On churchleaders.com, Bobby Harrington asks ten disciple-making questions for churches in an article entitled 10 Disciple-Making Questions You Need to Ask. I encourage you to read the entire article. Many good questions are in his list:
- How does our church define discipleship?
- What does a disciple look like?
- Do we have an intentional process of discipleship?
- Does our church know this process?
- How does this process relate to the purpose of the church?
- Has our church prioritized distinct practices that relate to the discipleship process?
- Does our church practice the principle of abandonment based on the idea that activity doesn’t always mean productivity?
- How does our church measure maturity?
- How does our community describe our church?
- Do our church families spend more planned time in a week at church with each other or in the community with non-believers?
Gather a team to start the conversation, assessment, and planning. Pray. Start small. Make disciples!
