Where there is no guidance the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory.
Spiritual friendships and mentoring relationships are the heart of LEAD and we're so glad you've decided to join us. The start of anything can be a bit daunting so we've compiled a starter list of resources that might give you ideas of what you wish to study together. We've broken them out into four major study areas: relationships, health & wellness, spiritual growth, and leadership. The sub-topics listed come from a variety of wise and trusted sources but aren't exhaustive - in fact, you're free to study your own ideas and interest areas and use your own resources to do so. LEAD is meant to be flexible and support just-in-time learning! However, if you're not quite sure where to begin, the following categories might be a starting point.
We also suggest a great place to start is with Pastor Art's article on Making Disciples. Spending some time getting to know one another and discussing the importance of discipleship helps build a solid foundation to your mentoring relationship.
Further resources are available in our own Ross Road Library or on Right Now Media. Others noted in the categories can be found at the usual retailers. If you know the title or author you're looking for but can't find the category we might have filed it under, you can use the "search" button at the top of this page too. Adding resources will be an ongoing component for LEAD so we will continue to add them as we can. If you have a great resource that you found helpful, let us know. We might just add it to our LEAD library!
