This is the basic discipleship manual I wrote in 1998 that we’ve been using at Church of the Open Door.
Some of the most memorable discipling moments of my life have been sitting around a table with a few men studying these critical truths of the faith.
I hope it will help you in your walk with Jesus and pray that you’ll use it to make many disciples to Him. Here’s your free copy, feel free to print as many as you need. Like grace, discipleship is free!
Here’s an overview:
