A Guide for Understanding the Theology, Philosophy, and Practice of Christian Discipleship

“Saturate Field Guide – Principles & Practices for Being Disciples of Jesus in the Every Daily Stuff of Life” is designed to encourage group interaction, and to inspire individual thought provoking introspection and self evaluation. Specific exercises facilitate personal Christian growth, and equip them to reproduce followers of Jesus.

The material is formatted to be used over an eight week period, with different lessons for each of six days per week. To receive the greatest benefit from the course; it is anticipated that each lesson may require approximately one hour per day. An added feature of the manual is in the design to lay flat during study.

The authors have a heart for discipleship, and a passion to saturate participants in the gospel, to intentionally live Christ like lives in the mundane routines of everyday life. “Saturate Field Guide – Principles & Practices for Being Disciples of Jesus in the Every Daily Stuff of Life” is an excellent disciple teaching manual for anyone desirous to live a life of influence and impact on others while growing in Christian character and vision for mission themselves.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

Nurturing Community through Adult Bible Fellowships


My Monday Musing – January 25th

Nurturing Community through Adult Bible Fellowships

What a blessing it is to look forward to Sunday Morning Worship with the body of Christ at Woodland Shores Baptist Church…and to be a part of the ABF team.

In our ABF Manual (Growing Adults on Sunday Morning) Pastor Knute encourages us to look at our ABF classes as a step beyond traditional, adult Sunday School classes and to see them as “a congregation within a congregation” providing:

• Organized Fellowship
• Defined Caring
• Accountability in Ministry
• Teaching Time, and
• Outreach Opportunities

I count it a privilege to be a involved with the members of the Legacy Class as we have intentionally been incorporating these principles.

Even with the shaky start during the month of January, due to the icy roads, wind and snow on two consecutive Sundays; as I talk with Teachers, Leaders, and members of others classes, I am getting an overall sense of encouragement as they move forward as a class in accomplishing these same goals.

Pastor Craig’s sermon from chapter four of Mark provided insight into the Parables of Jesus. We examined these verses in our ABF classes to make more specific application to our lives.

“…He who has ears to hear, let him hear” the words of Jesus from Mark 4:9
