WASHINGTON, DC—The Bearing Fruit Companion Study Guide is available now as a free download. Tom Berlin and Lovett H. Weems, Jr., authors of Bearing Fruit: Ministry with Real Results, prepared the guide to facilitate reflection, discussion, and application of the book's key points. The authors say, "We have been pleased to learn of the many ways that individual church leaders and congregational teams are using the book as a springboard for discussion and planning."
The guide is organized chapter by chapter and is intended primarily as a resource for group study, though it can be used as a self-study guide by individual leaders. Berlin and Weems say, "We hope this guide will be a helpful resource for those seeking to bear fruit in their ministries."
The Lewis Center for Church Leadership of Wesley Theological Seminary seeks to advance the understanding of Christian leadership and promote the effective and faithful practice of Christian leadership in the church and the world.
It serves as a resource for clergy and lay leaders, congregations, and denominational leaders. Through teaching, research, publications, and resources, the center supports visionary spiritual leaders and addresses key leadership issues crucial to the church's faithful witness.
