A new book series!

This series was originally posted on In Tandem, a blog for ministry wives

Our book series for Term 2 will be on One-to-one: A Discipleship Handbook, by Sophie de Witt.

There is every chance as a minister’s wife that you either want to read the bible with others or that you are expected to! However, as many of us will openly testify, just because we have a role does not mean we feel we have the skills to perform that role. You might think:
  • I would love to help that new Christian along in her walk of faith, but I have no idea how to do it
  • There are some key people that should be trained as leaders, but how could I do that?
  • A younger woman has asked me to read the bible with her – help! Where do we start, what do we read, what should I say...??
Well, search no more – this book will help you with all the basics of one-to-one ministry. As Rico Tice says in the foreword,
If you understand this book and put it’s principles into practice ... you’ll be absolute gold dust in any church family. (xiii)
If, on the other hand, you have been doing one-to-one ministry for years, this book will help to ensure that you are keeping on target, making reading God’s word & prayer the primary focus of your time with others. It will also be a great resource as you seek to train others to do one-to-one ministry.

Therefore, it’s relevant for all of us – so why don’t you grab a copy, and join us as we start our next book series, beginning next week.
