Every Christian is called to be an evangelist; to tell others the glorious truth of eternal life through Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World. However, the task to which Christians have been called does not stop there. We are called to go into the world and “make disciples!” A ‘disciple’ is a student of Christ’s teaching, a follower and an imitator of His example. To obey Christ’s command to make disciples is to invest our lives in a cause with eternal significance.
The “Spiritual Boot Camp” book prepares Christians for the spiritual warfare every Christian must endure in this life as a disciple and a follower of Christ. Vital “spiritual strategies” are laid down in Chapter One and the remaining chapters provide practical help in the implementation of these strategies. Practical tools for effective discipleship are included; such as the Forty-Day Chart, the Scripture Memory System, the Record of Daily Bible Reading Chart, the Troubles List, and the Accountability Partner Checklist.
It provides instruction to ground the new disciple in vital doctrinal knowledge about our enemy (the world, the flesh and the devil), it discusses worship and obedience from the heart, it demonstrates the crucial importance of the promises of God and the power contained in them, and it provides essential information about how to recover from the sin and failure which is inevitable in every Christian’s life.
The Spiritual Boot Camp book will equip you with the practical tools you need to “… go and make disciples.” You can use it in your personal one-on-one ministry to others, or to lead an exciting in-depth small group discipleship program. This material was developed in the context of pastoral counseling and can be used in personal or pastoral counseling as well.
At Grace Community Church, Spiritual Boot Camp is level three in the Foundational Classes through which new members pass. It is a solid, practical tool to help do a thorough job of discipleship in the local church. It can help populate your church with truly spiritually mature Christians who are ready to disciple others.

[We are not using “Henry’s” real name for security reasons.]
I am very happy to inform you a brief information a bout my testimony
and a bout ministry here in Myanmar.
My name is “Henry” and i was born in Animist family background.

three brothers and i was the youngest in my family. My village was
very far away from Township and walking 3 days by foot. It is
very mountain hill area and remote area. There is no car and no motor bike. I am so sorry for both of my parents were died when i was childhood two
year old. I am not recognized till today my parent. They did not have
picture too. Therefore, I grew up from my uncle family. Many people
look-down and despite me when i was young. I was crying always for my
I have no opportunity for playing football and games with friends, no time to
attend school and no clothes for my childhood long life up to 10
years. I was so sorry for my life and want to died by myself many
times. No hope and crying for many times for my sorrow and unhappy
life. When i saw most of children going school and I was hunger and
want to attend school and crying the whole day. At that time my uncle
angry with me and give punish to sent me school without clothes, no books and no pencil for my first day of school. It is difficult to have school supply
materials. I am working hard for the whole day and i got short pencil
from my friend. This is my first time received one inches short pencil
in my life. How a happy time for me that day because of short pencil.
But by the grace of God in one day April 4, 1989 i was attend
bible camp and I received Jesus Christ as my savior
and Lord!!!Praise Lord for that day. According to scripture John 3;16
and Gal 2;20.That day was wonderful day for my life and changing my
whole life, mind and vision. In Christ i have a new mind, a new heart
and new vision for my life. God is good. I want to read bible in my
life and there is no bible. I am praying many time and one day, one of pastor gave me the book of John. It is happy day for receiving bible in my first Christian life.
I was married in 2002 and now i have 6 children.

school motto is To prepare God's people for work of service (Eph 4;12) and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful
men, who will be able to teach others also.(2 Tim 2:2)All students are

500 bibles to new believers every year.

Dear Pastor Ted
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We thank God for how He has helped us with the SPIRITUAL BOOT CAMP MINISTRY IN TANZANIA. This ministry has begun here in Tanzania in September of 2014 for a two-day Conference in Arusha which involves Pastors in and from Tanzania on 25-26 September 2014 and Rev Ted Grooves as well as Samuel Mitrofan doing some teaching.
Afterwards I continued to do this ministry and really have seen God work in the lives of many. I did this ministry teaching in the areas of my own region of - Arusha, but later the ministry has continued to expand and grow. I have done this ministry in five different regions - Arusha, Dodoma, Tanga, Mwanza and Morogoro. (In Tanzania we had 30 regions)You can see now how God has expanded and exalted it and has now been needed everywhere in Tanzania.
In the Morogoro region, I conducted a SBC Conference in the church of the Free Pentecostal Church of Tanzania with a Rev Gabriel Duwau-EE Director in Tanzania. The seminar was a Blessing and the people were greatly blessed by it. Rev. Gabriel Duwau has a College for organizing evangelists to reach remote areas in Tanzania. When I did this Conference at his church, he was very excited with the SBC Materials, and has decided to incorporate these lessons into part of his students learning. There I gave them the SBC books and they really have enjoyed them.
In Arusha I have met with many various testimonies of people about the success of the Spiritual Boot Camp in the Churches that have learned and implemented sbc program. Rev Mrema the pastor in Tanzania who has the Assemblies of God in Usariver was very pleased with this teaching and had played a major role in and for his church said that the people understood the significance of spiritual warfare, and spiritual disciplines. The Discipleship of the Great Commission as well had been a great revival in the witnessing and bringing of the people To Jesus Christ. Rev Mrema also has decided to compile four seminars in various places here after seeing the great effect of the SBC Materials has been as well as a blessing to his church.
In Mwanza region, Rev. Nicholaus Nzella a pastor in the Baptist Church said in his church most of the Christians there increased in the sharing of the Gospel. The church has used the SBC Swahili books greatly. There read the book and fulfill the Great Commission.
I had a team of pastors who were working with me and have been a great blessing to me. After using the SBC Materials in their churches they saw good results and when I shared with them to be together they agreed with me. I have a team of five Pastors who are working with them for now. The Lord has given me a good team, the Pastors are very passionate about this ministry. We believe we will continue to do this ministry with great trust and commitment.
I praise God for the Spiritual Boot camp program. God has raised up many in Tanzania, Thank you very much for your support, prayers and financial aid as well. We pray to God to open the doors of blessings upon you and your team as well. We indeed pray to God for you, we appreciated very much all you who have done so much for us and your team as well. We still need further support from you because the ministry continues to grow and the need for SBC Conferences continues to grow as well. We praise Lord also for your help in doing these promotions for the SBC Ministry, because the pastors who come to our SBC Conferences are the ones who made and help with the promotions for the SBC Materials. After seeing the SBC Materials are good and useful for pastors as well as Christians once they return home, they organizing another Conference and invite us for the help of the training, so you see how this Ministry continue to grow.
