Leadership and Disciplemaking Tools
Why is Intentional Disciplemaking Important?
"Discipleship does not happen simply because a church exists...
It occurs when there is an intentional and strategic thrust to facilitate spiritual maturity,” states, George Barna, in his book Growing True Disciples (p 29). “Almost every church in our country has some type of discipleship program or set of activities. Stunningly few churches have a church of disciples” (p21). “If we hope to make a significant difference in the lives of individuals and in the nation’s culture, then we must increase our intentionality, our intensity and improve our strategies” (p63).
