Discipleship Materials

  • Disciple Making Movements (DMM) and Church Planting Movements (CPM & T4T) page of the wiki provides helps in growing disciples particularly in group contexts.

The lessons will help new believers take their first steps towards victory in their Christian life. The original volume was written in Spanish, and later translated into English, French, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Swahili, Kinyarwanda y Malgache. Recommended by Craig Nordgren.

 Online Courses

  • Online course with our partners at WorldTeam called: Discipleship: Growing Mature Followers of Jesus with challenging content and stimulating discussion with other learners who see the critical role of discipleship in church planting among the unreached.




  • Mentoring New Missionaries – see EMQ  2008 –  specific ideas as to how to do mentor new missionaries.
  • Questions for Mentors/New Missionaries – This is a very simple, one-page list of questions in 5 keys areas that all new missionaries are faced with: language study, cultural adjustment, spiritual health, personal/family adjustments, and church involvement. This just gives an idea of some of the kinds of practical questions that could be discussed between mentor and mentee.
  • Thrive in a New Place (SIM) – This is a great little booklet put out by SIM, again to be used in a mentoring relationship with a new missionaries. It is intended to be used weekly over the course of several months. Included are great questions, covering a range of topics, as well as evaluation tools. Again, a great little tool that could easily be adapted to a particular team/field.
