Description

The global church is facing a discipleship crisis. Here is how we move forward.

Pastors and church leaders want to see lives changed by the gospel. They work tirelessly to care for people, initiate new ministries, preach creatively, and keep up with trends. Sadly, much of this effort does not result in deeply changed disciples.

Traditional discipleship strategies fail because they do not:

  • Slow down people's lives so they can cultivate a deep, personal relationship with Jesus.
  • Challenge the values of Western culture that have compromised the radical call to follow the crucified Jesus.
  • Integrate sadness, loss, and vulnerability, leaving people defensive and easily triggered.
  • Measure our spiritual maturity by how we are growing in our ability to love others.

In Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, bestselling author Pete Scazzero lays out how to create an emotionally healthy culture and multiply deeply-changed people in every aspect of church life—including leadership and team development, marriage and single ministry, small groups, preaching, worship, youth and children's ministry, administration, and outreach.

Complete with assessments and practical strategies, Emotionally Healthy Discipleship will help you move people to the beneath-the-surface discipleship that actually has the power to change the world.
