1 John 2:6

"Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did."


Jesus modeled for us in scripture life and ministry! He showed us the MISSION, He was the MODEL, and He gave us the METHODS on how to make disciples in John 17. Jesus lived fully God and fully man. He masked his deity to live full humanity.

A majority of churches in America are struggling to make disciples and multiply. We are now in a day where we can no longer rely on just programs or preaching to make disciples that reproduce. Like Jesus helps you get back to scripture by studying Jesus' life and ministry and how He made disciples. He laid out a pattern and modeled disciple-making for us to follow. We can emulate His life and build movements of multiplication. That's what this resource is all about.

8. What's the best way to use this in our ministry?

We recommend that you preach it, discuss it in small groups, and have people study on their own in tandem. We provide those three layers for you. Sermon guides, discussion guides and the books themselves for personal study. This resource was designed to be integrated into any church or ministry.
