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.

A Milwaukee Event
On Labor Day weekend (September 5, 2016) we enjoyed a visit from the SBC Representative from Burundi, Andre Nyzaniye, and his wife, Marie. Andre has served as the pastor of the Kanyosha Evangelical Church of Central Africa in Burundi for over 25 years. (Our friend Prosper Ndabishuri has served as a coworker with Andre in this church since its beginning.) Andre is a faithful worker in God’s Kingdom. We are blessed to have him as a partner in the SBC discipleship ministry.

A MEXICO SBC REP VISITS GCC IN MILWAUKEE
In mid-April of 2016, Gerson Monroy Reyes visited us at Grace Community Church in Wisconsin, USA. Gerson is the SBC Representative in Mexico. He lives in Mexico City and is a close friend and coworker with Norberto and Lisa Cortez at Mission Mazahua, in Mexico. It was a pleasure to spend time with Gerson discussing the SBC discipleship ministry and making plans for the future of our partnership with him in the SBC Great Commission discipleship ministry (Matt. 28:18-20). Gerson is an electrical engineer and his father is a pastor. He was recommended as an SBC Representative by Norberto Cortez, the founder and administrator of Mission Mazahua.
