Disciple multiplying is a shift in sharing. Disciple multipliers do not rely on programmatic approaches to making and growing disciples. Instead, they follow Jesus’ relational approach to investing directly and substantially into others.
Disciple multipliers focus on making disciple-makers (those who make disciples who make disciples who maker disciples) rather than just disciples who do not reproduce themselves. Disciple-makers who make other disciple-makers are the fuel of multiplication.
Think about the average person you invest yourself into. Think across the various domains of your life including family, work, church, community, neighbors, and friends. Which question below captures your actual attitudes, behaviors and practices the best?
- Are you struggling to be intentional about making disciples?
- Or are you primarily focused on making and growing disciples through programmatic strategies and public teaching?
- Or are you intentionally investing your life into others as Jesus did to multiply and release disciple-makers who make disciple-makers who make disciple-makers?
