GO MAKE DISCIPLES: Embrace Jesus' Last Words As Your Main Calling

$12.99

Jesus commissioned His people to Go Make Disciples. His words formed the mission statement for the Church - it's our main priority, our primary calling. So why do we struggle so much to do it? Why do we excel in many areas of ministry, yet not what is central?

There are many reasons for this challenge, but perhaps the greatest is the tendency of the Church to separate community and discipleship albeit often for legitimate reasons. Discipleship community is messy because people are messy; it was certainly the case with Jesus disciples and the Early Church.

Despite these challenges the first Christians pressed on to embrace their calling, leading to an incredible transformation that is still changing the world. But in recent years, the church has tended to create alternatives in order to make our calling more efficient by reducing discipleship to a class or an individualized process. The only problem is that it s lost its power.

This book calls you to rediscover the impact of authentic discipleship community. It equips you to lead small groups that provide both relationship and discipleship. Whether or not you ever lead a small group, this resource trains you in a simple discipleship process that anyone can facilitate. Discipleship is not complicated, but it will take commitment and it will bear lasting fruit. Best of all, you can do it!
