Disciple Making Movements Resources
Disciple Making Movements (DMM) are a strategy to help you rediscover ways to reach those who may not be likely to attend a church service on a Sunday morning. Whether it’s gathering other parents in your playgroup, meeting with those who visit your gym, or radically welcoming your actual neighbors down the street, DMM is a set of tools to help you engage them, interact with the bible together, develop leaders, get coaching, and expand the kingdom.
These groups result in disciples reproducing disciples, leaders reproducing leaders, churches reproducing churches, and movements reproducing movements.
DMMs start small but can grow to include hundreds or thousands of people. Currently there are 650 movements in numerous countries around the world and thousands of churches being formed from these groups. While the majority of movements are in the Global South but there is a growing number in the North as churches and ministries seek alternative ways to reach the communities. When movements start, the gospel actively transforms the cultures neighborhoods to cities
The main components of DMM are:
- Extravagant Prayer
- Finding People of Peace
- Discovery Bible Studies
- Empowering Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things
- Getting coaching and mentoring
Discovery Groups are a tool for making and multiplying new disciples. They are a significant part of Disciple Making Movements (DMM) and are intended to be used with people who don’t know Jesus to help them discover God by looking at a passage of scriptures each week.
