What Are We Aiming At? | Pat Quinn, TGC
“‘What are we aiming at in the people we minister to?’ Four biblical verbs–know, pray, trust, walk–came to mind that seemed to capture what all biblical counseling, preaching, teaching, evangelism, and discipling aim at leading people to do in their process of spiritual growth.
