Useful News & Tips
(click on the hyperlinked titles below to read the entire article)

There are growing numbers of Christians throughout North America seeking to learn how to effectively make disciples who make disciple-making disciples (2 Tim. 2:2). Most major cities have at least a small network of individuals seeking to put DMM principles to work. Many churches, especially after our year of COVID, are reorienting their priorities and “trying this DMM thing out.” This is a good thing and, I believe, a God thing.

And yet, even with great effort and great commitment by a great number of people, we are seeing few if any true disciple-making movements here in North America. We are seeing some multiplying of congregations who focus on planting other churches. This shows good addition-growth but nothing like the exponential explosion of new disciple-making believers you see in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

We have church buildings in almost every neighborhood and yet there seems to be little transformative impact on the communities around them. The majority of people in this nation are sliding ever deeper into moral depravity and the church, for decades now, has seemed impotent to stop that slide. We all need to humbly learn what God is doing in these Disciple Making Movements around the world and, more specifically, understand what God wants us to do about what we learn.

Yesterday, I posted reflections on my fortieth anniversary of ministry. I continue that list today by noting times when I’ve thought about quitting . . . and then explaining why I’ve never done that.
