As we find articles and resources that talk about Disciple-Making, we are going to collect them and publish them each Friday.
Yet, the role of discipleship leader in a church can be an extremely difficult one. If it is a staff role, I would argue that discipleship and students are two of the most scrutinized positions on a church staff, which probably explains the short average-tenure for both. Everyone seems to have an opinion on teenagers and spiritual growth.
A church can have an attendance in the thousands but still struggle to build quality Christians because there is too much emphasis on the numbers. And this flawed thinking doesn’t just affect ‘big’ churches. In fact, many small churches that want to get big but can never cross the 200 attendance threshold can also be fooled by the numbers game.
