Effective Disciple Making

Posted by donna on October 7, 2013

Mentoring new believers

"Go and make disciples" Jesus (Math. 28:19)

A spiritual discipline that is waning in the modern church is that of intentional mentoring of newer or younger believers. This is especially true when one thinks about leadership development.  Far too much is left to chance or simply taken for granted.

The store shelves are filled with books and plans on discipleship. Yet, few of us are engaged in making disciples.

Though much is being done and great things are being accomplished, my question is always, at what cost?  “What can we do better?”

Intentional mentoring of disciples who are eager to follow Christ is of inestimable value to any Christian organization, especially the church. Jesus commands it because it is the essence of growing the Kingdom.

Here are some keys to effective discipling:

Disciple Making…

  1. Is built on quality of relationship. Without good relationships nothing positive happens.
  2. Begins with a commitment for those who mentor to be close to Jesus; engaging in spiritual disciplines.
  3. Starts by understanding the needs of the disciple.
  4. Follows a clear path of endeavour... we know where the relationship is taking us.
  5. Builds upon accomplished goals and measurable outcomes... it grows in its intensity.
  6. Stays the course and longs for growth.
  7. Creates the life of Jesus in the disciple ... not our life ... Jesus is the object of the task.
  8. Trains disciples to train other disciples who train other disciples, etc...

God bless you as you “go and make disciples,”
