The Disciple Questions
Why? Who? What? When? Where?
Why Don’t Christians Make Disciples?
Our mission discovered in decades of service in almost every culture most Christians do not make disciples nor do they openly share their faith in Jesus. Most go to church, keep their faith personal, and possibly invite a neighbor to a Christmas service.
The Answer is Not Disobedience
Most Christians are aware of the Basics: “Love God” and “Love Your Neighbor.” Yet, few understand their role in the Great Commission shared / commanded by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 “…Go and Make Disciples of All Nations…”
Christians Would Make Disciples If…
They Knew the Answer to Basic Questions
* Why Make Disciples — You are Jesus’ Plan — Who Me?
* Who Would We Share With?
* What Would We Say?
* When Would We Do This?
* Where Would We Do This?
Christ has called all who follow Him to love God, love others, and to make disciples who make more disciples—in every nation.
Discipleship training helps launch believers into this full and joyful life and eliminates the excuses that many Christians have for not sharing the gospel or discipling those we lead to faith. The two most common excuses are: “I am not called” and “I have not been trained”. Whether in ministry or in the marketplace, we are all called to love God, love others, and make disciples. This training will challenge you to put into practice the tools you receive.
Listening, hearing, obeying and passing on to others what you hear from God is essential to making disciples. A children’s discipleship group uses the same 3 part process to make disciples that adult discipleship groups use (sorry adults, games are for the children).
1. Game Experience: The first part is a Game experience (our GameLife children’s discipleship) and “check in” (how are you doing?) and “check up” (accountability).
2. Bible Discovery: The second part is a Bible Discovery with everyone participating.
3. Life Connection: The third part has Life application (hearing and obeying) built into it.
God can move through an individual that is yielding to Jesus, abiding in Jesus, and obeying Jesus to start a movement where disciples make disciples that make even more disciples. We call this a “discipleship making movement / church planting movement” and it can sweep across your city, state, nation and be taken all over the world by faithful disciples who simply obey what Jesus is telling them to do!
