Do You Need Sustainable Discipleship?
You may not need Sustainable Discipleship: if you are making disciples. If your process is creating self-sustaining, self-replicating followers of Christ, you don't need Sustainable Discipleship. Sustainable Discipleship is not the only way to make disciples. There are incredible disciple makers all over the planet. There are great men and women who helped us learn. You can find God's models and methods in the Bible. Sustainable Discipleship is just a proven, step-by-step method of making followers.
You may need Sustainable Discipleship: if you don't have five generations of disciples, if you want to start a church with a solid foundation, if you do not have a clear plan to get people to maturity, or if there simply is not enough of you to go around. If you want a happy, solid church culture, if you want to help people thrive, if you want to know what your are doing and efficiently make disciples, then you may need Sustainable discipleship.
Is Coaching Necessary for Success?
Coaching is not necessary for success. We worked hard to get everything into the book. How to Make Disciples is a comprehensive guide. It is packed with tips, tricks, real stories and every single thing we do from start to finish making disciples. The book, the blog, and and a little sweat equity gives you everything that you need to successfully make self-sustaining followers of Christ. Add one of our three-day workshops if you want to add jet fuel to your disciple-making efforts.
Coaching is a great option. Learning to make disciples is like discipleship. I figured out how to be a disciple on my own because I had no guide. It was a long journey with a lot of trial and error. It could have been easier if someone had shown me the way. Making disciples is not different. Coaching can take our proven model and accelerate your understanding, practice, and customization. It is very helpful to have someone who has been there and done that to walk with you along the way. Let us add our ten years of practice to your experience.
Are there Ongoing Materials, Fees or Resources?
No and yes. No: We are not in the resource selling business. Our passion is championing people to make successful followers of Christ. The core text of Sustainable Discipleship is the Bible. Yes: Sustainable Discipleship relies on outside reading and some basic teaching tools. Disciples will need five or so books readily available from their authors on Amazon, ChristianBook.com or Audible. We have two workbooks, Sixteen Key Truths about Christianity and Sixteen Key Virtues in Christianity, that we cannot live without. We have made these available for purchase as well.
