Lake Mary, FL—Charisma Media launches Philippines-based author Joey Bonifacio's latest teaching on the power of connecting to God and one another in The LEGO Principle.
Steve Strang, CEO of Charisma Media and one of America’s most influential evangelicals according to Time magazine, featured Bonifacio in the September 2012 issue of Charisma magazine.
The Discipleship in Action column features a look inside Victory church in Manila, Philippines, where Bonifacio serves as one of its leaders. The multi-site church is home to more than 5,000 small groups (attended by approximately 62,000 members) and has consistently been growing at about 25% annually over the last 12 years. As the congregation grows, it is anchored on one simple concept: discipleship, as Jesus taught it.
The LEGO Principle follows the lead of LEGO, a company that has been responsible for transforming the way people play, learn, think, and enjoy for more than fifty years.
Bonifacio reveals that discipleship begins and ends with relationship—and gives the building blocks for being effective in reaching others.
“Just like LEGO pieces that connect at the top and at the bottom, discipleship is about connecting to God and with one another,” Bonifacio writes. “This is the LEGO Principle: Connect first to God and then to one another. It does not matter what one’s skin color, social background, age, or denomination is—God designed us all to connect to Him and then to one another. This to Jesus was what it meant to be His disciple.”
The LEGO Principle is available through major international retailers such as Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and Christianbook.com.
Charisma House has published eleven New York Times best sellers, including The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn, Fasting by Jentezen Franklin, 23 Minutes In Hell by Bill Wiese, and The Seven Pillars of Health by Don Colbert, MD.
