Do you want to make disciples? That is fantastic! Jesus’ plan is that all disciples make disciples.
Do you have someone in mind?
Disciple-making is a process of walking with people as they come to faith in Jesus and then continuing to walk with them as they grow to Christian maturity.
If you have someone in mind, let us suggest some steps you might take.
1. Go to “The Mission Sequence” (Link below). Use this as the platform for your disciple-making.
Identify what you have already done with this person.
Are there some steps that you have skipped? is it important to concentrate on them now?
2. Identify the next step.
Follow the link on the Mission Sequence page for more information on that step.

Sometimes analogies help us to understand the principles. in fact, sometimes we realise that we already know how to do it. We have been using the same principles in another context.
