help them out of their rut. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Movement, once said, "The way to keep a Methodist alive is to keep him moving."

It is time to recapture this simple yet profound truth and get back to the basics of making fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The authors developed and launched a highly successful pathway to discipleship in their church (Morning Star UMC, in St.Louis). Here, they show others how to create a successful discipleship pathway for their own particular contexts, based on the principles developed at Morning Star.

Willard and Schreiner share the process of developing a discipleship pathway that meets individual people where they are. They provide examples of each element and practical instruction on how to plan, implement and sustain the discipleship pathway. The authors are teaching this material in conferences around the UM connection, from New Mexico to Missouri. They also share examples of how the pathway works in other churches.

For small group study participants working through Stride, the Stride Participant Book (ISBN 9781501876257), a workbook designed to facilitate individual work on creating a discipleship pathway, is available to purchase separately.
