Disciple Making Movements, or DMMs, are a mission and church multiplication paradigm that has gained credibility in recent years. For most who pursue them, they are more than a strategy though. They are a passion. A desperate sense of urgency to see lost people come to know Christ drives them to the costly pursuit of rapidly multiplying groups of disciples in their area.
Movement practitioners are willing to face persecution from within and without, and to spend much time on their knees. Mountain tops of breakthrough and valleys of discouragement are all part of the DMM journey.
This week, I thought I’d take a break from the series I’ve been writing about on leadership in a DMM, and share instead a video clip from a recent interview by a friend and mentor in movements- Uncle Victor. In the clip, he asks how I got started in this journey.
For those who prefer to read, below the video is a transcript. I pray my story encourages you.
Continue to persevere step by step as you and God are writing your own story. Keep walking your DMM journey toward the release of a movement. It may have as many twists and turns as my journey has also had, but the destination is well worth the sacrifice!
