Discipleship: What Jesus Wants the Church to Do

What part does discipleship play in the Great Commission? What should be the goal of the church? What is Jesus’ priority in terms of the church’s task? Many evangelicals would answer using the word “evangelism.” That was clearly Jesus’ passion, after all. But DNA co-founder, Dr. Bob Moffitt, suggests this

Transformation: From the Inside Out

Transformation is God’s ultimate aim in creation. Yes, that includes people from every nation coming to a saving faith in Christ. It requires new churches being planted. Hungry people fed. These are all important, but they are not God’s ultimate aim. They should be viewed as essential “parts,” not ends.

The CHURCH: A New Way to Promote What is Real

Ken Myers, who writes at Mars Hill Audio, is a leading voice calling the church to truly be the church, living and serving the nation so that its very culture is transformed. We have quoted Ken before. Ken recently posted a penetrating three-minute monologue about the nature of true discipleship.

Why the CHURCH is Not Discipling the NATION

In my teaching over the years I have often said “If the church is not discipling the nation, the nation will disciple the church.” Back in March, the Disciple Nations Alliance forum was held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Among the presentations was one by our friend and co-worker of almost

HOW DO WE MEASURE the Great Commission?

We don’t all measure the Great Commission the same way … and the differences aren’t trivial. I’m a big fan of John Piper and have been helped tremendously by his teaching. However, he recently wrote a paper, How Much is Left to Do in Great Commission, which reflects a very narrow understanding

Are We Measuring the Right Things?

I received the following paper from a friend and mission leader with many years of experience. As I read I was challenged, not over whether to measure, but what we measure, and why. As the leader of Harvest, a global mission supported by prayer and financial partners, I have made

Why You Need To Tilt Your Brain

One of the websites I find helpful is Mike Metzger’s Doggie Head Tilt. Mike is the President and Senior Fellow of The Clapham Institute, “whose mission is to help people and organizations advance faith-centered cultural reform.” In DNA circles, we often point out that “cult” is upstream from culture and

An Idea Shaper You Need to Know

Bob Moffitt, fellow co-founder of the Disciple Nations Alliance, and I have been teaching within Youth With A Mission (YWAM) circles since about 1987. For many years, as I would travel and facilitate the Worldview and Development Workshop, people would say “You must know Landa Cope!” I would respond “No!

Connecting the Discipleship Dots

At a recent Harvest Foundation staff meeting we discussed the end purpose of Jesus’ Great Commission: discipling nations.  Even though we know this, it is too easy to overlook the macro implications.  We don’t always “connect the dots” between the discipleship of individuals and the discipleship of nations. Christian discipleship has two
