3dm has seen 5000 missional communities and 750 church plants in the last 3 years.
They learned that Discipleship is most important. If you make disciples you will always get the church. Ask yourself 1) What is my plan for discipleship? and 2) Is it working? According to Saxton, we do not have a leadership or missional problem, it’s a discipleship problem.
Jesus’ discipleship approach involved information, imitation, and innovation. Know what this is about, observe and practice what this is about,
Does our plan of discipleship include imitation? Do they get to observe and practice what another Christ follower is doing? 3dm creates huddles in which they ask each other, “What is God doing?” and “What are you going to do about it?”
Jesus was Innovative. He turned social, moral, political, and religious systems upside down. If you disciple people, it can’t help but reach innovative world change.
