Leadership Collective – Missional Discipleship

Leadership Collective – Missional Discipleship

Have you been listening to the topic of conversations among leaders in the local church lately?  Some have to do with what is going on in society (pandemic, moving online, racial justice).  Other conversations get granular as tensions rise within our government.  Many leaders in pastoral and church planting ministries that I speak to express the stress, challenges and difficult times we are all facing.  These are very real – see Six Reasons Your Pastor Is About to Quit by Tom Rainer.

Most encouraging though are the interactions I have with leaders about the unprecedented opportunity they see, as difficult as it is at this pivotal moment in time, to move the mission of Jesus forward.  I would venture to say that if we could capture this moment and raise the bar on discipleship, apprentices of Jesus will have the capacity to overcome many of the social injustices we face in our society.  How can we take advantage of this unique situation and re-introduce the commission Jesus entrusted us with His disciples: to make disciples, who make disciples and who in turn, make disciples.

The conversation today, revolves around discipleship – how can we make more and better disciples in our current cultural moment, given the opportunities certain restrictions have imposed on our ministries?

I was speaking to a regional leader just this week and he mentioned that the 30-40 churches he overseas are asking this very question.  Because of the restrictions placed on large and mid-size group gatherings, congregations that do not have small group ministries have been forced to create smaller, more manageable, disciplemaking groups.  Those that are unable to pivot quickly and do so will cease to exist.  This is the harsh reality of the season we find ourselves.  However, those that are able to see the wisdom and leverage this opportunity are innovating new ways to make disciples.

Here are two practical insights that he shared:

  1. The strongest churches are focused on small home groups.
  2. The younger families are participating at a higher level via Zoom groups.

For you, disciplemaking may have been the primary driver for your ministry.  For other leaders, this pivotal moment in time has afforded you the opportunity to reflect.  You are are discovering for the first time or rediscovering the essence of ministry and the absolute necessity of disciplemaking.  This gives me hope, motivation and energy for the future!

Last week I did a quick fly-by on the Leadership Collective for Missional Discipleship that is designed to help you:

  • Discover ways to incorporate disciple coach values in your life and ministry.
  • Connect with like-minded leaders on this same journey.in meaningful ways.
  • Create a comprehensive discipleship pathway that suits your context.
  • Equip other disciples coaches on your team to Connect, Grow, Serve and Reproduce.

One of the reasons Micah Dodson and I are compelled to offer this now is because of the conversations we are having with leaders about this very issue.  Below is more information with a call to action at the very bottom of the page.

We have established a by-invitation-only, private network for you to LEARN about the Missional Discipleship CollectiveCONNECT with like-minded leaders on a similar journey and INTERACT on relevant issues.  We pray that you will consider this important issue.  Will you take the next step and join the network?

Ask the tough questions 99% of coaches avoid

As you know I am always looking for ways to enhance my coaching effectiveness to create life-changing results for pastors, church planters and missionaries quickly and consistently.  When I come across quality opportunities I share them with my tribe of coaches.  One lesson I learned early on in my development is to get comfortable having uncomfortable conversations and asking difficult questions!

This month, former ICF President and multi best-selling author, Marcia Reynolds will host a complimentary masterclass called Keys To Breakthrough Coaching. I’d love you to be my guest.

In this live masterclass, Marcia will show you how to have a greater impact on your clients, their organizations, and the world. You’ll discover how to turn the uncomfortable conversations and difficult questions 99% of coaches avoid into your standard mode of operation.

4 Values of a Disciple Coach

4 Values of a Disciple Coach

One of the realizations of this season we find ourselves in is discovering what is important to each of us.

For example, certain things we just are not able to do now like going to sporting events, the movie theater and even hanging out with friends and family that are not under the same roof. There are some things we are still able to do.

Reflect on those things that are important to you

Perhaps it is taking a walk or hike, getting to know your neighbors or spending a day at the beach with your immediate family.  Maybe it is reading a good book, making stuff with your hands or cooking.  Whatever those things are – many of us have found a way to do those activities we truly value, despite the threat of a pandemic.

