Overview

There is an underlying dissatisfaction with the church among many Christians. They feel a longing for something more. As you assess your own congregation, is your church filled with active believers or is it fulfilling Christ’s commission and actually producing discipled servants? We have to count more than numbers if we are truly seeking to do the redeeming work of Christ on earth.

Glover and Lavy build a scriptural foundation for discipleship by illustrating the challenging spiritual journey from unchurched to fully committed follower and identifying the primary person at each stage of spiritual development, the questions for which he or she is seeking answers, the significant relationships that will move that person forward, the obstacles he or she must overcome, and the ministries a church must have in place to intentionally help move that person forward along the spiritual continuum. They then offer a template – a discipleship pathway - that can be used by any congregation of any size in any denomination to put into place in the proper sequential order the ministries that will allow the local church to strategically move people forward toward becoming fully devoted disciples of Jesus. Churches all over the United States have begun reaping the benefits of designing and implementing their own discipleship pathways using the principles outlined in Deepening Your Effectiveness.
