  1. I am interested in potentially implementing this material at my church but I’m researching it first before presenting it to my Pastor.


    1. Hello Dale,

      My name is James Hunt and I just received the information of your post. I understand you are interested in learning more about the “How Can I Help?” training. We would love to assist you in the endeavor of going and making disciples. I have a myriad of resources I can send you, but perhaps the best one is the training book itself. I think you will find that the “How Can I Help?” book will be the greatest asset in your hands as you talk with your pastor about its use in your church.

      We have a package of 10 books, a leadership guide and a DVD put together by our founder and my father, Dr. W.H. “Skip” Hunt. The leadership guide is a must have for anyone teaching the course and the DVD is a unique opportunity to walk through the lessons with Dr. Hunt and share some of his unique insights not included in the other training materials. We do offer all the books and materials individually, it is recommended that everyone in your class have their own book. Information on pricing is available on the website in our store but I will be more than happy to send along a price sheet with the free book I’d like to send to you.

      All I need is your address! If you have any further questions feel free to send them to my attention at jhunt@christianhelplines.org or reply here. Thank you for your interest in Christian Helplines, Inc.

      Your Brother in Christ,

      James H. Hunt
