The goal at DiscipleGuide is to equip the local church to carry out Christ’s call to make disciples of all nations. As you know, when churches are healthy, they send out missionaries. They produce the next pastors of churches. They develop the next generation of disciples. DiscipleGuide is there to make sure that happens!
DiscipleGuide is the church investment arm of the BMA, developing camps, conferences, consulting, and curriculum to give local churches the ability to grow and thrive.
They offer a wide range of free services to BMA churches, among which is pastor ministry consultation and a free Pastor’s Help Line, which is available to all BMA pastors and their families. This provides them with a confidential ear to talk and professional counseling on any issue ranging from depression to anger to parenting struggles. These are just a couple examples of essential services that DiscipleGuide provides for BMA churches.
DiscipleGuide needs your help as they continue to invest in BMA churches through the free resources and ministry support services. This year, they want to invite you to participate in the World’s Largest Potluck – a simple fundraiser where they ask BMA churches to take up a special offering for DiscipleGuide at their church body’s holiday meal – whether that’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even New Years!
If this ministry reaches the goal of raising $200,000, they will also be able to provide new services to churches, such as an intentional interim pastor program and pastor search services to help churches without pastors. In addition, they will be able to offer a traditional Sunday school quarterly for churches that prefer the previous format.
DiscipleGuide prays that you and your church will consider joining with other BMA churches in praying and giving during the World’s Largest Potluck. To get your church ready for the potluck, begin by registering at discipleguide.org/potluck. There, you can sign up to receive bulletins and posters to promote your church’s event.
Thank you in advance for allowing DiscipleGuide to continue to equip local BMA churches. Feel free to contact them by phone (501-358-7054) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or concerns.
