A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR EFFECTIVELY MAKING DISCIPLES IN YOUR CHURCH
Pastors and church leaders desperately want to make disciples, but they often find themselves veering off the road of discipleship—or even heading toward a cliff. The many challenges of ministry cause churches to stray from effectively making disciples.
Stay the Course keeps leaders on the path, so they can help people follow Jesus until the end.
Church consultant and lead pastor Brandon Guindon uses seven essential practices—or “guardrails”—to guide you along the road of disciple making in your local context. These core practices come from his experience in various church contexts—from church plants to churches in transition—and guard you from danger on your journey.
Embrace these seven practices as Stay the Course challenges and inspires you. This resource helps you apply them to your personal life and implement them in your church, resulting in churches that faithfully make disciples and disciples who stay on track.
Brandon Guindon is lead pastor at Real Life Ministries Texas. He has a Master of Arts degree in church leadership and New Testament theology from Hope International University. Ordained at Real Life Ministries in Post Falls, Idaho, Brandon is coauthor of Real-Life Discipleship Training Manual and chairman of the Relational Discipleship Network Board of Directors.
