An explosion of discipleship
‘God, I can’t plant churches anymore. I didn’t sign on to love people, train people, and get them killed.’ pxi
God answered David Watson’s prayer with a Church Planting Movement that saw 80,000 churches planted among a people group in Asia. In this challenging book, David and his son, Paul, outline the guiding principles and practices which they believe lead to Disciple Making Movements. They define this to mean sustainable movements of disciples making disciples, ideally eventually leading to Church Planting Movements.
These movements can result in explosive growth, but the authors warn that this is not because it is a quick process — far from it. Instead, disciple making requires long term investment in people, as they make clear throughout the book.
