Overview

Discipline can either be formative or corrective. For example, training for a sporting event requires formative discipline; punishing a misbehaving child requires corrective discipline. We know that God's motive in disciplining us is his love for us. If he let us continue to commit the same sin with impunity, he would not love us enough to teach us the importance of avoiding sin. Use these tools to train your church leaders how to discipline the church with love and for growth. This download features a new format that includes audio clips within the document, and a newly redesigned accompanying PowerPoint.

This Resource contains all of the following:
