Generic Discipleship

June 6, 2007

Michael Johnson raises the point that many who enter the American church leave shortly thereafter, making momentary converts, not persevering disciples. Why is this? In this article, Johnson critiques generic discipleship and advocates self-generating discipleship in its place.

The material looks interesting and potentially very helpful. I have contacted them to see if the will be offering online previews of First Steps discipleship material.See the article here and the First Steps material here.

    This looks like really good material. I do a First Steps class for kids and their parents already, but I haven’t found anything I like (except some stuff from Matthias Media) for adults. I decided to order this material to see how it looks in discipling new believers in our church. Thanks for letting me know about this resource!

    Doug, you might also check out Discipleship Essentials, by Greg Ogden. I used this in our young adult ministry and it was well received. It runs deep and broad.
