“Go and Make Disciples” will become more than a church slogan as the power of Jesus’s command transforms our lives.
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.
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. Rather than looking for something new, Intentional equips you to imitate the methodology Jesus modeled for us.
Drawing from decades of experience making disciples, pastor Brandon Guindon equips you by introducing the eight principles of disciple making and practically showing you how to apply them in everyday life. Personal stories of success and failure in discipling relationships illustrate how we must be personally committed to consistently living out the values that Jesus modeled. Brandon also examines the obstacles in our lives that prevent us from imitating the ancient ways of Christ, sharing practical steps for approaching relationships differently and viewing the world through a Kingdom oriented lens.
