Gather a growing group of individuals and ministry leaders across America who
(a) are devoted disciples of Jesus Christ, and
(b) who consider discipling a distinctive priority in their ministry.
Communicate collegially among and beyond our Love2020 affinity sphere colleagues.
Cultivate consensus regarding
(a) “right questions,” core issues, & key outcomes in discipling;
(b) best responses to those questions & issues; and
(c) major outcomes & strategies potentially enabled or enhanced through the DMS, such as recommending and/or developing disciple-focused resources most helpful in the context of their ministries.
Develop clear “next steps” and implement them flexibly, adapting to various situations as needed for greatest harmony and most significant impact in pleasing and honoring God
Pray for openness among Love2020 affinity sphere colleagues and others in ministry to discuss & collaborate on ways to enhance disciple-making impact across America.
Pray for wisdom, clarity, humility, and resoluteness among collaborators as we focus on right questions, best answers, core issues, and key outcomes.
Practical & powerful “Care/Share” ideas
Because disciple-being is our foundational platform for disciple-making:
Show Christ’s integrity: As you talk with others at home and at work this week, speak about issues with consistent, non-misleading truth—and grace.
Show Christ’s kindness: Forgive one specific person as you wish others would forgive you.
Show Christ’s humility: Invite another customer to get in line ahead of you at the store; give others the closest parking spaces.
Show Christ’s thankfulness: Visit, call, or write a card to a specific person this week, thanking them for a specific instance of their past or present positive influence on your life. (Visits, calls, and cards are much more of a gift to that person than texts or emails.)
Show Christ’s wisdom: Act this week in ways that show you understand the consequences of your choices.
