You don't need to be a highly trained seminarian, holding an MDiv, to make disciples. The Apostles were simple men and Jesus gave them a simple model to follow. Using that model, the world Christian movement grew from a handful to over 25 million in the first three centuries of the Church.What you do need do is to count the cost and simply obey Jesus' command to "make disciples."Today, a movement is taking shape by those who are doing just that. This process is called …See More

Jesus said, make disciples... not members

Jesus didn’t tell churches to make membersIn talking with pastors, one thing I commonly hear is, “If we had more members we would be able to do more…” Because of the way we have been programmed in the past, a lot of times pastors and churches think if they are small there impact is small.  This isn’t the way Jesus thought. Jesus could have called the masses, but instead he called a dozen, ordinary men, and sent them out on a mission to make disciples.  Churches don’t need more member, they need…See More

One-on-One Disciple-making (Part 2)

What is the difference between a discipleship program and an intentional disciple-making approach? An intentional disciple-making process can involve studying a book, but it’s important to know that the objective is not to study a book, it is to learn biblical principles in the study and ask the question: “Now that I know this, how should I apply this to my life?” The objective is to learn what Scripture says, and be obedient to what it teaches us about living our lives.In part one of this…See More

One-on-one Disciple-making (Part 1)

I was recently at a gathering of disciple-making leaders, and one of the leaders said this; “Many of our churches are doing addition, when we need to be thinking about multiplication when it comes to making disciples.”  What he was saying is that we add people to our church, but we don’t expect them to reproduce themselves. Why? Do we communicate the expectation of reproduction to the people in our churches?  For many I believe this is a foreign concept, and if we want to see healthy churches…See More

Disciples Grow Best in Community

G – In 2010 LifeWay Research set out to discover what were the essentials in churches that were seeing Spiritual Transformation take place.  One thing that consistently showed up was the importance of living in a healthy Christian community.  Churches that are intentional about seeing people get connected to other believers (LifeWay termed this as relational Intentionality) were also seeing believers maturing and growing in their faith.  A few years later, Ed…
