Books for Discipleship Ministry

"To be successful in God's eyes, it is essential that a minister understand the goal that God has set before him. If he doesn't understand his goal, he has no way of gauging if he has succeeded or failed in reaching it. He may think he has succeeded when he has actually failed.

As Jojie leafed through the pages of the thick English book, reading chapter titles, he was immediately struck by how many key biblical truths were addressed—something woefully absent from the other Christian literature he had ever read.

David Who?

The author of The Disciple Making Minister, David Servant, and I have a lot in common. We share the same first name, obviously, and we both work for Heaven's Family. But we also both wear glasses, and have strikingly dark, thick hair. This can sometimes cause confusion when corresponding with people overseas whom neither of us have met in person.

Books for Discipleship Fund

Based on questions he received from pastors during years of conducting pastors' conferences around the world, David wrote The Disciple-Making Minister with Christian leaders in mind who have had little opportunity to receive Bible training. Sadly, many Christian leaders in poor countries are being seduced by unbalanced and misleading television preachers who broadcast internationally. Those Christian leaders subsequently become the proverbial "blind leading the blind," to borrow Jesus' expression. The Disciple-Making Minister helps Christian leaders to reclaim their biblical calling to make disciples who obey all of Jesus' commandments. Its 500 pages cover many topics relevant to Christian ministry.

Seconds from Eternity

"I love you." With those words, Ashok ended the most difficult letter he'd ever written. His wife, Lakshi, would read it soon after his suicide. Ashok's poignant farewell was no pretense. He loved Lakshi deeply and would do anything for her. Several years earlier she had developed chronic bleeding—like the biblical woman healed when she touched Jesus' robe. Desperate to find a cure for the love of his life, Ashok spent all he had on doctors, medicines, and Hindu idols. None helped. Lakshi grew steadily weaker.
