Four Words for Every Stage of Church Planting and Church Life:
- Abiding – Ministry health and effectiveness flows from your personal abiding with Christ. Our first call is to intimacy with God.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
