New Xulon Title Mobilizes the Church, Strategy Guarantees Growth Yates motivates and equips 'ordinary Christians' for ministry as Jesus commanded

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.'"
