CONNECT WITH THE LIFE-CHANGING MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Disciples of the Holy Spirit shows how a dynamic, close walk with God can be yours each day through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

Simply yielding to him through the following spiritual disciplines: Solitude—helping you draw near to God for spiritual growth and vigor. Surrender—helping you surrender to God’s will and purpose for your life, preparing you for effective ministry. Service—helping you move into fellowship with others and partnership with God in reaching a broken world As you practice the spiritual disciplines, your concept of what it means to be a Christian will acquire a new, life-changing dimension.
