Start a Disciple-Making Movement with Disciples Path


True discipleship is a road Christians are meant to walk together. God intends that we are actively involved with someone who is discipling us while we are also discipling someone else. But in most churches, the responsibility or the congregation’s spiritual progress is put on the pastor and his preaching.

LifeWay Christian Resources (our parent company) has created a new resource with the prayer of launching a disciple-making movement in churches that will take some of the pressure off pastors. Disciples Path: The Journey is an intentional one-year plan for discipleship founded on Jesus’ model of discipleship.

Created by 14 disciple-making church leaders, Disciples Path is four volumes of 13 sessions of Bible studies (Note: not available in WORDsearch) focused on showing believers how to become mature disciples who in turn make other disciples. These volumes will guide church leaders through how to instill the doctrines, biblical understandings, principles, and practices of discipleship with the end of making disciples who would make disciples. This group of leaders included senior pastors, education ministers, small group pastors, collegiate ministers, and discipleship pastors from various ministry areas and traditions. The outcome is a series of studies that, when used as suggested, is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone willing to disciple another believer.

While most small-group studies facilitate transformation through relationship and information, these disciple-making resources emphasize the principles of modeling, practicing, and multiplying.

It’s our prayer as a ministry that relationships forged through The Journey will lead to disciple-making for generations to come. Will you join us in that prayer? You can also preview three sessions free at

Free Friday! Experiencing Grief

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Grief—what do you know about this experience? We use the word so easily. It’s the state we’re in when we’ve lost a loved one. It’s an inward look. You’ve been called into the house of mourning. It’s not a comfortable place. It’s not where you want to reside, but for a time, longer than you wish, you will. Often it will hurt, confuse, upset, and frighten you. It’s described as intense emotional suffering or even acute sorrow.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $3.95, is Experiencing Grief by H. Norman Wright.

Free Friday! 365 Days In The Presence of God

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

We must actively prepare for His coming by staying true to the faith, actively working for the Lord, keeping our hearts and minds right, and doing good. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “Behold I show you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.” We must keep the hope fresh that He will come back again. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with a voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive, and remain shall be caught up together with them in the cloud to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” There must be personal preparation.

Happy Friday everyone! And thank you to our veterans. Today’s free download, usually $15.00, is 365 Days in the Presence of God by Frank E. Ray Sr.

Free Friday! The Education of Christ

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $14.95, is The Education of Christ by William Mitchell Ramsay. Click here to download.

As one reads the biography of Jesus, one cannot fail to be struck with the effect that seems to have been exercised on His mind and nature by the wide prospect from a lofty elevation. Try to cut out the mountain scenes from His life. How much poorer would the Gospels be. It was on a mountain at dawn of day that He chose from among His disciples twelve, whom also He named Apostles, “that He might send them forth to preach and to have authority .”

The Education of the Christ is based on the Murtle Lecture given by Sir William Ramsay at the University of Aberdeen, on February 2, 1902. This book looks at how Jesus Christ was impacted by the geographical and cultural ramifications of the areas in which He lived.
