DISCIPLES DON'T JUST HAPPEN!
There’s a lot of talk about discipleship these days, but how are we doing at fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples? Veteran disciplemaker Ron Bennett asks people involved with church ministries three questions to help them evaluate their progress:
A disciple-making church significantly impacts its members and its environment, but how does a church make disciples? Disciples don’t just happen. They’re developed through intentional planning and the effort of a community of believers. While many churches want to produce solid Christian disciples, they are not intentional about making it happen. They don’t have a plan.
For years, Ron Bennett has worked closely with churches that want to make disciples. He helps them understand what a biblical disciple of Christ looks like and works with them to create an environment geared specifically toward developing disciples. That includes developing specific goals to bring believers to spiritual maturity and discipleship.
You, too, can make disciples in your church. But it won’t just happen. You need a strategy. You need to know what you’re doing and how to do it. You need to have the right environment to make it happen. Here’s help for churches that want to make disciples.Paperback. 111 pages. Copyright 2001.
