Troubleshooting the Four Fields: Discipleship

Troubleshooting the Four Fields: Discipleship

Steve Addison:

Reproducing Discipleship truths/Vision casting: Disciples are not born but intentionally made! Teach them to obey the Word of God (Matt 28:19-20) and listen to the Holy Spirit (Eph. 6:10-16).

Don’t birth babies and leave them in the woods. Nurture, protect, envision, empower.

The Holy Spirit is more committed to your disciples than you are, watch for his work.

Teach them to obey the Word of God from day one.

Disciples need to be making disciples. Obedience to one command qualifies you to teach that command to others.

Reproducing disciples year after year is the best church growth strategy you can implement. It brings people to Jesus and trains them to repeat the process.
