MAITLAND, Fla., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In his new book, Principles to Make and Multiply Disciples through Small Groups ($15.49, paperback, 9781628398458; $7.99, e-book, 9781628398465) Timothy W. Yates addresses the tragic malfunction of the modern-day church in its lack of equipping ordinary church members to create disciples, as Jesus Christ commanded. With the Great Commission in mind, the author designed a strategy to effectively develop and deploy the common layperson to function as a leader in "small groups"—meetings traditionally held in someone's home or in a public place where Christian believers gather and focus on discipleship.
"[This book contains] a doable, yet practical approach to get every believer involved in the discipleship process," states the author. "[It moves] church members from spectators to participants."
Timothy W. Yates is the administrator/small groups pastor at Lewis Memorial Baptist Church in Huntington, West Virginia. He adds, "I have an earned, accredited doctorate from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and I wrote my dissertation on the 'Five Principles to Make and Multiply Disciples through Small Groups.'"
Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world's largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Principles to Make and Multiply Disciples through Small Groups through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
