Transformational Discipleship: How People Really Grow


In Jeremiah 17, the Bible describes a man who trusts in the Lord as being “like a tree planted by water…It will not worry in a year of drought or cease producing fruit.” This visual dramatically characterizes a Christian who desires to grow in their faith. The question is however, “Do people really grow?” Transformational Discipleship outlines the process that brings to life that kind of person described in the Bible. The information contained in this book is based on a substantive measure of research with churches and individuals who have enthusiastically answered the call of Jesus to make disciples. It will guide church leaders and members to intentionally develop and practice what is needed to foster a culture where people grow in Christian faith.
