Reviews - What do customers think about Intensive Discipleship Course: Being Useful to God NOW?
A superb teacher. Sep 15, 2008
Mr. Carafano is possibly the best at what he does, which is disciple young teens and adults. He teaches by "doing" what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, to lay down your life for others. He has taken teen groups to many nations to reach the lost and serve, giving the young adults the responsibility for the ministry. It is not a come and watch me ministry. It is a come and "do" ministry for young people.
It is a blessing that he has taken the time to write down for all of us the wisdom that God has granted him in the area of discipleship. A true seeker won't be disappointed.

This course takes young people deeper than most and challenges them to live out their faith in a Christ-honoring manner. It is a great resource."
