Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker, 20th Anniversary Edition
When Jesus called his disciples he embraced fishermen and tax collectors and turned them into some of the most influential men to ever live. Can modern church leaders empower regular people to meet their potential as servants of God?
The standard resource in disciplemaking for over twenty years, Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker outlines Christ's methods in training his twelve disciples and presents a biblical pattern that emulates Christ's model for reaching the lost. This updated edition includes new insights from the author's twenty years of helping churches make disciples from ordinary church members.

"So many churches today are experiencing spiritual coronaries because they place all their effort on "going to church" and "doing church" but not "being the church." Bill Hull shows not only why but how to place discipling at the heart of the church's cardiovascular system to develop missional communities of faith. I love this book because it puts some spiritual teeth back into why disciple-making is the purpose of the church and the task of any spiritual leader."-Randall K. Knutson, Church Resource Ministries
"Bill Hull challenges our notions of who makes disciples, how long it takes, the learning process, and the end result. This book wonderfully shows how open and loving relationships were at the core of Jesus' own disciplemaking while He walked this earth, and how they are still key as He makes disciples today. His understanding is a needed voice to hear in doing ministry in the 21st century, especially for those who want to reach our nation and the nations."-Alan Andrews, president, U.S. Navigators
"Bill Hull's classic work on discipleship is as relevant today as it was twenty years ago. We want to disciple, but we need a plan, a roadmap, a guide. This is it!"-Jerry E. White, Ph.D., president, The Navigators
"Bill Hull is one of the most important contemporary voices to challenge the church to stay true to Jesus' Great Commission. I am delighted that with this twentieth anniversary edition of Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker, Bill's influence will expand to the next generation of the church. In this book Bill articulates a proven method of equipping leaders who will follow Jesus' original pattern in preparing the Twelve for their leadership role in the early church. As the church around the world unites to 'make disciples of all the nations,' Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker will be an important roadmap that will keep us all true to Jesus' vision."-Michael J. Wilkins, dean of faculty and professor of New Testament Language and Literature,Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
