In “The Great Commission,” Jesus instructed his disciples to “make disciples.” (Mt 28:19) The modern evangelical church seems to focus on making converts who are defined by having recited a “sinner’s prayer” and by giving assent to certain intellectual propositions. These emphases are far from the practices of the early church. This KingdomPraxis Solo examines Scripture, the practices of the early church, and a successful modern spiritual movement to explore what “making disciples” might look like.
