Globally: Identify, enter into relationship with and help equip national pastors throughout the world to be disciples of Jesus, make disciples of Jesus, lead disciple-making churches and disciple other national pastors in this process.
Locally: Create an environment and process in our home church to intentionally support our international discipleship process through giving, prayer, equipping, coaching, communicating and celebrating.
How it Works:
As we have been led of the Lord to focus our World Missions efforts on helping pastors lead disciple-making churches, God has provided numerous, amazing opportunities. We begin by investing in and equipping volunteers on our Missions Team in Post Falls, training them to come alongside international pastors in the arena of Biblical discipleship. We send teams (RLM staff members and volunteers) to many countries, and connect them with pastors who have a desire to be and make disciples of Jesus. As our teams and International Coaches continue to build relationship with and walk alongside these pastors, we help take them through the steps of creating a disciple-making culture in their churches. We can also help them to grow and reproduce by showing them how to come alongside other pastors, send out their own disciple-making missionaries and plant disciple-making churches.
What God Has Been Doing:
God has been actively blessing our World Missions. We have seen our efforts multiplied 100 fold. From the seed we have sown (Mark 4:26-29) He has brought forth magnificent crops. We have seen it spread to over 25 countries, hundreds of churches and thousands of discipleship small groups. God has brought to us incredible ministry partners – key Pastors in many countries who are “leaders of leaders.” They are spreading Jesus’ model of relational discipleship at an astounding pace.
In the midst of this tremendous growth, we want to remember two key pieces: Firstly, God is reaching the lost and transforming individual lives – it is not about the numbers. And, secondly, God is also doing a work among our own people who make up our Missions Team here in Post Falls, Idaho. Marriages are being strengthened, our volunteers are growing in their own walk with the Lord and are being and making disciples of Jesus right here at “home base” as well.
God has truly blessed us abundantly.
To Him be the Glory!
