Jesus’ mission for the church is to make disciples who make disciples. But we can’t become a disciple making church just preaching about it or by just going through a small group curriculum on it. Rather, disciple making somehow needs to become the actual culture of our churches. Brandon Guindon, author of the recently released book Disciple Making Culture, talked with Daniel McCoy about how to cultivate a disciple making culture in our churches–a culture which promotes disciple making instead of distracting us from it.
