The Church must be committed to raising up disciple-makers, not conversation facilitators. It seems to me the church should be leading its disciples further into abandonment of their own pursuits to live abundantly with Jesus. Are the disciples of your church empowered and equipped to make disciples in the course of their daily lives? If, instead, the disciples of your church are great at leading small groups but are not actually making disciples, is anything more than furthering your ministry’s programs happening?…When I attempt to step out of that role – to speed up God’s work, to push the ministry forward in steady growth, or to satisfy my own version of “ministry success” – I step out of God’s peace and calling. He gives an inheritance. He multiplies. ~Tyler Staton
