Before ascending to heaven, Jesus instructed his followers to “make disciples of all nations.” But what does this command actually entail? What does it look like for Christians to care for one another’s spiritual well-being and growth? In this introduction to the basics of discipling, veteran pastor and author Mark Dever uses biblical definitions and practical examples to show how Christians can help one another become more like Christ every day. The eighth volume in the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series, this short book explains how discipling should function in the context of the local church, teaching pastors and church leaders how to cultivate a culture of edification and growth in their congregations.

How did Jesus disciple? Discipleship is tough. To walk someone from no knowledge of Christ to deep, transforming knowledge of Him... that's a challenge. It's messy. It's full of setbacks. And it's critically important. In Discipling as Jesus Discipled, you will learn the seven things Jesus did in discipling the Twelve. Through a study of His prayer for them in John 17, you'll see that Jesus: Revealed God to them, Gave them God's Word, Prayed for them, Looked out for them, Sent them out, Died to Himself for them, Equipped them for God's glory. These tasks seem clear enough, but as you'll see from Jesus' ministry, they require strategy, stamina, and sacrifice. Using examples from the Gospels, Dann guides us in mimicking the Master, helping us to disciple as Jesus would. You will come away knowing more about how Christ came alongside His disciples and how He continues to come alongside us today. What is more, you will be equipped to impart your life to someone else by seeing Jesus more clearly.

Muslims who come to Christ face momentous spiritual, psychological and social obstacles that drive many to abandon their faith. Often conversion and discipleship are framed by individualistic Western models that do not acknowledge the communal cultural forces that constrain and shape new believers. Effective discipleship requires a more relational, holistic process of Christian identity development and spiritual formation in community. In this comprehensive resource, missiologist Don Little engages the toughest theoretical and practical challenges involved in discipling believers from Muslim backgrounds. He draws on New Testament principles, historical practices and interviews with seasoned disciplers ministering in a dozen countries across the Muslim world. Addressed here are key challenges that believers from Muslim backgrounds face, from suffering and persecution to spiritual warfare and oppression. Also included are implications for the role of disciplers in church planting among Muslims.

After 22 years of prayer, study, ministry observation, and seeking God's will through it all, the burden in my heart to teach disciples and raise-up Church leaders who are grounded in solid foundational principles has escalated into a powerful fervor. Therefore, my spirit has been compelled to put these principles into writing for the edification of the glory of the Lord for His kingdom. Many of these things have been taught in various forms and/or pieces. It has been my longing to put this to an organized, instructional tool that will firm up the believer's heart and mind and establish a solid foundation for disciples to build their calling upon, thereby launching the disciple's ministry for the purpose of accomplishing God's will for their lives. Like a drop of water spilled into a pool and rippling outward, it is my expectation that these teachings will ripple out into the world and change many lives.

Growing up as a US Navy dependant he lived all around North America, Hawaii and the Caribbean, finally settling in the Seattle, Washington area. During his early college life, he earned Ph.Ds in Psychology and Business Economics. While teaching and studying at different institutions, Doc continually sought for spiritual truth studying various religions and philosophies. Finally, through God's grace, he received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and became a born-again Christian in 1981. The Bible became his one and only source of truth. Desiring to have a complete and full relationship with Jesus Christ, he earned his third doctorate in Divinity/CHURCH LEADERSHIP. Through the love of Jesus Christ, Doc and his wife Jackie fulfill their call and commitment by helping the Church raise up disciples and training them to fulfill their ministry callings in Jesus Christ.

Dann Spader is a disciple-maker who has spent his adult life exploring what it means to take someone from being a seeker to making disciples themselves. Over 750,000 people in 80 countries have been trained to make disciples through organizations he has led. Through studying the life of Christ and His disciple-making methods, Dann developed 4 Chair Discipling, a simple picture for others to follow. Jesus’ last words on earth had a few very specific instructions: Go, make disciples, baptize, and teach. But what does that mean for us today? Well, it’s not easy. But it is simple. Teacher and leader Dann Spader explains disciple-making as a process of moving people through four chairs, from someone seeking to know more about Christ to someone who makes disciples themselves. Chair 1: Come and See (John 1:39) Chair 2: Follow Me (John 1:43) Chair 3: Become a Fisher of Men (Matthew 4:19) Chair 4: Go and Bear Fruit (John 15:16) In the process of His four-year ministry, Jesus realized that different people are at different stages of growth and development, and He works to challenge each of them to the next level. In 4 Chair Discipling, you’ll get a clear and simple picture of how to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and do the same thing.
