Getting Started in Disciple Making Movements
Even if You Are Busy, Don't Speak the Language Well and Have No Money
Busy, but not seeing lasting fruit?
Dissatisfied with your present level of impact?
Frustrated by traditional methods of discipleship that don’t seem effective?
Keep reading. This program is exactly what you need to move forward.
Quickly build a strong foundation and prepare to see hundreds (if not thousands!) of unreached people rapidly come in the Kingdom.
If you’re an ordinary disciple of Jesus, deeply committed to reaching the lost, or a full-time minister looking to have much a greater Kingdom impact, you already know you need to take steps of faith and obedience to move forward.
I’ll spare you the “preachy” tone.
No need to be a broken record and tell you that God is 100% committed to reaching the lost and healing their brokenness.
You are aware that if we want to see the transformation of communities, cities, spheres and people groups, we have to make disciples.
Those disciples then have to make more disciples…they must multiply. We need to see movements.
Here’s What You Might Not Know..
By starting a Disciple Making Movement you could shift from impacting hundreds of people to impacting thousands or tens of thousands, within just a few years.
Through Disciple Making Movements you can catalyze dramatic social change in people groups, cities or regions.
Every follower of Jesus is capable of starting a disciple-making group that will multiply and start other groups.
Even Though the Reasons to Start a Disciple-Making Movement are Obvious…
It isn’t as easy as it sounds. You will face very real spiritual opposition. It will be a major challenge to carve out time in your busy life to focus on evangelism and disciple-making activities. There will be times when the demands of life compete with the demands of the movement. People who don’t understand your vision will discourage you, and sometimes you will wonder if you will ever find that key person who will lead to the beginning of the change you’ve been dreaming to see in your area.
That is why you need both a guide and a community. A step by step plan for how to get started right, and a group of people to walk together with changes everything. Having peers and an experienced mentor to help you troubleshoot problems, be accountable, and stay on track while also inspiring you to dream big is really critical.
With these things in place,a movement can happen where you are! You’ll learn to share the gospel, lead people to Christ, start groups of disciples, and then train them to also start new groups. You’ll watch these disciples begin to radically impact their communities.
The 5 Biggest Reasons People Don’t End Up Multiplying Disciples and Launching Movements
- They are busy but don’t prioritize fruitful, Kingdom activities..
- Prayer isn’t a significant part of their lives and plan.
- Evangelism isn’t a lifestyle.
- There don’t have any friendly accountability.
- They over complicate discipleship.
- Discouragement or distractions knock them off course.
If any of this sounds familiar, you are in the right place. These things can be overcome. It takes a willingness to change, and an openess to doing things differently.
God chose you to make a difference in the world. His heart burns for the unreached. With a step by step plan, mentors and coaches to guide you, and peers to cheer you on and keep you accountable, a Disciple Making Movement in your area is more than possible.
Aaron joined the Getting Started in Disciple Making Movements Program last year. Before the course, he was a frustrated and discouraged believer. He longed to see something happen in his community, but didn’t know how to begin.
When we saw his name and location, we realized one of our experienced coaches lived only a few hours from him. Its seemed clear that God had been setting it for them to meet and begin to work together. Excited, Aaron started to meet with his new coach.
Anticipation grew as he watched the training videos, prayed, and began to write down his End Vision. Faith was rising in his heart.
The coach met with him and together they made specific goals related to the videos he'd watched and pdfs he’d been reading. Soon, Aaron was able to mobilize others in his community and build a team around his vision to reach his area.
Learning simple, reproducible evangelism skills, he started training his team and interested people. They began to abundantly share the gospel with a goal to reach every household in their county of about 50,000 people. Already, many have responded saying they are open to hear more! With the results they are starting to see, Aaron estimates about 10% are ready to respond. That would mean more than 5,000 people that say they are interested to hear more, give their lives to Jesus, or join a fellowship.
Aaron’s outlook has radically changed by learning more about DMMs in this program and through his assigned coach. Joining a community of like-minded people has made a radical difference and seeing a movement is no longer a distant dream. Now, it looks possible and do-able with God’s help.

If you are ready to finally multiply disciples and see abundant fruit, here’s how we will get you started on that journey.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned in my twenty-nine years of field experience making disciples among the unreached and packaged it into a clear and easy to understand process to begin your journey toward launching a disciple-making movement. Getting Started in Disciple Making Movements isn’t so much of a knowledge-based training where you will learn theories. Instead, it is a practical just-in-time training that will give you what you need to learn and do each step of the way.
Because I’ve walked this path before and know the obstacles and frustrations, I will walk with you step by step toward starting that first disciple-making group that will be ready to grow and multiply. You don’t need to repeat all the many mistakes I’ve made along the way, but can learn from what I’ve done both right and wrong and avoid the pitfalls most people fall into.
Like what I’m hoping to train you to do with your disciples, I make the disciple-making process simple and easy to understand. Everything you learn from me you will be able to easily teach to others.
