It is too easy to assume that discipleship is happening just because our youth show up at church. The reality is that discipleship can be a part of every gathering — whether formal or informal — if you are giving careful attention to modeling the way of Jesus and inviting youth to follow. Engaging Youth In Discipleship will help you think intentionally about how you are growing in your love of God and love of others and how you are teaching others to do the same. It will help you see even the little moments of daily life as opportunities for shaping your youth to be more like Jesus.

Reflecting God

Come! God's invitation is simple, but the barriers that exist between ourselves and a holy Father are vast. He has invited each of us, no matter who we may be, to an intimate fellowship with Him. Coauthors Gary Cockerill, Donald Demaray, Steve Harper, and Wes Tracy help Christians understand God's desire to cross the barriers to closeness. Reflecting God presents a journey to intimacy by recognizing obstacles and developing habits that bring Christians and those around them to a deeper understanding of intimacy and love.