One activity I love doing is riding my mountain-bike.  You will find me and my wife on the trails in back of our home, three mornings a week from 6-8:30am.  This is the time when we feel safe to ride given the low numbers of people on the trails and cooler weather.  If you are interested – I’ve uploaded two, 25-second videos for your viewing entertainment below:

  • Gary climbing a gnarly hill, 65′ change in elevation – CLICK HERE
  • Gary dropping down a technical gully, 73′ change in elevation – CLICK HERE.  The photo at the top of this blog is the cut I sustained when I misjudged the final drop earlier this season.  It was not pretty…

BTW – in case you are wondering, my wife, Gina was the videographer.  To give you an idea of her riding capacity – she was so far ahead of me that she was able to unload her bike, get positioned on the trail with her iPhone and record me riding.  I want to be like her some day:>)

Let me suggest that disciple coaches value certain behaviors.  Even during a pandemic, disciple coaches understand the importance of the intentional effort required to connect with pre-Christian, helping new disciples grow in their faith, coaching  disciples to move from being a consumer to serve others and reproduce into the lives of other yet-to-be disciples of Christ.  Here are those values again, taken from the Making Disciples Storyboard:

CONNECT

GROW

SERVE

REPRODUCE

  1. Interested in learning more about the values of a disciple coach?
  2. Would you like to explore being part of a cohort with like-minded leaders?

Reflection Questions for a Disciple Coach: BUILDING BLOCK #4 – Strategic Accountability

Reflection Questions for a Disciple Coach: BUILDING BLOCK #4 – Strategic Accountability

Previously, I alluded to our Leadership Collective 2000 and presented 4 Basic Building Blocks of Disciplemaking – CLICK HERE. Since then I have been working with Glenn Spyksma to brainstorm reflection questions under each of the Disciple-Making Building Blocks (DMbb).  

Disciplemaking is a spiritual process with very real actionable steps.  I use the term, Disciple Coach for the disciplemaker because it is more descriptive of the role of the disciple who makes disciples in our world today.  Here are three benefits of Building Block #4 – Accountability.

The Power of Strategic Accountability:

  1. Accountability helps the Disciple Coach keep the main thing, the main thing.
  2. Accountability helps the Disciple Coach learn from real experience.
  3. Accountability helps the Disciple Coach in-motion.

Following are the reflection questions that you can use as a Disciple Coach to have a discipleship cycle (not a process)

 

Reflection Questions

DMbb #4 Accountability

  • With God
    • What are you learning about God?
    • How do you know when you are doing the things God has called you to do as a disciple coach?
  • With yourself with grace
    • How am I prioritizing life events as a disciple coach?
    • What am I not doing that I know I should be doing?
  • With those God has entrusted to you
    • What do you do to process set-backs with a disciple when their good intentions don’t produce the intended fruit?
    • What progress are you observing with the disciples you are coaching on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis?
    • How do you celebrate a disciple’s progress when they take action?
  • With trusted mentors
    • What do you do to process missed opportunities as a disciple coach?
    • How do you celebrate your progress when you take action as a disciple coach?

 

A resources to help Disciple Coaches stay in motion

Making Disciples Coaching Guide: this includes a brief explanation of each of the locations on the “map” accompanied by reflection questions for use by the Disciple Coach OR used in the context of a coaching relationship (see the explanation below)  – CLICK HERE.

The best way to use the 4 DMbb

  1. Meet with a disciple coach or a group of disciple coaches.
  2. Use the 4 DMbb as an assessment – help the disciple coach identify which one they need to focus on today
  3. Depending on which of the four the disciple coach identifies, help them further reflect on the specific aspect they need to focus – see expanded list CLICK HERE

That will set the stage for a spiritual discernment process to determine the disciple coach’s next steps.  Use the reflection questions above, in addition to the questions we present under the remaining DMbb presented in future blogs to facilitate the conversation.  Help the disciple coach is to stay in motion by taking the next step in their journey to make disciples that make disciples.

