2 Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

7 A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher. Luke 6:40

8 We teach what we know; we reproduce what we are. Robert Schmidgall

9 Making Disciples who Make Disciples One Command is to MAKE DISCIPLES 1 st Action Word Go!

10 Come, follow Me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men. Matthew 4:19

11 We ve drifted away from being fishers of men to being keepers of the aquarium. - Paul Harvey

12 1 st Action Word Go This could be translated Go and as you are going. a. Going where you are..

13 Jesus did not let him, but said, Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you. So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed. Mark 5:19-20

14 1 st Action Word Going This could be translated Go and as you are going. a. Going where you are.. b. Going where you are not

15 But the Lord said to Ananias, Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name. Acts 9:15-16

16 The biggest challenge for church leaders is not how to get people to study the Bible more but how to get people to evangelize more. It is not how to get people to focus on their own needs but how to get them to focus outward on the needs of others. - Gary McIntosh

17 Making Disciples who Make Disciples One Command is to MAKE DISCIPLES 1 st Action Word Go 2 nd Action Word Baptizing

18 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7

19 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. Luke 9:30-31

20 Making Disciples who Make Disciples One Command is to MAKE DISCIPLES 1 st Action Word Going 2 nd Action Word Baptizing 3 rd Action Word Teaching to Obey

21 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, Take off the grave clothes and let him go. John 11:43-44

22 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. 2 Timothy 2:2

23 But the one who receives the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Matthew 13:23

24 Reproducing Disciples Edward Kimball was concerned about one of his young Sunday School students who worked at a shoe store in town. One day he visited him at the store, found the student in the back stocking shoes, and led him to Christ then and there.

25 Reproducing Disciples Dwight L Moody D. L. Moody eventually left the shoe store to become one of the greatest preachers and evangelists of all time.

26 Reproducing Disciples D. L. Moody Preached in a little chapel overseas in the British Isles, pastored by a young man. He told his story about a Sunday School teacher he had known in Chicago who personally went to every student in his class and let every one

27 Reproducing Disciples Frederick B. Meyer Moody s testimony changed F.B. Meyer s entire ministry, inspiring him to become an evangelist like Moody.

28 Reproducing Disciples F. B. Meyer Over the years Meyer came to America several times to preach. Once in Northfield, Massachusetts, a confused young preacher heard him say If you are not willing to give up everything for Christ, are you willing to be made willing? That remark led a young man to respond to the call of God on his life.

29 Reproducing Disciples J. Wilbur Chapman That remark led him to respond to the call of God on his life. He became one of the most effective evangelist of his time. A volunteer helped him set up his crusades.

30 Reproducing Disciples That volunteer was Billy Sunday. He took over Chapman s ministry and became one of the most dynamic evangelists of the 20 th century.

31 Reproducing Disciples Inspired by a 1924 Billy Sunday crusade in Charlotte, North Carolina, a committee of Christians there dedicated themselves to reaching that city for Christ. The committee invited an evangelist to hold a series of evangelistic meetings in Charlotte, N.C. in 1932

32 Reproducing Disciples Mordecai Ham was the evangelist who came to Charlotte for the evangelistic meetings. A lanky teenager heard him shouting and waving a lone finger at him. The teenage came night after night.

33 Reproducing Disciples That teenager was Billy Graham. It all started with a Sunday School teacher visiting one of his students at his shoe store. Where and when will you start?
