You can make a positive difference in your church.

Everyone wants to go to a church with programs that have a positive impact on their lives--programs designed with them in mind. It may come as a surprise in our me-centered culture, but the church does not exist to meet our needs as churchgoers. Instead, we each need to grow as a disciple.

Many understand discipleship as a one-on-one relationship with a mentor that takes place with a select few in the church. However, Jesus's mandate in Matthew 28:19-20 is that the church make disciples of all its people, not just a select few. In Strategic Disciple Making, veteran church consultant Aubrey Malphurs teaches churches a process that implements the biblical teaching on discipleship in a simple but practical way as the centerpiece of their ministries.

If you're tired of business as usual at your church and want to make a positive difference, take the plunge into genuine discipleship with a preeminent teacher on the subject.

His clear analysis of what a disciple is, and how a church can make one, is a welcome addition to the literature on this topic."--Gary L. McIntosh, professor, Christian Ministry & Leadership, Talbot School of Theology

"In Strategic Disciple Making, Aubrey Malphurs has done it again. He provides us with a concise yet comprehensive examination of this vital component of building believers. Strategic Disciple Making is a must-read."--Steve Stroope, lead pastor, Lake Pointe Church, Rockwall, Texas