Disciplemaking is a spiritual process with very real actionable steps.  I use the term, Disciple Coach for the disciplemaker because it is more descriptive of the role of the disciple who makes disciples in our world today.  Here are three assumptions that we make when we speak about disciplemaking. Here are three distinctions between Building Block #3 Have a discipleship cycle – and a process.

What is the difference between a “cycle” vs. a “process”?

  1. A cycle is ongoing and continuous vs. a process – it has a clear start and end point.
  2. A cycle prioritizes the need of the disciple vs. a process – it is linear with a pre-determined agenda.
  3. A cycle relies on obedience vs. a process – it relies on content and acquiring knowledge.

Following are the reflection questions that you can use as a Disciple Coach to have a discipleship cycle (not a process)

Reflection Questions

DMbb #3 Have a discipleship cycle (not a process)

  • Develop a comprehensive disciplemaking cycle that you believe in and will use:
    • Who have you shared your disciplemaking cycle with, in the last 90 days?
    • If you don’t have anyone that you have shared your disciplemaking cycle with recently, what is getting in the way?
    • What changes do you need to make to your disciplemaking cycle?
  • Develop a comprehensive disciplemaking cycle that is reproducible and incorporates the three steps of multiplication:

STEP 1

“I do you watch” 

STEP 2

“You do and I watch”

STEP 3

“You do and some else watches”

    • How transferable is your cycle?
    • Who have you discipled that is using your cycle with other disciple coaches?
    • What elements need to be refined further or added to make your cycle more transferable?

Disciplemaking is a spiritual process with very real actionable steps.  I use the term, Disciple Coach for the disciplemaker because it is more descriptive of the role of the disciple who makes disciples in our world today.  Here are three assumptions that we make when we speak about disciplemaking.

3 Problems that DMbb #2 Solves

  1. Knowledge without relationships will not make disciples.
  2. When you gravitate towards the local church for most of your relationships you will probably not make disciples.
  3. If you disproportionately form relationships with disciples of Jesus who are outside the local church, you risk isolation from Christian community.

Following are the reflection questions that you can use as a Disciple Coach to form relationships with pre-Christian and Christians.

Reflection Questions

DMbb #2 Form relationships with non-Christians and Christians

  • Relationships with non-Christians
    • Who are you forming redemptive relationships with to make disciples as a disciple coach? 
    • Using the following progression working from left to right, how would you classify your disciplemaking efforts:  Relationship — Friendship — Discipleship. 
    • What skills do you need to apply to move your relationship forward on the progression: listening, asking questions, prayer, other __________.
  • Relationships with Christians
    • What Christians are you forming intentional relationships with to support your disciplemaking efforts as a disciple coach?
    • What is missing to help you stay on-mission with  your disciplemaking efforts as a disciple coach?
    • What step can you take to strengthen that relationship?

Reflection Questions for a Disciple Coach: Building Block #1 – Prayer

Reflection Questions for a Disciple Coach: Building Block #1 – Prayer

Disciplemaking is a spiritual process with very real actionable steps.  I use the term, Disciple Coach for the disciplemaker because it is more descriptive of the role of the disciple who makes disciples in our world today.  Here are three assumptions that we make when we speak about disciplemaking.

3 Assumptions of Disciplemaking

  1. The Scriptures are the source of new life in Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, for the disciple coach.
  2. The fruit of a disciple coach are disciples making disciples
  3. The best context for disciplemaking is “as the disciple coach goes about doing life”.

Previously, I alluded to our Leadership Collective 2000 and presented 4 Basic Building Blocks of Disciplemaking – CLICK HERE. Since then I have been working with Glenn Spyksma to brainstorm reflection questions under each of the Disciple-Making Building Blocks (DMbb).  For a quick review, here are the 4 DMBB.

