The Mission of "Becoming a Disciple-Maker" is to help churches and seminaries TRAIN DISCIPLE-MAKERS - to personally befriend & equip each new church member with the needed ministry skills to enjoy a lifetime of spiritual growth & evangelistic multiplication.
What is the difference between discipleship & disciple-making?
Most of us are familiar with the term discipleship. “Becoming a Disciple-Maker’s” ministry focuses on a more descriptive term, disciple-making. What sets these two terms, discipleship and disciple-making apart?
typically describes traditional Christian education in general. Settings such as Sunday school & Bible study groups are contexts where 'discipleship' often takes place. The teaching of doctrine, history, etc. is often primarily in focus.
describes a life-to-life, Christ-centered friendship, where an older believer intentionally models an authentic Christian walk for a younger believer to follow.
Commonly referred to as mentoring, Christian disciple-making is much more. Instead of only telling someone what to do, the heart of disciple-making is also showing them how - training a younger believer how to pray, how to know & apply God's Word, how to share his/her faith, etc. - investing one's time, life, & love so that another may grow.
When your church has a culture of disciple-making, new members are no longer to left to "figure things out on their own." They are instead offered a friendship with a trained disciple-maker. They meet usually once a week – becoming a self-feeder from the Word of God, growing spiritually – and are trained to reproduce by sharing their faith and discipling others, resulting in spiritual multiplication.
