■ A DISCIPLESHIP GUIDE FOR YOUNG ADULTS — “GODencounters: Pursuing a 24/7 Experience of Jesus is inviting not only young adults, but all who hunger for God, into a deeper intimacy with our Maker. Personal, candid, and intriguing, I found myself fascinated by the GODexperiences shared by young adults, and compelled to weave my story in with theirs. GODencounters needs to be shared with those we love.” – (Debra C. Brill, NAD Vice President)
