As we find articles and resources that talk about Disciple-Making, we are going to collect them and publish them each Friday.
Jesus preached to the crowds, but He invested in the few: 12 disciples overall, three with whom He spent more time (Peter, James, and John), and perhaps one with whom He spent even more time (Peter). Many church leaders don’t operate that way, though – and that’s a problem. Here are some reasons I’ve observed that explain this omission:
“Churches in North America are dying from a lack of disciple-making,” he writes. “Success—bearing fruit in the life of a church—means having a pattern of making disciples who make disciples that results in the community being noticeable better…. Discipleship is sharing life and seeking to reproduce ourselves in others,” he says.
