Moving From Attracting Spectators to Equipping Disciple-Makers
If I could say one thing to church planters around the world, it would be this, "Please do not follow our popular Western example of how to do church." We have failed miserably to equip the people in our churches to be disciple-makers and church planters. We have failed miserably to instill in believers the biblical vision of the Great Commission. There are far better church planting models to follow -- a number of which are presented in this issue. Rather, let us in the West learn how to do church from the great movements which God is initiating around the world so that all believers everywhere will be equipped for the work of ministry.
