Replicate Round Up for September 25th, 2015

Replicate Round Up for September 25th, 2015

Replicate-Roundup-v3.1-300x143As we find articles and resources that talk about Disciple-Making, we are going to collect them and publish them each Friday.

 

Making disciples, building relationships

Many times, we believe we are not ready to disciple others, because we feel like we need to know everything before taking that step of discipleship. However, when we are dwelling in the word of God and truly understand the gospel of Jesus Christ, we can’t do anything but to share the greatest news in this earth. Jesus met the demon-possessed man and the Samaritan woman, and he told them to go and tell their neighbors about the power of God. These people probably were not the best evangelists of their time. However, they had experienced the power and the presence of Jesus, and that certainly was more than enough.

The Importance of Transformational Small Groups

Churches with programs aimed at the discipleship and spiritual formation of men are serving the whole body in a positive way. They are strengthening families, training men as leaders in the home as well as in the church. But, if men’s ministry gets really, really big in your church and begins to detract from small groups’ ministry, you should probably restructure men’s ministry in a way that it won’t.
