    Timeless faith principles

    Janet Thompson's ministry experience and passion shine through in this practical Bible study. This book is not only a great resource for anyone in a mentoring/discipleship relationship, but it's also a helpful study for any Christian who is serious about living out their faith in every area of life. Thompson highlights spiritual growth, service, and discipleship as she takes readers through the life and ministry of Priscilla and Aquila. Thompson helps modern-day Christians purposefully apply timeless faith principles demonstrated in the lives of this first-century couple. This study includes specific directions for mentors and mentees (m & m's), but is flexible enough to be used by individuals and small groups.
