Matthew 28:19 describes the purpose of the church and every believer--to make disciples. We understand the Bible is our content and relationships are the context, but how do you guide an individual towards a path of maturity? The Art of Making Disciples by Sean Keith will help you as a leader to understand the process of disciple making. An assessment is included to help you establish a regular interval for evaluation to determine if movement is positive or negative. The author utilizes five spiritual life markers that help you develop launching pads to a new aspect of the journey. You never graduate from these markers, you just identify the beginning and then measure how well you are in achieving positive movement. The assessment uses five well recognized purposes of the church.
Whether you are the one being discipled or you are the one trying to guide someone else in their journey of becoming like Christ, this simple but powerful book will help you get where you need to go.
