Walk with Me

Disciplemaking should not be reserved for ministry professionals or a select spiritual few. It should be practiced by everyday believers in the everyday routines where we live, work, or play. Whether you’re a church leader looking to build a disciplemaking culture or a beginner ready to get in the game of the Great Commission, Walk with Me is for you.

The Ways of the Alongsider

Disciple-making can be intimidating. You might think that someone who makes disciples has to be a teacher, a missionary, or someone who is seminary trained. Would it surprise you to know that disciple-making is just a lifestyle in which you offer people love, comfort, and encouragement where they live, work, and play?

Despite our weaknesses and fears, Jesus invites us to participate in the Great Commission by helping people live for Christ in the here and now. All you have to do is live intentionally, love God, and journey alongside others—life to life.

This ten-week Bible study with discussion questions spells out the “how” of making disciples through an alongsider approach to life. Discover and apply the practices of an alongsider, such as reading the Bible with others, asking questions, telling stories, encouraging application, and living on mission.

The Ways of the Alongsider can be used with small groups, in a class setting, or in a one-to-one discipling relationship.

Designed to Flourish

If you long for disciplemaking to become the mainstream of your church or ministry rather than a ministry on the margins, Designed to Flourish is the book for you. This guidebook will help leaders grow disciplemaking cultures that will outlast themselves; cultures where everyday believers are equipped to disciple others in the Jesus way. You will discover a process, biblical principles, and practices to build a disciplemaking culture.

Making Friends for Heaven’s Sake

The need of the hour is not more evangelistic methods but relational skills for building bridges for gospel conversations. Making Friends for Heaven’s Sake is a seven-week study and discussion guide that will help people move everyday relationships to spiritual ones where faith conversations naturally take place.

The Invitation

Over the centuries, God-seekers have responded to His invitation through a simple discipline. This discipline has been called a “quiet time,” the “morning watch,” or my “TAG time” (time alone with God). Author Chuck Swindoll writes that “seeking intimacy with God requires focused determination.” Without this daily discipline, we will not experience a transforming friendship with God.

Finding J.O.Y: A biblical journey to good health by William Malarkey M.D. and Bill Mowry

God wants to occupy every corner of our lives, giving health to our physical, intellectual, emotional, relational, and spiritual lives. This book will help you honesty examine your life, study the Scriptures, explore relevant medical research, apply some practical tools, and end up composing a life plan for health and joy.

Conversations with Josh about Art and Ministry

Can we mix art with ministry? The answer should be a resounding “yes!” but it’s more often a tepid “maybe” or “no.” Have we left our creative God parked outside our ministry doors?

With each discipline are reflection questions and a brief Bible study. Whether you’re a pastor, a worship leader, or a seasoned disciplemaker, this book will help you minister in creative and imaginative ways. You can order from Amazon.com. Cost is $5.95 each.
