It is hard to deny that todayÆs world can seem apathetic toward Christians. Some may look down at their iPhones when we mention God, motion for the check when we bring up church, or casually change the subject when we talk about prayer. In a world full of people whose indifference is greater than their desire to know Christ, how can we dream of growing the church? In Contagious Disciple Making, David Watson and Paul Watson map out a simple method that has sparked an explosion of homegrown churches in the United States and around the world. A companion to Cityteam's two previous books, Miraculous Movements and The Father Glorified, Contagious Disciple Making details the method used by Cityteam disciple-makers. This distinctive process focuses on equipping spiritual leaders in communities where churches are planted. Unlike many evangelism and church-growth products that focus on quick results, contagious disciple-making takes time to cultivate spiritual leadership, resulting in lasting disciple-making movements. Through Contagious Disciple Making readers will come to understand that a strong and equipped leader will continue to grow the church long after church planters move on to the next church. Features include: Engagement tools for use in the field Practical techniques to equip others to make disciples

God's mission needs movement leaders. Jesus pioneered something completely new in human history—a dynamic missionary movement intent on reaching the world. His mission is as clear and as relevant today as in the days of the early church: to make disciples everywhere, baptizing them and teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded. But the potential of the church remains untapped. What does it take to lead movements that successfully carry out this mission? In Pioneering Movements, Steve Addison identifies what it takes to follow Jesus' example. Building on his previous books Movements That Change the World and What Jesus Started, he reveals the apostolic qualities and behaviors of biblical, historical, and contemporary pioneers who can guide church and ministry leaders today.

This book is intended to give Christians who desires to have a close, personal, and even contagious relationship with Christ an understanding of how that happens. Many faithful Christians attend church and live very moral lives yet have not understood how they can be a part of the disciple making process. As a result, few ever lead another into a personal relationship with Christ. With-in my personal story, every Christian who desires to obediently follow the command of Christ in His Great commission can find a plan to assist them in getting started and to guide them in becoming a disciple maker. The Bible teaches us that Jesus developed a close, personal relationship with a handful of common, hardworking, God-fearing men that He found to be trustworthy and teachable. After more than a year and a half of training them for the task of evangelizing the world, He gave them one instruction: Go make disciples. In no way did Jesus intend this assignment to be taken as an individual challenge. He knew that the task of making disciples would require them to go, minister, and grow future disciples together. Disciples from all walks of life must learn to see God's Kingdom all around them here and now and choose to join Christ in His desire to make disciples and have a relationship with all God's children.
