Making Disciple Makers
“The core question of effectiveness — the question that ultimately matters — is whether the people who are getting saved are being conformed to the likeness of Christ. Are we making mature disciples of Jesus who are not only able to withstand the culture but are also making disciples of Jesus themselves?”
Jim Putman, Founder and Senior Pastor of Real Life Ministries
Dr. Bobby Harrington is the co-founder (with Todd Wilson) of and executive director of Discipleship.org, a national ministry that advocates for Jesus' style of disciple making and hosts a national forum on disciple making. He is the founding and lead pastor of Harpeth Christian Church. He has trained hundreds of church planters and coaches of church planters (with Stadia) and he has authored multiple books on discipleship, including DiscipleShift (with Jim Putman), Dedicated, Discipleship that Fits (with Alex Absalom) and, most recently,The Disciple Maker's Handbook (with Josh Patrick).
Bill Hull has spent his adult life as a discipleship evangelist. His twenty years as a local church pastor and more than twenty books on the subject testify to his commitment. Bill believes that the church faces a very practical problem, we keep trying to reach the world without first making disciples. We are preaching a gospel that separates conversion from discipleship. When this happens, we make disciples who don't believe in discipleship. The solution is found in rebuilding a gospel that embraces discipleship. Because the gospel we believe in determines the kind of disciples we make. This problem and its solution are addressed in Bill's newest work, Conversion & Discipleship: You Can't Have One without the Other.
Jim Putman is one of the leading voices on disciple making today. He is the founder and senior pastor of Real Life Ministries in Post Falls, Idaho. Real Life was launched with a commitment to discipleship and the model of discipleship Jesus practiced, which is called, "Relational Discipleship." The church drew national attention for its dramatic growth and then they starting planting churches that also had a high impact. This effectiveness led Jim to co-found and serve as a visionary leader with the Relational Discipleship Network, a network of like minded churches in the USA and beyond.
Ben is married to Joni and they have five children. He is the senior pastor of Cypress Community Church in Salinas, California, and a cohort leader with The Bonhoeffer Project. The Bonhoeffer Project is committed to creating disciple-making movements in local ministry contexts. Ben recently published a book with his good friend, Bill Hull, entitled The Discipleship Gospel: What Jesus Preached - We Must Follow.
