Shelves: devotional Finally got through this one which I have been working on in my triad for about a year and a half. It definitely got better near the end which redeemed it some because some of the earlier chapters were downright bad. This book is essentially a catechism for a new believer designed for people meeting in small groups of 3 or so. Lewis I mean despite being insufferably modern and Protestant for me, it Finally got through this one which I have been working on in my triad for about a year and a half.

This book will help pastors, church staff members, church lay leaders, and church members to commit themselves to make a difference for Christ through quality discipleship of senior adults. To fail to disciple current and new Christians, including those who are senior adults, is unacceptable in light of the urgency of Jesus in commissioning the early disciples. The senior adult age group is important to the enrichment of this special group and the overall work of Christ in the ministry of local churches.
Furthermore, the concern of this book is not just to suggest ways to minister to senior adults. Rather, the book also emphasizes providing resources for leading senior adults themselves to engage in ministry. This book is part of a series that provides the essentials for effective church ministry to all age groups. An additional book, Christian Education Leadership, provides a comprehensive overview of Christian education for all ages.

There are twin prerequisites for following Christ - cost and commitment, neither of which can occur in the anonymity of the masses. Disciples cannot be mass produced. We cannot drop people into a program and see disciples emerge at the end of the production line.
