Descrizione prodotto


It is hard to deny that today's 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


David Watson serves the global church through Cityteam Ministries as the VP for Global Disciple-Making. He is also actively involved in mentoring the next generation of Disciple-Making strategists. Since 1989, Watson has been involved with movements that have seen 100,000 churches started, and he has trained more than 30,000 leaders from 167 nations.

5.0 su 5 stelle Fuel for a Second Reformation 17 dicembre 2014
Di Robby Butler - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
WARNING: If you want to stay comfortably involved in a local church without directly and personally engaging and impacting the lost, don't read this book.

NEARLY 500 years after Martin Luther launched the Protestant reformation, the Church which Jesus Christ promised to build is undergoing another historic reformation:
- from "gathering spectators" to "training and equipping disciples to reproduce," and
- from "expert-based ministry" to "movements that rely on the Holy Spirit's readiness to teach new and pre-believers from God's Word." (See my article "Introducing... '4X4 Movement Starts'" in the Mar/Apr 2014 issue of "Mission Frontiers.")

The pioneering work David and Paul report on in Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Journey of Discovery joins Steve Smith's T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution: The Story Behind the World's Fastest Growing Church Planting Movement and How it Can Happen in Your Community! as an ESSENTIAL REFERENCE for all those led to participate in this reformation.

One veteran minister to international students just wrote me regarding the power he has personally seen in the DISCOVERY study approach developed and popularized by David and Paul, and detailed in Chapter 15 of this book:


For the past 18 months we have trained students to FACILITATE discovery Bible studies for seekers rather than "LEAD" traditional Bible studies. Instead of training our students as experts who impart knowledge, we now train them to ask simple questions which depend on the Holy Spirit's readiness to teach the non-believer from God's Word.

I have seen the fruit of this approach, and recommend it for any believer eager to get unsaved friends/relatives into God's Word. It is great to see seekers receive powerful insights from the Word WITHOUT being spoon-fed. And they will REMEMBER what they discover far longer than what I can tell them.


Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Journey of Discovery covers the nuts, bolts, history and philosophy of what has now become a staple of every discipling movement I know. Before reading this book I didn't understand the gaps in my own understanding, and this left me still FRUSTRATED as a researcher and theoretician wanting to apply these things personally in my local context. I still struggle with busyness, but this book is helping me press ahead with greater confidence.

Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Journey of Discovery advances our understanding in many ways, perhaps most importantly pointing out that movements:
- DON'T result from getting a lot of people doing the same THING, but
- DO come from going deep with Jesus and a few others in ways that RAPIDLY reproduce.

As revealed in the Contents below, this book covers many essential topics.
For me personally the most significant portions of this book are:

- how to fuel a movement of PRAYER (as an essential foundation for a discipling movement), and

- how to develop an ENGAGEMENT strategy suitable for the local context.

( I hope soon to post a distillation of the chapter on prayer on the "Mission Frontiers blog.")

Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Journey of Discovery is helpfully broken into two sections:

- The PHILOSOPHY, or "Mind-set of a Disciple-Maker"
This will be especially useful for those new to the topic, but still full of valuable insights for those familiar with experience in multiplying disciples.

- The MECHANICS, or "Practices of a Disciple-Maker."
This is especially helpful for those already engaging in reproducing discipleship to refine their efforts to overcome obstacles and experience more fruit.

Here is a slight condensation of the table of contents:
- Disciple-Makers Embrace Lessons Taught by Failure
- Disciple-Makers Deculturalize, Not Contextualize, the Gospel
- Disciple-Makers Plant the Gospel Rather than Reproduce Their Religion
- Disciple-Makers Recognize the Limitations of Branded Christianity
- Disciple-Makers Adapt the Strategy for Making Disciples to the Structure of the Community
- Disciple-Makers Limit the Negative Influence of their Culture and Religious Experience
- Disciple-Makers Understand the Importance of Obedience
- Disciple-Makers Make Disciples, Not Converts
- Disciple-Makers Practice the Priesthood of the Believer

- Think Strategically and Tactically About Disciple-Making
- Be a Disciple Who Makes Disciples
- Model and Multiply Prayer
- Engage Lost People
- Seek Out Persons of Peace
- Initiate Discovery Groups
- Establish Churches
- Cultivate Leadership
- Practice Mentoring

Note: DON'T skip the Introduction. It tells David's compelling story of how God worked through David's utter FAILURE--seeing his early converts martyred (for using a style of evangelism too aggressive for the context) and then being kicked out of the country, and how this led to extended time with the Lord--seeking and receiving an approach that would bear multiplying fruit, FUELING movements on every inhabited continent.

About me: Over the past five years I have studied everything I could about reproducing discipleship (church-planting and discipling movements). I have met and attended training by Victor Choudhrie, Steve Smith and David and Paul Watson, and been involved with getting each of their materials available free on-line through "Mission Frontiers" magazine.

I was invited to offer an endorsement for an early version of this book, but did NOT receive a copy in exchange for this review.

In fact, as soon as Contagious Disciple Making: Leading Others on a Journey of Discovery was released I bought my own copy of the final version, and am now working on a deal to enable MISSIONARIES and MOBILIZERS to get discounted copies for their ministry networks. (If that's you, email me through the email on my "reviewer" link.)

