Buy Now

“Go and make disciples of all nations” became the war cry of the church throughout the last two thousand years.  Today we have institutionalized everything supposedly to make it more efficient and multiply the results.  The results have quenched the personal initiatives and responsibilities for disciplining those who come to Christ. The institution of the church programs and seminaries are supposedly taking care of that ministry.  Today few have been discipled and fewer have any plan to help new believer become disciples.  This book is written as a tool to help believers develop their personal ministry of making disciples. Nothing is more exciting.

Ten Steps of Discipleship came out of an evangelistic ministry in Latin America to solidify new converts to evangelical Christianity.  It is written in an inter-active, fill-in-the-blank format that helps the new believer to think through the meaning and implications of core Bible verses on which to build their Christian life.  Each lesson ends with a summary of new concepts that become excellent talking points for discipling encounters.

Before bad habits and misconceptions distort the new Christian, these principles are to be reinforced by a mature believer.  These steps are:

1.  Understand the gospel
2. Rest in the security of the believer
3. Practice a Daily Devotional
4. Discover power to live the Christian life
5. Make the church a priority
6. Take the mystery out of prayer
7.   Obey whatever He says as the best way to live
8. Face the temptations of life
9. Discover the will of God
10. Prepare to give your testimony

Whether you are looking for tools to develop your ministry or to ground yourself in these basic concepts of the Christian life, this useful workbook will train you for a life-time ministry fulfilling the Great Commission wherever you are living.

Buy Now

The 90-day Devotional Challenge is a discipleship tool to help believers develop the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading and application with an effective prayer model.  Disciples are believers that have established habits or disciplines for daily learning and following God’s Word in a living conversation with their Lord.  Repeating a process or action until it becomes second nature forms a habit.  If a person practices the 90-day habit of daily Bible reading, writing down an application from the reading, then follows a prayer guide by writing out one’s prayers in a journal style, a healthy lifestyle is molded for the believer.

Take the 90-day challenge and begin your journey of walking with the Lord as you learn to think His thoughts and converse with Him with your inner man.

 This tool is both for personal use and for discipleship/mentoring with a leader. Each week you hold each other accountable for completing the daily sheets, then discuss the things learned or how God is speaking to you through His Word and prayer.

  • 90 days of Bible Reading and Prayer Guide
  • 90 Bible Memory Verses

  Gifts for Today is an inductive Bible study of the gifts of the Spirit, with a special emphasis on the controversial or special gifts that God has given to the church. Of the 19 gifts mentioned in the NT, five or six had special functions during the foundation of the church, while the remaining gifts put into practice all that God has revealed to His church.  This book attempts to explain the biblical reasons for the church to focus on the permanent gifts, which result in edification for all the church, in stead of those sensational gifts that were signs of authentication and confirmation of God’s new revelations in the New Testament.

  • Historical development of the sign gifts
  • The Baptism of the Spirit
  • How we know we have received the Baptism of the Spirit
  • Transition work of the Spirit
  • The gift of tongues
  • Miracles
  • Ten principles of the gifts from 1 Cor 12-13
  • Ten arguments for the inferiority of tongues in 1 Cor 14

We’ll spend eternity celebrating the accomplishment of all of God’s servants throughout history, but now we can see a glimpse into the life of a few pioneers who demonstrated how the “gates of hell” fall before God’s people as He empowers them to “attempt great things for God.” This book focuses on the struggles and victories of how we got to our part in the great drama of the Great Commission.

This is not technically a history text, but draws on the history of the time to show the context of great mission endeavors, so it will be divided historically as:

Apostolic church and missions (AD 33-100)
Early Church and missions (AD 100-500)
Dark Ages and missions (AD 500-1000)
Roman Catholic Age and missions (AD 1000-1500)

The Book of Revelation was written for the churches for all to under­stand. Dr. Don Fanning writes this study guide for Small Group leaders to clarify the m e a n i n g  of the text and provide reflection questions for group discussions.
With the popularity of the Left Behind novels of the end times, many are asking questions and wanting to know what the Book of Revelation says about the events of the last days.  This book is written to clarify the clear and chronological meaning of the final revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ as John wrote in his inspired prophecies.  No other Bible Book gives a clear promise of a special blessing for reading and putting into practice the principles and implications of this Book (Rev 1:3). Every believer needs to know the Book of Revelation.
With all the public discussions of terms like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Armageddon, the Antichrist and the False Prophet, and the 144,000, all believers need to be well-trained in the biblical meaning of these terms and more events that will occur around the Second Coming of Christ.  When Christ returns and the world is destroyed what do we know about the new world? These and many other prophecies give the believer unique insights and confidence in our Lord’s amazing return to earth to claim His own.
