Christ commanded the church to make disciples, to produce people who love and obey God, bear fruit, and live with joy. The crisis at the heart of the church is that we often pay lip service to making disciples, but we seldom put much effort behind doing it. For the pastor who is ready to put words into action, The Disciple-Making Pastor offers the inspiration and practical know-how to do so.
Bill Hull shows pastors the obstacles they will face, what disciples really look like, the pastor’s role in producing them, and the practices that lead to positive change. He also offers a six-step coaching process to help new disciples grow in commitment and obedience, and practical ideas to integrate disciple-making into the fabric of the church.

Every decade a few books are written which clearly define the critical issues, masterfully present the biblical truths, and radically challenge traditional approaches. The Disciple-Making Pastor is such a book! . . . I highly recommend it.
—Dann Spader, founder and director, Sonlife Ministries
If we are going to see Christians in this country reflect Christ’s values, we need to get back to serious biblical discipleship. The pastor is the key to this effort. Bill Hull’s book is the best work I’ve read on this issue. It is must reading for every pastor and seminary student in our land.
—Ron Jenson, cofounder and emeritus chairman, Future Achievement International
Carefully guides pastors through a reevaluation of their function and priorities so that they can ‘reshape the face of pastoral ministry’ and become disciple-making pastors who ignite the church to action.
—Jim Westgate, executive director, Church Ministries Department, Evangelical Free Church of America
Nothing is more important in a disciple-making book than the quality of the life of the disciple who wrote it. Observing the humility and growth in Bill Hull’s life these past 10 years freed me to recommend this valuable book to you. As he confirms, ‘It is more important to be a disciple than to have a plan to make disciples.’ Don’t miss the Further Reflections sections—they demonstrate a keen perspective on the Christian community today.
