Cultivate Disciplemaking

Are you a pastor or church staff member? 

Are you a disciplemaker?

Cultivate Disciplemaking

Through God's glorious design tiny acorns become mighty oaks, which produce and create more mighty oaks. The same is true for disciples of Jesus. Through God's design, we are called to grow from acorns to mighty oaks planted for His glory! All Christians are called to make an impact on those around them for the glory of God. As with acorns, Christians have the potential of experiencing a breakthrough of exponential growth as their roots become established.

Based on hundreds of conversations with church leaders we have found that very few churches have implemented a well-thought-out process for making disciples who make disciples. Disciplemaking denotes a process of growing as a disciple which leads to investing in others for the purpose of making more disciples. Effective disciplemaking is always relationally driven, based on the model of Jesus as He intentionally invested in deep relationships with His disciples. In Cultivate Disciplemaking you will see how God is forming us in Christ to have maximum impact on the nations, our neighbors, and the next generation.

"There are two great areas of failure in the American church that have led to generational decline: our failure to disciple our people, and our failure to make disciples who make disciples. In Cultivate Disciplemaking, Kevin and Randy address both of these issues by laying down a process for leading believers to become disciples and then equipping them to make more disciples."

Dr. Scott Guffin,

Executive Director of Christian Ministry,

Samford University

"Kevin Blackwell and Randy Norris have given the church a great gift in Cultivating Disciplemaking. Not only do they lay out a simple yet effective process and pathway to make disciples, they encourage and equip readers along the way. Disciplemaking is the command and commission of Jesus and Kevin and Randy pull back the curtain to let us see how God is using their church to fulfill the Great Commission (and very effectively I might add!)"

An Amazon Review

"This book is a GREAT resource for understanding what it means to make disciples for Christ, and how to implement a biblical disciple-making strategy in your life, ministry, and church. I don’t think any other disciple-making book captures and explains this biblical practice the way Blackwell and Norris do."