I was put off by some of the material in the opening chapters relating to pastors in the US. Many of us have realized the need for change here, but getting it done makes turning aircraft carriers in the harbor look easy. BUT, I plowed through and was very glad I did. There is a wealth of information here. You must read it several times to get the good. This is church-planting done God's way. Make disciples FIRST and let God build the churches. One of my first reactions was: Turning people lose with Scripture and no one or nothing to teach them what it means every week will surely produce heresy. Wrong. Teach them to turn to the Bible as their authority and the Spirit will lead them. Really. If you think Sunday School and pew-warming has produced mature, functioning disciples, take a closer look at the average church member. Could he/she reproduce more believers, and, if they did, what would those new believers look like? What kind of church would they reproduce? From the very start make Scripture the authority, not a personality or an organizaton. Teach even pre-converts to be self-feeders who rely on the Bible alone for God's will. Teach people to OBEY the Word rather than accumulate knowledge ABOUT the Word. We need this in America. There are not enough trained people and conventional churches to get the job done. This way of forming disciple-making movements has changed what I see in the Bible. It is there, but I didn't see it clearly because . . . . . you tend to interpret what you read by what you've already experienced. After CDM, you'll never read Acts the same way again. This gets people off their duffs to DO the Word. Naturally, so to speak. In this day of organic everything, this is the real deal. I've been looking for this for 35 years, and it was right under my nose all the time in the New Testament. Just took practitioners like the Watsons to point out what was old to get the job done new. Check out the companion books by Trousdale and Robertson. Read and reread to get the most out of this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle "Be offended, but choose to love more..." 27 marzo 2017
Di VICKI D VANDENBERG - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is from the book. It is so well said.

I (Paul) once found an interesting silo online. A woman in the silo followed me on Twitter because she liked the way I talked about my family. As I read her blog, I realized she was a witch and was part of a community of porn stars, strippers, and people with various levels of involvement in the occult. The woman used foul language throughout her blog. Everything was pretty offensive. Some people say that those actively seeking to engage lost communities should “choose to not get offended.” We understand the sentiment, but some things really are offensive. They offend God and they offend us. So, not getting offended is really not an option. So what do we do with our offense? How would Jesus want us to respond? One day, as I was praying, God showed me something. Jesus tolerated being in the same room with people who were unholy by nature. He ate with them, talked with them, and worshiped alongside them. If we really believe that Jesus and God are one and the same, then we have to believe Jesus feels the same way about sin that God does. And God’s stance on the matter is pretty clear: He hates sin. He cannot tolerate its presence. Sin results in death, and sinful beings cannot look upon the face of God and live. Jesus was the sum total of all that is holy and terribly magnificent. And yet He ate with whores and tax collectors (read: traitors). He sat at the table with Pharisees, religious hypocrites consumed with self-righteousness. He loved Judas, the man who betrayed Him. He restored Peter, the man who denied Him. He drank from the Samaritan woman’s cup, which was forbidden for Jewish men at the time. He allowed Himself to be arrested, beaten, and crucified. And Jesus—100 percent God—did not destroy anyone with holy fire. Although their presence offended Him, He chose to give up His right to be offended. Why? Love. Love caused Him to suspend His right to be offended so that sinners could experience Him. Love is the reason He still suspends offense. He still wants us to experience Him. If you choose to work with people who do not follow Christ, you will be offended. If you choose to walk among the lost, you will see, hear, and read things that make your blood boil. But you have to love people more than you are offended if you want them to have the slightest chance of experiencing Christ’s love. We offend Christ every time we choose our way instead of His. That is, we offend Him every day. God’s love is the only thing that saves us from destruction. So, we allow ourselves to be offended as well. We choose, however, to love people enough that our offense fades in comparison to the love we have for them and the desire we have to see them fall in love with Jesus.

5.0 su 5 stelle Finally! 22 dicembre 2014
Di geoffrey - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is not for the "missionary" nor the full time "Christian" worker. This book is for everyone, especially the so called "laity". Six years ago I heard the principles in this book in spoken form and have been waiting ever since for it to be put to print. Finally! The beautiful thing about the principles in this book are that they aren't dense or difficult. They're just real and unsurprisingly biblical. Don't just enjoy it. Do yourself, your family, your neighbor, and your nation a favor and put the principles in this book into action!

Thanks David. Thanks Paul.

5.0 su 5 stelle relevant now 18 dicembre 2014
Di Patrick R. Watters - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Good stuff; challenging and relevant NOW! And accessible as well, no excuses.
An overarching theme I've found refreshing here is that of "being" versus "doing" in discipleship. Not focusing on a particular program or method (think religion), but engaging the people and culture; hearing them first, truly listening. Then, being Christ in their midst with love and compassion. Another thing I've sadly noted with other books and "programs" is the tendency to create a "new language" or lingo, which creates an exclusive character to the particular program, instead of an all embracing Gospel message.I know what you're all thinking, "Oh great, another book, another program on discieship!" But this "collection" of experiences may (will?) surprise you! I've read just about every good book on discipleship I could over the last 20 years, this one is very different, and gives us insight as to how and why the Church is exploding in third world countries from Latin America to Africa. Give it a look if you're serious about discipleship, following and obeying Jesus. }:-
