    The Simplest Way to Develop Disciple Making Coaches

    The Simplest Way to Develop Disciple Making Coaches

    You can help other people become coaches in disciple making through a habit you've probably heard about—the prayer calendar!  It's a way to start small and show that anyone can make disciples who make disciples. Check out this video on what the prayer calendar is. 
     


    So how does this simple way of praying for people every day develop coaches? It helps people develop the skills necessary to do basic leadership development. If you're multiplying your calendar, you're learning the skills of celebration-based accountability, problem-solving, and multiplication; how can I help you help someone else do something? 
     


    Choose 2-5 people to train in the prayer calendar and call them up each week to see how it's going. Listen to this episode to learn more! 
     


    In part 2, we talk about how this kind of structure causes organic growth.

    Shortcuts That Short Circuit Movement (Part 1)

    Shortcuts That Short Circuit Movement (Part 1)

    We all want to see a disciple making movement happen, but sometimes it's hard to wait for it! That's why we sometimes modify or skip steps in the process of disciple making. We could skip this Discovery Bible Study question, jump to that part of Scripture, or invite those people before they're ready. Today's episode addresses the common shortcuts that we as disciple makers easily fall into and why it's a bad idea to take them. 
     
    If you seem to be coming up short in your disciple making, it could be because you're taking shortcuts. We've all been there. Listen to this episode to figure out how to avoid them or fix them if you've already taken them! Part 2 goes deeper into what to do if you've already taken some shortcuts.

    DMC Changes DNA (Part 1)

    DMC Changes DNA (Part 1)

    You've heard us talk about Disciple Making Communities—groups of Christians on a mission to make disciples together. So why are we adding that on top of things like the Discovery Bible Study process? Isn't that enough to see movement? Well the thing is, we're dealing with a culture that has a broken DNA (or is lacking habits) for fulfilling the Great Commission. We need to build them. That's why something like a Disciple Making Community (DMC) exists. 
    A DMC instills the habits of prayer, obedience to the Word, sharing with others, fellowship, multiplication, and more. But how do these all fit together and play into the grander scheme of a movement? Find out in today's CDM Podcast! 
    In part 2, we continue on the topic of DNA, answering the questions of 1) How do you guide your group towards your success? 2) How long do you do a DMC? 3) When do you have others start DMCs? And 4) Is it possible for people to not be ready for a DMC?

    The Case for Creation to Christ (Part 1)

    The Case for Creation to Christ (Part 1)

    When you open a book, where do you start? At the beginning! When you are helping someone discover God, where do you start? Today's podcast is about why we use the Creation to Christ Scripture list in a Discovery Bible Study. It's 26 passages that begins in Genesis and ends with Jesus.
     
    Many times we start with Jesus as we're introducing someone to the Word of God. But most people don't know who Jesus is or why his death and resurrection are necessary.  Learn how to start a strong foundation with those you're discipling that can lead to a movement by listening today! 
     


    In part 2, we answer these questions: 


    Can I break up long passages?


    Can I add passages?


    Are there other lists?


    Which list do I use for Christians?

So inspiring!

I found the Contagious Disciple Making Podcast late in 2019. I recently subscribed to the premium content and am loving it! I feel inspired, encouraged and equipped each time I listen to a podcast they put out. I love their emphasis on prayer and using Spirit led Bible stories in conversation with those far from Christ. Keep it up guys!

Newest, cutting-edge stream of DMM training

How do we apply the principles from the amazing movements happening in Africa and Asia? What about for a Western context? This podcast answers those questions. Get super practical, day-to-day tips and strategies on how to make disciples wherever you are, no matter who you are. The Great Commission never seemed more doable.
