Strengthening the new Christian Consolidating new believers is a resource designed to help Christians raise their younger spiritual “siblings”. The preface explains that this and any discipleship resource in order to be effective should be ministered in the context of a mentor/learner relationship. The reason being is that it is the only example that Jesus modeled and time has revealed that the basic tenants of discipleship never “fix” in one’s character apart from such a relationship. Once such a relationship is established then the basic tenants of Christianity can be effectively taught. In this course manual, the implications of the new birth are taught and most Christians don’t even have this very well organized in their thinking. Other subjects covered are how to break with the past, how to effectively deal with sin, how to consecrate your life to God, learning how to forgive, how to pray, how to spend time with God, how to study the bible, increase in faith, trust God with your finances and live successfully with your natural and spiritual family.

Richard Spinos, “Rick” as he prefers to be called, was born and raised in a small denomination called the Apostolic Christian Church. Rick was born in a Christian family and as a small child was taught that he was a sinner and needed to have his own spiritual life. On December 31 1973, he felt moved by an evangelistic sermon that spoke to him that he was not ready for the Lord's return. He was too nervous to go forward for the altar call so he left the building weeping and went outside to the car. In less than a minute, his father got in the car and led him in a prayer and he became born again right then and there. As a young teenager with the encouragement of his father, he developed healthy Bible reading and study habits. Soon he began teaching Sunday school and became the youth group leader. He soon discovered that his spiritual gift was in the area of teaching. In December of 1983, the Apostolic Christian Church Foundation sent him as a missionary to Brazil to work with an organization called Project Amazon. He worked in a boat factory as manager and factory supervisor and oversaw the construction of over 40 houseboats, 1 yacht, and a Catamaran Hospital boat for church planting use along the Amazon River. He married his wife Sandra who is a Brazilian national in July of 1985 and they assumed the pastorate of one of the Project Amazon churches in 1988. In 1990, Project Amazon sent Rick and his wife as church planters to the state of Amapá, where they planted three churches for Project Amazon. In 2008, they affiliated themselves with the Vine International and the last church that they planted became one of the Churches under the care of this organization. In December of 2009, The Vine International invited them to join a church planting endeavor in Southern Florida. They accepted the invitation and turned the last church in Brazil over to the Brazilian Nationals in March of 2010. This past September they made the move to Southern Florida where they currently reside. In Brazil, Rick has written extensively in the Portuguese language in the area of Christian worker training. He has written Bible study guides, evangelistic tracts, and hundreds of small group lesson guides. From June 2009-2010 he hosted a highly successful Christian radio program with his wife called "Overcomers on the air". He has a Facebook page with a little over 1,850 fans called "Why be Holy if Salvation is by Grace" http://www.facebook.com/why.be.holy
