Discipling Lessons Learned

Stephen at “Chronological Bible Storying Journal – Rural Brazil” has written a very good post called “Lessons Learned: How to be a missionary.” Stephen shares some lessons that he’s learned while making disciples in Brazil.

Here are the major points:

Don’t spend your time trying to create groups.

Disciple groups that already exist.

Give preference to oral communication.

Don’t be a Bible scholar.

Be consistent and proactive.

Don’t celebrate decisions and move on.

Stephen explains each point in detail. So, jump over to his blog and read the whole thing.

What do you think of Stephen’s “lessons learned”?

    Alan, I appreciate the way you highlight other people’s blogs.
    Thank you.

    I think those are lessons that all of us need to learn. As our own culture becomes less and less “Christian,” our witness becomes more and more like that of missionaries in foreign lands. The old ways aren’t working any more.
