To guide others to follow Jesus you need a map of the journey that identifies the stages of emotional and spiritual growth. It needs to be simple and compelling. It needs to celebrate all the stages. Most of all, it needs to engage ALL the people in your church or community to be inspired to take their next step with Jesus.
That’s why Bill and Kristi Gaultiere developed the CHRIST stages model of growth that they unpack in their new book Journey of the Soul and the companion Leader Guide and Soul Talk Cards. It’s a proven path for following Jesus, caring for your soul, and learning to love others more effectively.
Church leaders, spiritual directors, and soul friends are loving this discipleship pathway so much that Journey of the Soul was #1 on Amazon as a new release in Christian Counseling. This is a book for you and the people that you teach, lead, or care for to become healthier in their feelings and faith.
In this session you’ll learn:
- Design a more effective discipleship process for your church
- Lead small groups and conversations that care for people and guide them according to their CHRIST stage
- Encourage everyone to develop empathy and soul care practices that fit with each stage
- Answers to your questions about best practices for discipling people who are in different stages
