Pastors, church leaders, and church planters have many tasks. They teach, preach, encourage, counsel, give pastoral advice, and generally build up the church. Yet, most would agree the primary purpose of the church is to make disciples, who are disciple-makers, that reproduce more disciples-makers!
But, how are we doing in terms of the primary purpose of the church?
Recently, Exponential and Discipleship.org released a “National Study on Disciple Making Churches in the USA.” So, what are the results of this study? There are many important learnings from this national study on the state of disciple making cultures in our nation. Here are some of the key findings:
- Fewer than 5% of churches in the U.S. have a reproducing disciple making culture
- No churches in the study reflect viral-like disciple making movement
- Churches lack common definitions for basic terms such as “discipleship,” “disciple,” and “disciple making”
Want to learn more and discover how the finding of these research impact your church and your own leadership?
Join us on March 26th at 4:00pm ET / 1:00p PT for a FREE Webinar with Bobby Harrington, Executive Director at Discipleship.org and Todd Wilson, founder and CEO of Exponential as they discuss the findings from this national study and implications for the future of disciple making in the U.S. church.
