A fresh wave of regulations and lock-down orders has hit many nations. It can feel discouraging. How do we continue our disciple making efforts in times like these? A week or so ago, I interviewed a leader from South Asia who recently tried something new. His on-line simple church efforts rapidly multiplied. They spilled over to many in-person groups also beginning across the region.
What stood out as you watched?
Here are a few things to consider:
- when we do what we CAN do, God does what we CANNOT.
- creativity and innovative efforts led to fruitfulness.
- the standstill was not accepted but they sought God for solutions.
- the mission to start movements wasn’t hindered but advanced because of the difficulties.
Learn more about how to start a Disciple Making Movement and on-line simple church groups that multiply in the course Getting Started in Disciple Making Movements. A new cohort will open in early January.
Refuse to stop making disciples and obeying Christ’s command. No matter what comes by virus, war, or persecution we continue to obey. Ask God for new and creative ways to move forward in this time. He promises to guide as you seek His face.
