Description

A Practical Guide to Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Disciple-Making in Any Church

Over the last few decades American churches have produced plenty of converts but not as many mature believers. Studies show the majority of Christians don't even understand the basics of faith. But how do you tackle such a big problem?

Replicate shows church leaders how to make disciples who make disciples and get the rest of your church on board as well. This one-on-one relational ministry is how Jesus laid the foundation for His church that is still growing today, and it's how we continue the work in our own local congregations. Learn the five marks of a healthy disciple-making church, how to influence culture, uproot misconceptions of the church and the gospel, and change your church and community. No more focusing on mere numbers, it's time to grow in maturity and through multiplication.

Disciple-making requires leading people to Jesus and teaching them to be like Him--are you doing both?

Most churches are eager to grow. Yet they rarely have a plan to help people become the kind of believers who multiply their lives. This is the problem pastors Robby Gallaty and Chris Swain have encountered throughout their ministry experiences. In Replicate, they outline how churches can establish and execute a strategy that will develop a vibrant culture that grows disciples who make disciples. You'll learn how to identify common obstacles that prevent disciple-making from happening and how to launch, lead, and replicate healthy disciple-making groups. This comprehensive guide provides the strategies and passion you need to help your church--both leaders and laypeople alike--fulfill the Great Commission and see your ministry multiply.
