Disciple-making is not a program. . .it’s a lifestyle.
This is a big truth. Jesus said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Clearly, this was no call to join a discipleship program but an invitation to a lifestyle of disciple-making. According to Jesus, this lifestyle is the supreme purpose of every believer. It’s the “greater work” He has called us to do—anytime and anywhere.
With no big buildings or budgets, Jesus launched a disciple-making movement that exploded upon the world. In comparison, the church today has discipleship programs but few disciple-making people.
In The Greater Work, Dr. Bill Wilks will walk us through the six practices of disciple-making that Jesus modeled for us with His discipleship group. Many books talk about how to run discipleship programs, but the goal of this book is to teach you how to actually make disciples who make disciples.
