There is a lot of excitement this month in the Alongsiders International office as we launch the brand new Discipleship Training Manuals
"I felt at first like only smart people, older people, or leaders could be Alongsiders. Not just any member of the church...."
I went to a rural church to follow-up with a group of Alongsiders, and I asked them how they chose their little brothers and sisters from all the children in the community. One of the young women started to cry as she answered...
Sure, young Americans are leaving the church, but young people in the developing world face very different pressures and challenges to their faith.
Bob Goff, author of Love Does, likes to say, "No one really gets discipled, they get loved; we learn what we see, not what we only hear about."
