One-to-one: Resources (Ch 8), Appendices and Conclusions

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

One-to-one: A Discipleship HandbookResources (Ch 8), Appendices and Conclusions

The final chapter of the book is a resource list, including bible study resources & books to read on various topics. She also includes a number of sample bible studies for both believers and unbelievers.

There are 2 appendices: one on personal quiet times and the other on how to structure a course to train people for for one-to-one ministry.

All of these are very helpful, and if you are convinced that this is a book worth reading (like I am) you will already have gotten hold of it and therefore have the resources in front of you!

As we draw this book series to a close - let me encourage you to consider your one-to-one ministry:
  • How might you, in the life stage you are currently in, become involved in meeting with someone one-to-one?
  • If you already do meet with someone, has this book encouraged you and challenged you to ensure you are reading the bible together, praying together and sharing your lives with each other?

Perhaps you have been encouraged as I have and you also have these words from Hebrews ringing in your ears:
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:23-25)
