Feeling stuck in auto-pilot ministry? You’re not alone. We’ve been diving deep into 5 key disciple-making habits, but what’s the real point? Here’s why it’s crucial to assess how you’re creating a ripple effect of disciples who make disciples.

STOP, REFLECT, and REIGNITE your disciple-making strategy:

1. Reignite Your Why:

Have you ever been on autopilot? Ministry can become routine. Summer’s a perfect time to rediscover your passion!

Reflection Question: What gets you FIRED UP about your ministry?

2. Evaluate Your Impact:

Is your ministry bearing fruit? Take a courageous look at the results. Are you excited, frustrated, or somewhere in between?

Reflection Questions:

  • What’s THRIVING?
  • What NEEDS WORK?
  • What NEEDS to CHANGE?

3. Make the Main Thing THE Main Thing:

Busyness can steal your focus on what truly matters: disciple-making disciples!

Reflection Question: What activities are DISTRACTING you from your core purpose?

4. Simplify Your Disciple-Making Cycle:

Busy schedules cloud the essentials. Refocus on the actions that truly transform lives.
