For Small Groups: We recommend The Discipleship Essentials Series or The M-7 Project. The Discipleship Essentials series is written as a systematic theology of many of the “essential” pieces of information about the Christian faith. These are great resources to walk through with new believers, or to take your disciples through. The M-7 Project focuses more in-depth specifically on the “marks” of the character and conduct of Christ (listed in terms paragraph.) This would be a great resource to take your group through after The Discipleship Essentials.
For Churches: We highly recommend your hosting a Disciple Making Church Seminar before implementing The Discipleship Essentials series. We can help you understand how it is designed and how it can help you strategically structure your disciple making small group ministry to make more disciples.
For Pastors: We have a new online equipping group for pastors called The Making of a Disciple Making Pastor. This is a phenomenal group, and we cannot overstate how good of an investment it would be for you as a pastor to join. You will learn how to become a leader worth following who actively is engaging with and accomplishing the mission Christ left us: to make disciples of all nations.
