"Filling our auditoriums does not prove success in ministry. The disciples we grow, not the number of people who sign on the dotted line professing salvation, reveal the fruit of ministry.
Too often we get sidetracked into pursuing the secondary, rather than the primary. Jesus gave marching orders 'to make disciples' (Matt. 28:18-20). The Commander's thing must be the big thing in ministry.

The disciple-maker continually watches for tools to help in the discipling process.

Larry DiSimone gives us a great tool to help accomplish our objective. Making Disciples walks the believer through the basics of the Christian life. The simplicity of the format makes it usable for anyone desiring to help establish others in the faith."

"The Making Disciples series not only equipped me as I led a group of young ladies through the material; it also taught me so many fundamental truths about Christianity that I either took for granted, or for which I didn't know the Biblical references and reasons. By working through these books, I now have a much better grasp on Christian doctrine, and am confident in sharing it with others." ~Donna - San Diego, CA

"Making Disciples has given me a practical application for Biblical living. I use it as a how-to tool when asked the 'tough' questions; it has very handy references. Within the small group, I had 'rehearsal time' in this kind of dialogue, and it sharpened my leadership skills. It also deepened the fellowship with the ladies in my group." ~ Susan - Orange, CA

"There were so many things that as a believer I just didn't know. Topics including prophecy, Israel, and the Holy Spirit were explained so well. Through this material, I have a better understanding and a broader base of Biblical knowledge which I didn't have before." ~ Linda - San Diego, CA

"I had never thought that learning more about scripture could be so enjoyable until I started leading my own discipleship group…and then it kept getting better!" ~ Jim - Santa Ana, CA
