Oklahoma City, OK – NewStart Discipleship is thrilled to announce the launch of "The Obedience Challenge," an easy-to-use discipleship resource specifically designed for small church pastors.

Empowering New Believers to Walk in Obedience

In today's fast-paced world, small church pastors often grapple with numerous challenges in discipling new believers. From the lack of a clear discipleship pathway to the complexities of communicating the essence of discipleship simply, these challenges can hinder the effective growth of new Christians in their faith journey. "The Obedience Challenge" addresses these pain points by providing a structured and engaging approach to discipleship, focusing on the teachings and commands of Jesus.

Jesus defined discipleship as "teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Mathew 28:19) But frequently pastors get bogged down in the complexity of ministry, and forget the simplicity of this mandate: Teach your new believers to obey me!

What "The Obedience Challenge" Offers:

  • A Comprehensive 90-Day Bible Study: Delve into the Gospels over three months, focusing on the 48 commands of Jesus and their application in daily life.

  • Printable Obedience Challenge Notebook: A tangible resource pastors can distribute within their congregation, facilitating the study and application of Jesus' teachings.

  • Daily Instructional Videos: New believers will have access to daily videos from Darrell Stetler II, an experienced pastor with over 20 years of ministry, offering insights into obeying Jesus' commands.

  • A 4-Minute Daily Prayer Challenge: Encourage new Christians to engage in prayer through a guided format, focusing on praise, repentance, listening, and asking, based on Jesus' commands.

  • Community Connection: Daily reminders for new believers to reach out to their mentors and fellow Christians, reinforcing the importance of Christian fellowship.
