Resources for Discipleship

At Calvary Bible Church we started a one-on-one discipleship ministry almost two years ago wherein we train certain men and women in the body to lead other individuals in pursuing holiness and becoming more like Christ.  To help us do this we came up with some loose categories to help us determine where someone is in the progress of their spiritual growth: seeker, beginner, grower, and leader.  In the discipleship manual that we give to each of our disciplers we have a suggested resource list that is broken up into these categories.  I thought it might be beneficial to some of you out there, so here it is:
