Three Free Disciple-Making Resources from Equipping Counselors for Your Church
My passion in writing Equipping Counselors for Your Church was to follow 2 Timothy 2:1-2.
“You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.”
Free Resources from Equipping Counselors for Your Church
I’m sometimes criticized for all the “free stuff” that I “give away.” People say, “But Bob, don’t you know that you could sell that as an e-doc?”
Yes, I know. And, I do sell stuff. Nothing wrong with that.
But equipping equippers is such a serious calling on my life, that anytime I can share free resources, I will do so.
So, starting today, I am uploading sections of the Appendix materials from Equipping Counselors for Your Church that you can download for free. Some have said, “The Appendix alone is worth the price of the book!” Well, you can still buy the book! But I do agree that the material in the Appendix is valuable.
