Wesleyan Publishing House has developed these free discipleship resources for the local church. These resources are ideal for nurturing spiritual formation church-wide or in small-groups. The Wesleyan Church seeks to support and enable shepherds who have been called to make flocks of disciples, to shepherd them, and lead them into a deeper Christlikeness.

This Shepherding Resources includes: Group Leader’s Guide

About the Book

General superintendent of The Wesleyan Church, Wayne Schmidt, addresses both angles of the ministry velocity challenge and offers scriptural strategies for sustainable momentum. Based on biblical principles rooted in the leadership of Joshua, Schmidt teaches pastors how to lead through every phase of momentum, so that the church can capitalize on its God-given opportunities.

This book combines two previous Wesleyan Publishing House releases: Ministry Momentum: How to Get It, Keep It, and Use It in Your Church and Lead On: Why Churches Stall and How Leaders Get Them Going.
