5 Questions to Assess Your Disciple Making Johan Verster By Johan Verster June 27, 2018
Acts 29 - A diverse, global family of church-planting churches

Disciple Making is one of the eleven competencies that Acts 29 considers essential when assessing church planters. You can explore the Competencies further on the Acts 29 Competencies page.

CORE IDEA

Jesus said: ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’ Matthew 28:18-20. This is our mandate – to make disciples. A planter’s ability to set a culture of discipleship in everyday life will have a significant impact on the long-term health of a church plant.

 

SELF-ASSESSMENT QUESTIONS

  1. Is the gospel central in your efforts to both make, and mature disciples?
  2. Is your discipleship of others holistic, i.e. are you making disciples by helping others to listen to Jesus, and love others?
  3. Would Dietrich Bonhoeffer have accused you of being a dispenser of “cheap grace”? (See eBook on Disciple Making)
  4. What place does ‘the Church’ (local and global) hold in your efforts to obey the Great Commission?
  5. Where would you plot your ‘cultural engagement’ on the spectrum between ‘total separation’ and ‘total assimilation’?
