Disciple-Making Movement

14) The BackPage: What if we All Became Multiplying Disciples?

This past week, we were pondering… what if every believer in Christ worldwide would become a disciple who multiplies? According to researchers, evangelical Christians add up to roughly 300 million believers in number. (See, for example, http://www.gordonconwell.edu/resources/documents/statusofglobalmission.pdf ) So if each believer made just one disciple per year, the entire globe woman studying-200would be won to Christ (assuming we trained new disciples to do the same) by the end of 2021, just 6 years from now.

How can we ratchet up our ability to multiply? One relatively easy way would be to invite everyone to take the 30-Day Challenge at

http://www.MoreDisciples.com

It’s actually kind of fun, takes an average of one hour per day (max), and is something you, your group, or your church could do together. You don’t have to order any books, you don’t need a satellite uplink, and you don’t have to wait until your church hits the 1,000 membership mark. You can start today and see results within days. You won’t be asked to join anything, you won’t receive any commercials or ads, and no one will call. Your personal information stays private and isn’t shared with anyone — and the only emails you’ll receive are the ones you sign up for. What’s more, you can easily unsubscribe at any time with one click. So… what are we waiting for? Time is clicking by. Sign up today at the link above. Then spread the word so you can start multiplying today!

5) Anyone read “Pioneering Movements?” It Looks Good

pioneering_movementsHave you read Steve Addison’s “Pioneering Movements?” Would you have a moment to comment? It looks good. With the subtitle, “Leadership that Multiplies Disciples and Churches,” this book is, according to the author, meant for anyone who wants to “obey Jesus example and call to pioneer movements of disciples and churches throughout the world, until he returns.” With a Forward by David Garrison, Jerry Trousdale wrote, of Pioneering Movements, “Steve Addison’s third book on movements builds on his previous writings by inviting Christ Followers to become “movement pioneers” wherever they live. Pioneering Movements is filled with examples of such people from the early church, Christian history, and modern day movements. Steve makes a compelling case that God can use any Christ Followers to replicate disciple making, while also providing simple, practical steps to get started.” Order it at…

3) Learn Disciple Making Movement Principles a Chunk at a Time

The idea behind the 30-Day Challenge at…group-prayer

http://www.MoreDisciples.com

is that you’ll be able to pick up Disciple Making Movement principles and practices by investing just 5-15 minutes per day during a 30-day window. Once you’ve got them “down pat” for 30 days, you’ll find they’re like any new positive habit. Maybe Christmas break is the perfect time to launch a 30-Day Challenge. Try it. You can always unsubscribe at any time. Log on to MoreDisciples and sign up for the 30-Day Challenge today.

14) The BackPage: Please help us Make MoreDisciples.com

We’re in the middle of launching a new push for “more disciples” at this new website,30-day_challenge_dare-300

http://www.MoreDisciples.com

We’re asking folks to walk with us through a 30-day challenge, during which, we’ll be challenging the global church to be the church that Jesus Christ has asked for all along. This challenge can be fulfilled by any church member, anywhere in the world. It is NOT limited just to North America. The way it works is — you sign up and for 30 days, you receive an email each day, challenging you to get “out of the box” in a new push to fulfill the Great Commission globally. Before you know it, you’ll be praying, phoning, and discipling like never before. You’ll watch 3-minute videos, complete charts, and share the Good News… and throughout the whole deal, no one will ask you for any money (disclaimer: God might inspire you to HELP someone), no one will add you to any other list without your permission, and no one will release your personal information. Basically, this is an effort to FINISH Matthew 28:19-20. It’s free of charge, but it will probably prompt you to step out on faith like you never have before. Please sign up today.

14) The BackPage: Learn to Facilitate Discovery Bible Studies (DBSes) via Video

They’re all the craze now. And for good reason. Researchers are pointing to HUNDREDS of thousands of participants in a wave of new growth in churches and homes around the world. Now, use this set of videos to get a jump-start prior to diving into your first study. There are 16 videos in all, but none is longer than 5 minutes. Watching all 16 will take you less than 80 minutes, which is approximately the length of one Bible study. (So you could, in effect, think of these 16 videos as your intro session — then start the actual method in your next session.)
