October 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Monday, repeating until November 13, 2017
Join the Women of Purpose Ministry as we begin to look deeply into what Discipling women looks like. We will be holding these studies on 2 different days at times for your convenience.
About the Book
The Gentle Art of Discipling Women brings practical, biblically-based encouragement and advice to help you meet one-on-one with another Christian woman in a discipleship role. You will first be grounded in the foundation of faith, and then be equipped to disciple another woman. Full of transparent stories, Scripture, and challenges, your own faith will strengthen as you learn to walk alongside another woman’s journey of faith.
A Leader’s Guide at the end of the book equips a woman to lead a small group through the discipling process. An additional free resource, The Discipler’s Handbook, will be available in PDF form to download in early January.
- Ground yourself in four realities of God’s truth so you can be strengthened before helping someone else
- Learn to disciple according to God’s heart, and not from your own confidence, knowledge, or ability
- Equip yourself with practical advice for every aspect of the discipling process
- Discover three truths to pack into every meeting
- Live out the mission to make disciples–and find it to be a rewarding adventure
I know that no matter what happens, Jesus will take care of me.
About the Author
Dana and her husband, Tom, have been on staff with The Navigators since 1978. Their family served in Indonesia as missionaries for eleven years. Upon her return, Dana continued serving with The Navigators. Dana and her husband, Tom, have three married children and seven grandchildren. Throughout her life, one thing has remained constant as she has been involved in life and ministry: the desire to influence and disciple women individually and in small groups.
In Dana’s Own Words
When the Lord led me to write this book, I was personally challenged. I am neither the perfect disciplemaker nor a writer! I have been discipling women for 40 years but, trust me – there were times when I blundered along! As I worried, God reassured me, “You are not perfect and you know it. You have been learning and laboring at this for years. So share what you’ve got and leave it with Me.” In this book, I offer to you what God has tutored in me over the years.
I pray Psalm 68:11 for the women influencers in the churches across America, ‘The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng.’ (NIV)
I am praying that you will be inspired as a disciplemaker and be refreshed and encouraged as you go through this book. I hope you continue to connect with women, to serve in your church and take up the mantle to make disciples one by one.
