New Christians

When someone decides to follow Christ at your church or in your ministry, what’s next? Do you hand them a Bible and recommend they join a small group? Do you give them some CDs to listen to and a copy of Mere Christianity to read? Do you task a mature believer with regularly checking in on the new believer? Whatever your next steps, I’m sure you have some.

LifeChurch.tv has a kit, called the What’s Next Kit, and Tony Steward reports they’ve been shipping it around the world to people who come to faith through LifeChurch.tv initiatives. And as you might expect from LifeChurch.tv, they recently took their What’s Next Kit online. WhatsNextKit.tv invites new believers to begin engaging and exploring the Christian faith in four areas: Community, Bible, Prayer, and Baptism. Each area includes an introductory video, helpful resources, and an invitation to go deeper.

It’s an intriguing development in the world of online church and digital discipleship, huh? (Though I don’t imagine it’ll assuage the critics of online church who worry about the implications of discipleship and the sacraments.) Whatever your stance, be sure to read Tony’s post for the LifeChurch.tv perspective and tips of the hat to those whose contributions made WhatsNextKit.tv a reality.

So going back to the  earlier question: When someone decides to follow Christ at your church or in your ministry, what’s next?
