Discipleship Training Material

We are offering access to exciting, new "Discipleship Training Material" (DTM) for free, no strings attached, for your benefit, the benefit of others, and to the glory of God. DTM offers the opportunity to benefit by it yourself, use it to help disciple others, and/or pass it on to others to use in helping others grow in Christ. You can even edit it to your own liking if you wish. It can be freely accessed by using the following URL. http://pastormerrill.wixsite.com/website/discipleship-training-ministry We don't have to memorize this, but can easily access it by putting it in our "Bookmarks" or "Favorites". DTM is a great tool that the Lord will use to minister to the person that just wants to go through it on their own. An even greater ministry will be when it is used one-on-one by one person discipling another. It can be printed out for use in group studies large or small, or even used all on-line together in the same room or spread out in different parts of the world. The DTM could even be copied on to a PowerPoint program and used in church sanctuaries, conferences, or with any other large audience. Those that would want to put it on YouTube (or on other video media or ways of communication) are free to do so as well.

Many in the world may have access to the Internet, yet haven't found a good way to be discipled there for free. People without a church, personal pastoral leadership, or any Christians to guide them can now benefit from this DTM. It can be used by husbands and wives, parents and children, as well as other people that want to grow in their relationship with one another while growing in the Lord together. Those that are lonely can use it to grow in their fellowship with the Lord. There are many various groups of people in our world that can benefit by growing to know the Lord through the use of this "help", as well as becoming better equipped to serve Him.

DTM is being given to you freely, as well as to many others around the world that want to help fulfill Christ's Great Commission in Mt 28:19, "Go ye therefore and teach all nations (make disciples)." Pastors (and their people) that want to see their churches grow in number and in spiritual growth, who want to see their people discipled and maturing in Christ, will want to take advantage of this free and effective resource. Those in hospital ministries, prison ministries, rehab centers, and a vast field of other areas where groups of people can be reached, can find ways to use this material in these places.

New Christians that want to grow in their faith, as well as longtime Christians that haven't grown as they would have liked and now want to take control of their growth will be able to do so by taking advantage of this opportunity. Christians that want to be of service to the Lord can now use this material to help others grow, or they can pass the URL on to others that may want to help others grow. With smart-phones and the occasions where we have time on our hands, there is easy access to this material to better use this time by reading over and over this material at these times.

Churches, their various ministries, Christian Education organizations, Missionaries, Bible study group leaders, “Sunday School” teachers, Christian parents, people on Christian and other social media websites can share this URL. Organizations and individuals with their own websites can set up a link to access the DMT URL. Whatever means of communication tools we have access to should be used to pass this free material on. Whether that be with snail-mail, e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and all the other options at our disposal. Even those who don't use these forms of communication can pass it on to those that do.

Use your search engines to locate appropriate people that you can share it with on line. For example: search for churches in Austin, Texas. Find their website and an e- mail address. Put that address in your "To" box on your e-mail, and then cut and paste this page your reading here in your "Message" box, and hit send. E-mail addresses abound on-line that you can send this URL to. This in itself is its own ministry. Proverbs 11:30 says "...and he that winneth souls is wise." A wise thing to do is pass this URL on to others, so that Christians will mature and work to win more souls and edify the body of Christ; as God has called us to do in Eph 4:12. It would take less time to send this URL on to someone else than it takes to read this message. It can be sent out to others not only once, but as many times as we need to, as we find new people to send it to. Just like in Mk 4:14 some will be like the sower who sent out the Word, some will plant it, others water it, and others harvest it. Can you join with Paul, Apollos, and the Lord (as recorded in 1Co 3:6 "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.") and pass this on to others? Jesus said "Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men." What an easy way to be such a fisher, just in sending out this URL. You might think of the letters “U" "R" "L” as an acronym that stand for "Unlimited, Religious, Liberty”, or you could make up your own acronym to motivate yourself to be an active part in sharing this ministry. Surely the Lord will be giving people many other ways in which this link can be used for His glory.

Those that have received this message by e-mail can simply use "forward" to pass it on to others. Oh, how people and the world could greatly benefit if it was accessed, passed on, and used regularly. Christ has given us the command to take the gospel to the outer most parts of the world and make disciples. If we truly want to contribute more to His Great Commission, let us take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and send this tool to others. It is easy, costs no money, takes little time, and can be so rewarding now and in eternity.

May eternal blessing and rewards be yours!
If anyone knows of people or families in need
Please pass on the information

Church membership isn't like a warehouse or gym membership--it isn't about what you receive, it's about who you are in Christ and how you are serving Him. If you'd like to know more about what it means to be a member at First West, we invite you to join us on June 6 from 11 am - 1 pm for Membership Matters. This is a short course intended to share what we believe and how we understand church membership.

Lunch will be provided, as well as childcare for children under 5 years old. Please email [email protected] to RSVP (there is no cost to attend).

Incredibly grateful for these Kids Grow Group leaders who took on new risks, new challenges, and lots of young eager learners over the last several months.

Matthew 19:14, “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’”

Encouraged to be spending time tonight talking together about how to share the Gospel in meaningful ways with others. We’re grateful for our student minister, Corey Jones, helping us to think well through matters and barriers related to evangelism. Let’s make much of Jesus together!

Slow to Speak 05/18/2021

Slow to Speak

Regardless of whether you lead in the church or not, Christian, people are watching how you speak about the things you speak about. In this age of temptation to speak immediately about every issue on social media, Jeff Iorg’s podcast gives a healthy word of caution and prudence.

Slow to Speak Dr. Iorg discusses how leaders should model the biblical principle of being slow to speak; and warns about some of the consequences of speaking too quickly.

For the last 10 weeks Pastor Stephen and these men of the church (more that are not pictured) have been deep diving into discipleship and how it shapes the culture of the local church.

These men volunteered to be a part of Pastor Stephen’s final project titled “Equipping a Team of Men for Advancing the Culture of Disciple-Making in the Local Church” in fulfillment of receiving his Doctor of Ministry degree from Gateway Seminary.

This endeavor was met with excitement and continued to be encouraging to the men (and their families) and a tool to edify their commitment to Christ and to the great commission, to make disciples.

Thank you to everyone willing to give up their Sunday afternoons (some Saturdays) and thank you Pastor Stephen for leading our church in this way.
