1) Revised First Edition of More Disciples Now Live on Amazon

If you’ve been considering purchasing the new book, “More Disciples,” by Doug Lucas, there’s never been a better time. The Revised First Edition (available at first in print only; Kindle Revised First Edition version to follow soon) builds on the initial version by adding Questions for Discussion at the end of every chapter, as well as at the end of the book as a whole. Colleges and universities, as well as discussion groups and adult Bible fellowships, will find these questions useful for assigning homework, as well as for facilitating discussions during group meetings. This version also supplies other helpful tools not included in the first edition, like a complete list of sample “Shema” statements designed to act as “filters” for persons of peace (people who seem especially ready to discuss spiritual things and could influence others to do the same). Finally, this new Revised First Edition makes helpful tweaks in dozens of paragraphs to make the resource even more helpful for individuals who want to apply the material right away. When it comes to multiplying disciples, leaders, churches, and movements — getting started is sometimes the toughest challenge. “More Disciples” helps you figure out exactly how to start. Author and researcher, David Garrison (who wrote the Foreword), has said, “More Disciples addresses head on the fundamental question: What’s it going to take to bring the world to faith and discipleship in Jesus Christ? More Disciples takes the centuries-old-challenge and, through the grace of God, places it within our grasp.” Find the Revised First Edition in print at:


(Watch for the new corresponding Kindle version to follow shortly.) By the way, you could view the purchase price itself as a donation to disciple-making movements. If the book ends up making any money, all proceeds will go toward translating Zúme into other languages and sponsoring live trainings for believers in frontier situations, among unreached and unengaged people groups. The author makes nothing.)

13) Zúme Online Web Training Will be in 40 Languages

It’s kind of amazing. By the time they’re done with phase 1, Zúme training (an online and in-life, web-driven experience designed to help a believer learn how to make and multiply disciples, leaders, churches, and movements) will be translated into Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Burmese, Chinese (Mandarin), Chinese (Cantonese), Farsi, French, German, Gujarati, Hausa, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Kurdish, Lao, Maithili, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Panjabi (Eastern), Panjabi (Western), Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, Vietnamese, and Yoruba. You can always see the latest progress by visiting:




These 40 languages are the first languages of over 5 billion people. And guess what: All 40 languages are now funded, along with an app that will make it possible for you to show the video in any of those 40 languages on- and off-line! Learn more at…



14) The Last Bit: This DMM Manual in Spanish is Amazing

Suppose you’re making and multiplying disciples in Spanish and you’d love to do a live training. What do you use? Until now, maybe you just pulled together plenty of notes you’ve made of all your sessions. But why cobble something together when a team of DMM practitioners has done it for you already. Take a look at Jonathan Training in Spanish. It’s called “Entrenamiento Jonathán.” It’s all about Movilizando Movimientos: Discípulos Que Hacen Discípulos, Obreros Que Multiplican Obreros E Iglesias Que Multiplican Iglesias.” Find the student version here:




and the facilitator’s version here:




We’re DEEPLY indebted to men like Curtis Sergeant, Eric B., David L., as well as disciple-makers in Caracas, Venezuela (including Julio in particular) for creating this manual. The amazing thing is — they’re now sharing it with us for free! Mil gracias a todos!

4) Mission to Unreached Peoples becomes Act Beyond

beyondUnder the leadership of Kent Parks, MUP has a new name: Act Beyond. The organization has re-visioned and re-structured, in order to play a key role in starting disciple-making movements that explode into thousands of obeying churches and millions of believers. View their video which outlines the vision and process:


The organization believes God has called them to Act Beyond what they have done before. The new name focuses on God’s amazing ability to Act Beyond all that can be asked or imagined. It invites new missionaries. It invites advocates who champion the cause of UPGs through partnerships. It pushes beyond old patterns that do not change societies from within. The strategies, results, and dependence on God will be well “Beyond” any human endeavor. For more info, contact
