In the book Essential Church, Sam Rainer and I discussed extensively the topic of intentionality. Churches that are intentional with their discipleship process are intentional about moving Christians to a deeper walk with Christ with deeper teachings of Christ. When we asked church leaders about the best method for intentionally discipling those in their churches, the typical response was “Don’t just stand there; do something.”
As we approach 2012, I’d like to ask you to take time to reflect on 2011 and answer the question “Did I personally—or my church corporately— "do something" this past year to reach and disciple people.
As a follow-up, “How will you continue or improve upon that in 2012?”
Feel free to share your ideas, methods, or words of encouragement.
