What leaders are saying about the LifeBuilders Leadership Certification Manual:
Reaching and discipling men should be a priority for every church. The LifeBuilders Leadership Certification Manual is an excellent tool for training men to make disciples who make disciples. This manual has my highest recommendation.

Discipleship is the mission and command of Jesus Christ. Dr. David Gosnell has done a superb job in covering the “A to Z’s” of men's discipleship ministry. May God strengthen our men, which will ultimately impact our homes and churches!
−William Harrison, Jr., Pastor, Lexington Road Church of God, Kentucky
Thanks Dr. David Gosnell for a resource that is already making a difference in the lives of families and churches across the state of New Jersey. The Philippian jailer accepted Christ and led his entire household to salvation. This practical how-to-do-it manual is a gem that will enable leaders to step up to the plate and do what it takes to engage men in their churches. Churches seriously concerned about reaching and discipling men now have a manual that equips men for the work of service, ministry, and the building up of mighty men.
−A. Steve Smith, New Jersey Administrative Bishop
Discipling men is what we are called to do. This training manual brings a fresh perspective on the how-to of discipleship. This is a life changer. This will revolutionize the men, the local church, and the entire men’s ministry. The step-by-step approach the author uses in this manual is very easy to follow.
−Charles Crawford, Regional Men's Discipleship Director Church of God in Ontario, Canada
One of the most pressing needs in churches all across the country is having a vital ministry that can impact and touch the lives of men in our congregations. Recognizing this reality, Dr. David Gosnell and his team have created a stellar curriculum in order to remedy the current dilemma. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically endorse the new LifeBuilders Men’s Discipleship Ministry curriculum for use and implementation in the local church. It has been said that the church is not called to make converts, but disciples. Discipleship is at the heart of the Great Commission, and this curriculum will assist pastors and local church leaders in ensuring that men are not left by the wayside of the path of discipleship, but rather can be lead into a deeper relationship with God as they develop into the spiritual leaders God has called them to be. If you are a pastor and have ever wondered, “what can I do to help the men in my congregation?” – the LifeBuilders Men’s Discipleship Ministry curriculum is your answer.
