When Jesus called his disciples, he embraced fishermen and tax collectors and turned them into some of the most influential men to ever live. Can modern church leaders empower regular people to meet their potential as servants of God?

In the last 12 years, I have used this book to return over one thousand US churches and hundreds of church overseas to their disciple-making roots. Next to the Bible, Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker contains the most important concepts ever written to equip local church to effectively make disciples. I cannot urge you strongly enough to read this book and use it to transform your church and your life.

So many churches today are experiencing spiritual coronaries because they place all their effort on ‘going to church’ and ‘doing church’ but not ‘being the church.’ Bill Hull shows not only why but how to place discipling at the heart of the church’s cardiovascular system to develop missional communities of faith. I love this book because it puts some spiritual teeth back into why disciple-making is the purpose of the church and the task of any spiritual leader.

Bill Hull challenges our notions of who makes disciples, how long it takes, the learning process, and the end result. This book wonderfully shows how open and loving relationships were at the core of Jesus’ own disciple-making while he walked this earth, and how they are still key as he makes disciples today. His understanding is a needed voice to hear in doing ministry in the twenty-first century, especially for those who want to reach our nation and the nations.
—Alan Andrews, president, US Navigators
In this book Bill articulates a proven method of equipping leaders who will follow Jesus’ original pattern in preparing the Twelve for their leadership role in the early church. As the church around the world unites to ‘make disciples of all the nations,’ Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker will be an important roadmap that will keep us all true to Jesus’ vision.