An Excellent Resource to Equip Your Congregation to Serve Online

An Excellent Resource to Equip Your Congregation to Serve Online

These are challenging times for all in ministry.  We are uncertain about the path forward as the recommendations for keeping people safe change daily.  However, the opportunities for the local church to step-up, have never been greater!  Last week I received an e-mail from a friend highlighting an opportunity to help young people.  As the struggles young people encounter become more and more pronounced during the pandemic, one ministry is offering you and your congregation an opportunity to serve.  Learn how you and your people can serve as mentors to support youth during their time of need.
SharetheStruggle.org could be an amazing opportunity to allow churches to equip their congregation to do ministry online as they seek to match christian mentors who have made it through various struggles with hurting young people in the middle of that struggle.
Here is a 2 minute long video explaining what they do 

COACHING RESOURCES FOR EXTROVERTS

One of my big lessons over the last 30+ years has been learning how to adjust to different personality types.  Helping young people process their struggles requires a high level of EQ (Emotional Intelligence).  I learned that introverts process information differently than extroverts (using the Myers/Briggs).  Understanding how you function is a good first step to self-awareness, understanding how to adjust to the people you coach is a good next step.

4 Basic Building Blocks of Disciplemaking

4 Basic Building Blocks of Disciplemaking

One of the exercises from our Leadership Collective, that supports the work of church planters and pastors, is for participants to design their disciplemaking process.  One of the participants is a regional leader for his denomination.  Glenn Spyksma (second from the right in the photo above) gives leadership and oversight to roughly 30 churches.

Therefore, he has the ability to view the disciplemaking process from two vantage points:

  1. As the member of a local congregation
  2. As the overseer of multiple congregations

He landed on a curious question a few month ago:

“What are the minimum tools a disciple needs to become a disciplemaker?”

Before I go further I should mention that he comes into the Leadership Collective with a business background as the former Vice President of a large, international corporation.  This is what Glenn came up with from his interactions with pastors and church planters who have robust disciplemaking ministries, in his r  ion.

Below are four developmental skill attributes which are common in some people that excel in discipleship.  In this case discipleship begins with you discipling a non-believer and culminates in that individual leading/mentoring/coach discipling a non-believer at the beginning of their journey.  One of the fundamental and scary shifts is the realization and facilitation of the priesthood of all believers.  Everyone “Go and make disciples”.

4 Basic Building Blocks of Disciplemaking:
1.  Prayer
  • Prayer for me
    • To understand Christ’s biblical foundation
    • To have a heart and mind for the lost that translate to compassion and action
    • To see who God is leading my way
  • Prayer for those God is leading my way to be open to the touch of the Holy Spirit
2.  Form relationships with non-christian and christians
  • Without both it is difficult to have a discipleship cycle.
  • Without one of the two it may be a ramp not a cycle.
3.  Have a discipleship cycle (not a process)
  • Develop a process that you believe in and will use
  • “I do you watch” to “You do and I watch” to “You do and some else watches”
4.   Accountability
  • With God
  • With yourself with grace
  • With those God has entrusted to you

MAKING DISCIPLES STORYBOARD

LEADERSHIP        MULTIPLICATION PATHWAY

We used the resources above as a framework – then each participant was asked to create their own disciplemaking process, draw it on a napkin and explain it in a 3-minute video.  It was exciting to hear common themes, distinctives and overall clarity as the leaders presented.  Can you explain your disciplemaking cycle in a clear, concise and simple way; so someone unfamiliar with your cycle can understand it,  in a matter of minutes?

What gets rewarded gets done – 5 questions to reflect on the “win” for your ministry

What gets rewarded gets done – 5 questions to reflect on the “win” for your ministry

Current Champion League Champs, Liverpool FC with their manager Jurgen Klopp, celebrated a historic fifth championship last year (the tournament started in 1956).  This year they won the English Premiership (arguable the most competitive league in the world) with the following accomplishments, if they continue their dominance in the weeks ahead:

  • the most points ever earned by a team
  • the most wins
  • the greatest margin between themselves and their nearest rivals, during the modern era.

