Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Becoming a Disciple- Maker
By Billie Hanks Jr with Randy Craig
Disciple-making describes effective Christian follow up by establishing a one-to-one discipling process at your church. A group of more mature believers are selected and trained to become equipped Disciple-Makers. When a new Christian or new member joins your church, they are offered a friendship with one of these trained Disciple-Makers. They meet one-to-one once per week, usually for coffee, breakfast, lunch, or dinner for about 1 ½ hours and learn to develop spiritual growth skills. The goal is for each new Christian to establish a friendship – become a self-feeder from the Word of God – grow spiritually – and then share their faith with others resulting in spiritual multiplication!
New Creature Creations
Curriculum for Parents & Pastor's Alike
New Creature Creations (NCC) is an animated curriculum specifically designed to reach and teach kids with the Gospel of Christ. We believe God has designed us to be creative for His glory. In order for us to reach the generations to come, we must use new and exciting methods. Each of our lessons uses the Hook, Book, Look, Took format to engage children and clearly communicate deep biblical truths on a childlike level. Our animated characters and their situations are used as the “Hook” to teach kids about the greatness of God. The ultimate goal of NCC is to evangelize, energize, equip, and excite the generations for the glory of God and each lesson seeks to teach God-centered truths that will help anchor kids in the Christian faith.
