How can we dream of growing the church in an indifferent world? In Contagious Disciple Making, David Watson and Paul Watson map out a simple discipleship method that has sparked an explosion of homegrown churches in the United States and around the world. This distinct process focuses on equipping spiritual leaders in communities where churches are planted. Unlike many evangelism and church-growth products that focus on quick results, this “contagious” disciple-making takes time to cultivate spiritual leadership, resulting in lasting disciple-making movements. Through Contagious Disciple Making readers will come to understand that a well-equipped leader will continue to grow the church long after church planters move on to the next church.
