Discipleship and Growth

 new tools banner1

We understand that discipleship is a difficult and sometimes intimidating process both for people being discipled and for the ones who are doing the leading. To help, there are many extremely beneficial tools and resources to assist us in our biblical calling from Jesus to GO into the world and make disciples. On this page, we have listed several of the tools we are using at Restored for discipleship and missional living to help you in your walk and as you lead others.
