Dear Discipleship-First Tribe,
We want you to become the disciple maker God intends you to be. For those of you who are church leaders, we also want you to develop and lead effective disciple-making churches. We are praying that the fires of disciple making movements will spring up everywhere, especially in our primary context, the United States.
There are various definitions of a disciple making movement. In a blog post earlier this year, Disciple Making Movement - a History and a Definition we discussed different definitions. Here is a short definition:
A disciple making movement is found when everyday disciples are almost all making disciples through at least four generations, with at least 100 groups, in a short period of time (3-4 years) and there are at least 4 different/separate streams of these groups (each moving to four generations resulting in at least 100 groups) and these streams consistently multiply into new churches.
I have yet to find clear samples of disciple making movements in the United States (or Canada for that matter), although there are some early sparks.
Do you want to know how many of these are all over the world, though? Click here to learn more about disciple making movements around the world and what you can do about it in North America.
For King Jesus,
Bobby Harrington, Point Leader, Discipleship.org
