“The dynamic principle of one-to-one discipling is set forth in clear plans in Hall's course. He has done the work for us. It puts into a pastor's or teacher's hands the principles used by Jesus in selecting His disciples and training them to go into all the world with the gospel.”—Dr. J. Robert Ashcroft

“Jim Hall emphasizes the importance of discipleship as an important function of an Acts 2 church. He not only tells us why we must disciple people but how. This material is an excellent resource, and I encourage you to consider it as part of your training curriculum.”—Alton Garrison, Assistant General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God

“Jim Hall speaks from the front lines of 40 years of disciple making with an authority that could only be found in the crucible of experience. The Harvester's Handbook (now THRIVE) is more than a book or a curriculum: it is a process loaded with the practical helps, powerful tools, and passionate insight that has guided hundreds of churches into the greater fruitfulness of transforming lives.”—Dr. Tom Clegg, president and founder of the Missional Transformation Network

“Anyone wanting to learn more about personal evangelism and discipling will find it here. I heartily recommend its use.”—Dr. Robert E. Coleman, author of The Master Plan of Evangelism

“After using your curriculum for years, I highly recommend it for discipling new converts. The materials are well thought out, easy to understand, and directly relevant to the society we live in today. I believe this is the best curriculum of its kind on the market today.”—Dominic T. Gaccetta, former discipleship director for the Los Angeles Dream Center

“Jim Hall's Harvester's Handbook (now THRIVE) just what a new follower of Jesus needs. In a world where order, sequence, and truth have become like confetti blowing in the wind, this is a sequence of study that brings stability to a new believer's life.”—Bill Hull, author of Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker and The Complete Book of Discipleship

Meet the Author

James Hall is the son of missionaries John and Cuba Hall, with whom he spent 8 1/2 of his growing up years in Burkina Faso, West Africa. He was active in student ministries in high school and the University of Missouri, where he received a BA in English Literature. He graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary in 1970 with a Master of Divinity. Since then he has served as Chi Alpha Director for the Illinois District Assemblies of God (6 1/2 years) and as senior pastor of Urbana (Illinois) Assembly of God (9 1/2 years). After several teaching trips to Singapore, Jim and his family spent a year on the pastoral staff of Calvary Charismatic Centre (A/G) in Singapore, where he began writing materials for new Christians. After years of careful study of the Scriptures, much thought, and countless personal witnessing and discipling exchanges, God birthed in Jim's spirit guidelines and lessons for expressing God's love and message to the lost, and lessons to guide new believers in mentoring relationship. These were published under the title The Harvester's Handbook (recently re-edited and renamed THRIVE - A Handbook for New Christians). Since 1989, Jim has answered God's call to train church members nationwide and overseas in personal evangelism and discipling new believers. In March 1992, the Halls received appointment as U.S. missionaries with the Assemblies of God and continue in this role. SENT! to your neighbors is a new resource that focuses specifically on reaching non-followers who are already in a believer's world.
