    This one guy in church I have come to like and help. He is kinda unique but he loves God, desires to serve him and such. I got him a book and some tracts to help him evangelize. He did not come from a IFB background and has an open mind. Discipling someone takes two parties but he may be a good candidate for this. Perhaps I should go to lunch with him. Got any suggestions? I will pay for lunch and just be concerned about him. More suggestions?

    Have you read multiply by Francis Chan?

    No need for more books Evan - just go and be with this man. Ask him where he's at in his walk with the Lord and how you can help him. Maybe read a book of the Bible together. Memorize Scripture together. Pray together. It's a wonderful ministry to pour into someone else's life!

    I plan to do this. Yes correct I have too many books and won't be buying anymore unless required of a church class or until I finish books.

    Remember that we are called to make disciples of Jesus, not ourselves!

    have him seek out his gifts, his might n ot been in evangelism!

    Put Mt. 28:19, 20 into practice. ". . .teaching them to observe all that I commanded you . . ." Jesus did not just give words but came along His disciples and helped them to follow Him.
