5 Signs You Have a Bad Disciple-Making Design

5 Signs You Have a Bad Disciple-Making Design

Mark Howell:165433112

You have plenty of adults being discipled…but you are rarely producing disciple makers.  Real disciples make disciples.  If all you’re making is more knowledgable consumers, you have a bad disciple-making strategy.  You can have a steady stream of people completing the curriculum, but if you rarely see disciples become disciple-makers it is time to take a serious look at your results.

This is why we actually keep track of as many D-Groups as possible at Brainerd. We want to see if people are replicating the following year. If they aren’t, we want to follow up with more training.

Can you do me a favor? If these ideas resonate with you, would you:

  • REACT. Do something.
