Why use this Guide?

Along with 12 video sessions, this Guide provides a comprehensive and practical foundation for leaders and believers to be multiply disciple makers. All the essentials are covered such as forming teams, the great commission task and message, Jesus’ ministry phases, Jesus as disciple maker, the harvest cycle, Jesus equipping of the 72 disciples with His three simple steps to transition from connecting to sharing the gospel (Luke 10:8, 9), and creating a road-map for disciple making for local churches and regions.

Who is this Guide for?

Local church leaders and ministers, mission catalysts, state and regional denominational leaders—all committed to equipping local believers and leaders as missional multiplying disciple makers.

How to use this Guide?

This equipping can be delivered over a weekend retreat, over several weekend, or one evening a week over several weeks. It is ideal for either in-person or Zoom formats. It is modular so it enables a lot of flexibility for scheduling. The workshop host or facilitator could be a minister/pastor, a key local leader, or a regional leader seeking to foster a movement of disciple making. In the first session participants will be asked to form groups of 3 or 4—or on Zoom, be organised into the same “breakout rooms” for the duration of the equipping.

What resources do you need?

The host/facilitator needs to download (FREE) the Conversation Guide 1 and the videos FREE from this site.

Each participant will need: 

  1. A printed Conversation Guide 1: Multiplying Disciples—in which to write notes and plans,
  2. A supply of Discovery Bible Reading bookmarks and Discover Jesus starter Bibles (a compilation of Mark, John and Acts), and
  3. A copy of If You Can Eat … You Can Make Disciples (Signs 2018).

Participants will use their own Bibles, and most will also want to read Following Jesus (Signs 2017) and Messiah (Pacific Press 2003)—so it is a good plan for facilitators to have a supply available. All printed guides, bookmarks and books are available from the Adventist Book Centre Online (adventistbookcentre.com.au).
