Four Words for Every Stage of Church Planting and Church Life:

  1. Abiding – Ministry health and effectiveness flows from your personal abiding with Christ. Our first call is to intimacy with God.
  2. Discipling – Early church planting is really Disciple Planting. I’m sharing the gospel and leading one, two, three, a group, several groups into becoming a Disciple who Makes Disciples.
  3. Mobilizing – Groups of disciples should be mobilized to first make other disciples, then to form teams for the maturing of the body and continuing the mission.
  4. Building – Building systems, processes, teams to help mobilized disciples who are abiding in Christ to spread the gospel and make disciples in the whole region.

Which one is the biggest challenge for you and your church right now?
