Overview

Often there is so much focus in our churches on the first part of Christ’s Great Commission—evangelism—that the second part is omitted. The omission is not the preaching of Christ or the importance of world mission; it is the teaching of others on what it means to be an apprentice of Jesus. The sad result is generations of believers trying to be different from the world and not understanding why they aren’t.

In this update of his groundbreaking book, Bill Hull explains why disciple-making must be the focus of the church and shows us our part in making it happen. With practical examples drawn from vast ministry experience, Hull helps the church deepen and enrich the lives of believers as they learn to truly follow Christ.

Praise for the Print Edition

Bill Hull’s vision for a disciple-making church has been transformational in my personal life and an inspiration to the leaders of my church. The Disciple-Making Church should be a staple for any pastor or lay leader seeking to build a church that thrives on being and making disciples of Jesus Christ.

—Brian Benson, senior pastor, Chino Valley Community Church, Chino Hills, CA

Bill Hull is one of the most influential thinkers today on discipleship for the church. His own extensive pastoral experience, combined with his long history as a consultant to many churches and denominations worldwide, not only gives him a theoretical foundation but also equips him to give very practical help for the church in this book.

Michael J. Wilkins, distinguished professor of New Testament language and literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

Bill Hull has once again challenged me deeply. With great passion and eloquence he presents the biblical case for disciple-making. This book will make readers pause to examine both their life and their ministry. I heartily recommend it.

—Jim Pearson, former senior pastor, Brookside Church, Fort Wayne, IN

In my pastorates I have used The Disciple-Making Church as a training manual for church leaders. This revision updates and improves what is already one of the finest pieces of work available on disciple-making.

—Byron Morgan, senior pastor, Mountain View Church, Marietta, GA
