Imagine the conversation at your church if someone announced that for the next three years, your congregation would see 5,000 people come to faith in Christ…each year?
Maybe your church dreams and plans at that scale. But I would guess that most of us wouldn’t quite know what to do with that vision!
It would be exciting, wouldn’t it?
To see that many people find new and eternal life in Jesus Christ. And that they were being discipled to be effective disciple-makers too.
Samuel lives in Ethiopia and was trained by Global Disciples to equip and multiply disciples.
For three years now, he and his church network have been training and sending out disciple-makers and church planters.
Samuel came to Christ as a teenager and saw his whole family—including 7 brothers and 1 sister—put their faith in Jesus. Since age 19, he has served in the church.
He said, “We had a good ministry going but it was not as strong as it is now with our Global Disciples training. In only 3 years, we have sent out 52 disciple-makers and church planters. In our network, almost all our leaders were trained by Global Disciples, and as a result, we’re reaching out more.”
One strategy they use is to send teams from the discipleship training out to help and support the church planters in their new communities.
As part of their outreach, they join the church planter in sharing the Good News, discipling new believers, helping with baptism, and serving in any other activities to equip and build up that newly-planted fellowship. It’s a great way to encourage a church planter—and be about the business of multiplying disciples at the same time.
In just three years, Samuel reported, “About 16,070 people have been reached with the Gospel and come to know Jesus. We’ve started 8 new churches.” That’s over 5,000 people a year making decisions to follow Jesus Christ!
What God is doing in Ethiopia, He can do anywhere. And He uses wholehearted disciples of Jesus who share the Good News of the Savior. You can do it—and so can I!
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
