Episode 13: Advantages of Group Discipleship vs. Individual Disciplemaking



Individual decisions for Christ have been emphasized in most evangelism strategies. What if instead of only seeking to bring individuals to Jesus, you focused on groups of people deciding together to become His followers. In this episode, Cynthia Anderson, DMM trainer and coach shares the many advantages of shifting our paradigm toward group discipleship vs. individual discipleship.

Key Points from this episode:

  • Jesus often called groups of people to follow Him together.
  • In the book of Acts, the vast majority of times we see people decide to become disciples they are deciding this in groups.
  • When we are making decisions together with others, we are willing to take bigger risks. Following Jesus is a big decision involving major life changes. We increase “stickiness” of decisions when we encourage people to involve others in their natural affinity groups.
