Episode 8: Unity or Division through DMM Approaches- Interview with Lee Wood



Some say that Disciple Making Movement and Church Planting Movement approaches create division. Others say DMM trainers attack the local church instead of building it up. How can those of us who are called to start movements be intentional about preserving unity with others in the Body of Christ who have different approaches from us, or who disagree with what God is asking us to do? Lee Wood, a movement practitioner from Florida, USA, shares his insights and practical tips on this critical topic.

Key Points from this episode:

  • The power of giving a Bible to someone
  • We take care of the depth, God will take care of the breadth
  • Pour deeply into a few who are willing to obey
  • We don’t pursue methodological idolatry.
  • Upon before Unto– the Holy Spirit comes upon us, so we can go unto the world.
  • We need to be the kind of disciples worth multiplying.
  • We can collaborate with everyone, everywhere, at some level.
  • Disciple-making is always relational before it is organizational.
  • Jesus’ commandment is to make disciples, not start lots of groups.
  • Stop doing things Jesus didn’t tell you to do
  • We need a going strategy and a growing strategy. The power of staying where we’ve been welcomed.

    Praise the Lord, my comment, when Jesus came to this world he stated clearly to say goodbye and preach the gospel to the world, if anyone is against us who’re ministering, preaching, giving hope to the hopless meaning we’re only doing the assignment of God, not our own but his own in Jesus’s Name Amen and Amen in Jesus name 🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤👍
