Discipleship Ecosystem: Developing the Fruit of the Spirit by the Presence of God


From the back cover of Discipleship Ecosystem:

I realized early on that the Spiritual Disciplines were the key. These classic verbs that describe the variety of interactions we can have with God were descriptions of accessing the complexity and community of God. I also realized that Spiritual Gifts as well as Fruit of the Spirit were inextricably connected to experiencing God in a growth relationship.  But if this is God’s method to mature us then why was I not seeing very many fruitful Christians?  Were most of us so detached from God that we were not experiencing the nourishment necessary for fruit to grow? Why were so many gifted people using their gifts without love, or patience or even kindness? Why were there so many poisoned apples within the orchard of God’s people?  These questions led me to God’s discipleship ecosystem.

About Denny Wayman:

Denny Wayman served 40 years as a lead pastor and eight years as a superintendent. His education concentrated on human behavior in his MDiv and pastoral counseling in his DMin. Accepting the mission of Jesus Christ to “make disciples”, his ministry focused on this most important and therefore most difficult responsibility. In Discipleship Ecosystem, Dr. Wayman took his systems training and applied it to a healthy discipleship ministry. In his next volume, Toxic Discipleship, he has again taken the lessons of systems and exposes the dynamics of a toxic discipleship ministry. Married to a licensed therapist, Denny and Cheryl live in Santa Barbara, Ca. They share two sons and five grandchildren.