Their celebration affirmed their supremacy in the footballing (aka soccer) world.  What is the genius behind Klopp’s approach?  His trademark hugs to players when coming off the field, following a match and winning trophies go a long way in affirming what he values.  But there is something more going on here.

In a recent Men in Blazers interview with Klopp, he was asked what really matters.  His response was noteworthy – I summarize here.  At the end of our lives I don’t believe we will be asked how many trophies we’ve won; however, I do think it matters what we have done with what we were given.  Absolutely, every day I strive to make the most of every opportunity.  What matters for me is that my players have given their best every time they step on the field.

This is what Klopp is affirming.  The wins, trophies make a difference; but it is the mentality of “leaving everything on the field”, is what matters most.  And is one reason Liverpool FC is the dominate club in the world today!

Back in my seminary days (1985-1988) I distinctly remember a chapel service when a guest speaker, George Patterson, come in to share his methodology of disciplemaking.  The speaker was energetic and engaging – disarming in his presentation style.  Most of all – CHALLENGING “the win” for missionaries, church planters and pastors. 

George Patterson was a missionary in Honduras where he discovered a radical (meaning “root” or “returning to the foundation of something) approach to disciplemaking and church multiplication.

Read more about George Patterson

George Patterson spent 21 years in Central America training pastors to make disciples in a New Testament fashion that rapidly multiplies churches. In Honduras he began by training pastors in a traditional, resident Bible Institute with poor results. With the advice of more experienced missionaries and much trial and error, he later saw churches multiply through the instrumentality of “Theological Education and Evangelism by Extension” (TEEE). This non-formal pastoral training resulted in about 100 new churches over twenty years in northern Honduras. This is as a result of the Biblical discipleship and church reproduction principles Dr. Patterson implemented. This model is now used with similar results in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well in the United States, and is distributed as Train & Multiply TM. George’s teaching style relies heavily on student involvement in role-plays and exercises that bring learning to life. He is hilarious and hyper-energetic in the classroom.

George was “rewarding” or affirming disciples who were making disciples AND planting churches through their disciplemaking efforts.  It was inspiring and captivating.  Near the end he role modeled an exercise that involved students as he went through the 5-step disciplemaking/leadership development process:

  1. I do – you watch
  2. You do – with me
  3. You do – I watch
  4. You do – without me
  5. You do – with someone else

Church Multiplication Guide by George Patterson & Richard Scoggins

George clearly communicated the “win”: disciples making disciples + churches planting churches.  His explanation communicated that these outcomes were celebrated, affirmed and rewarded in culturally appropriate ways.

I will never forget this principle.

Closer to home, we might “reward” behaviors or achievements in ministry: baptisms, budget and buildings.  Whatever those things are – we intentionally or unintentionally exalt or lift-up. Certain things recieve more air-time and attention, than others.

I remember the story a pastor shared, illustrating the importance he and the congregation at his previous church placed on Sunday morning worship attendance.  The pastor set a numerical goal for the year for new visitors to attend a worship service.  The morning of the final count the pastor realized he was 1 person short of their goal.  He explained how he went to the local gas station the morning of, and convinced an employee to join him and attend service that morning.  The employee did so and the congregation celebrated that accomplishment of the milestone together.

You might not reward Sunday morning worship attendance.  But you might take a look at how your people are demonstrating behaviors of a disciple.  Here is a short list of disciplemaking characteristics you might track:

  • Compassion
  • Sharing faith
  • Acts of Service
  • Sacrificial Giving
  • Humility

Whatever that thing is, it is important for people to see what you and your church affirm, prioritize and reward.

5 questions to reflect on the “win” for your ministry

  1. How would you describe a “win” in your ministry?
  2. What are you rewarding in ministry?
  3. How are you rewarding people when they “win”?
  4. If your current “win” is not in alignment with your vision, what needs to change?
  5. What step can you take to affirm the “win” in your ministry, this week?
