Counter Intuitive Discipleship Values...

  • Go slow to go fast!
  • Outsiders raise up insiders - an inexperienced insider is more effective than a highly trained outsider
  • Focus on a few to reach many
  • Self-discovery learning in the Word is more powerful than instruction learning
  • Disciple people to conversion - don't wait to convert them before discipleship begins.
  • Dream big but build small
  • Group memory is greater than each individuals memory of what is learned -  discipleship happens best in groups rather than as individuals
  • Obedience is more important than knowledge
  • Give 80% of your discipling attention to 20% of your most focused and effective disciple makers
  • Start with creation then move to Christ - through the God story
  • Raise up leaders before they are ready - start with the torch in their hand, don't pass it to them later
  • Start small groups among existing social groups
  • Don't grow bigger groups, multiply more groups
  • Spend a long time discipling people but expect miraculous breakthroughs and acceleration!
