Who Needs a Friend When You Can Make a Disciple? by Barbara Enter & Gina Weinmann

Shepherd Press




If believers are not careful, church can be reduced to a mere social club. Barbara and Gina demonstrate how to find a cherished friendship through the process of discipleship. They have often observed, when women come to a new church, they seem to be on an endless search to "find a friend" so they can "feel" a part or "feel" connected. Often this leaves them discontent in their search. A more biblical and satisfying way is by developing discipleship relationships in the body of Christ.

Who Needs a Friend When You Can Make a Disciple? defines and highlights some practical "how-tos" to help women implement biblical ways to practice and sustain discipleship relationships.


"As Christians we are to help each other become as much like the Lord Jesus Christ as possible. That is what Barbara and Gina have shown us in their very personal journey to a sweet biblical friendship." --Martha Peace, author of The Excellent Wife

What better way to delve into the particulars of biblical discipleship than to read this poignant account of how two women took that journey together. They show how you will not only have made a disciple but a lifelong friend who will be faithful to the end. --Mary Somerville

I am thankful that Barbara and Gina have written this beautiful testimony to the blessings of in-depth discipleship relationships. Your friendships will be deeper and richer by following their advice and example. --Ernie Baker
