Discipleship without mission is discipleship without Christ.

The church often lacks maturity and missional impact because discipleship is at its periphery. In order to get discipleship to the center, leaders need a locally rooted, culturally contextual discipleship pathway to tether disciples who are disciplemakers to the neighborhood or network around them. Pastor and discipler E. K. Strawser shows that when discipleship becomes central to your leadership and community, then discipleship becomes central to congregational mission and cultural renewal. Centering Discipleship is a gutsy practice-based guidebook for leaders who are doing the hard work of re-imagining and re-structuring their churches and communities to turn spectators into missional, mature followers of Jesus.
Industry Reviews

"E. K. Strawser helps the church refocus our attention on real discipleship. This book is for deep thinkers who want to see Christians focus on what really matters to God with regard to who the church is and how to act that out well in today's world. Strawser is well practiced and passionate about what she teaches here."

Linda Bergquist, church planting catalyst for the North American Mission Board and coauthor of City Shaped Churches

"Whether you're planting, re-missioning, or recalibrating a church, Centering Discipleship is a field guide and compass all in one. This book is practical and tested in real communities looking to make disciples for the sake of God's mission, and it is a tool that helps us to chart a path when the old maps no longer work. With surgical precision and humility, Eun Strawser helps us unmask the problems that keep us stuck and imagine how our churches can disciple their way into the future."

Josh Hayden, author of Sacred Hope and senior pastor of First Baptist Church Ashland

"Eun Strawser is passionate about putting discipleship at the front and center of all we do as God's people. And her book, Centering Discipleship, bears testimony that when a church gets serious about really following Jesus, everything changes. This practical book is both compelling, as it is rooted in a lived story, and impressive, as it suggests practical ways to make this happen in your church."

Debra Hirsch, cofounder of Forge Mission Training Network and author of Redeeming Sex

"Centering Discipleship is a masterful book that powerfully illuminates the essentials of disciplemaking. By calling readers out of programs and into contextualized pathways that create lasting and vital transformation, Eun Strawser offers the keys to creating not only mature Jesus-followers but also movements of disciples. Read this brilliant book and put Eun's decades of learning and wisdom into practice."

Lisa Rodriguez-Watson, national director of Missio Alliance
