Disciple Making Movement Cynthia Anderson The primary command Jesus gave His disciples was to “Go and make disciples.” He did not say, “Go and get people saved” (though that is an important first step). He did not say, “Go into all the earth and heal people.” He did not say, “Go into all the earth and convert different religions to Christianity.” The command He gave was “Go and make DISCIPLES.” That is what we are supposed to be doing. Preaching, witnessing, having people to be born again – all of those are STEPS to help people to BECOME disciples. That is one of the main problems the modern church is experiencing. We are too focused on the other STEPS and not the Disciple Making Step. Amen! But, our guest today has been on the quest of “Making Disciples” for the last 30 years! Praise God! Cynthia Anderson is an experienced cross-cultural minister with over 30 years of experience in global leadership, church planting and catalyzing disciple-making movements across the globe. Amen! She and her colleagues pioneered and launched nineteen different disciple multiplying movements – not events – MOVEMENTS – in throughout Africa and Asia, which directly lead to tens of thousands of transformed lives. Praise God! She continues to work in “multiplying disciples” through her ministry, “Disciple Making Movements Frontier Missions” or “DMM Frontier Missions.” She has just launched a marvelous book that will help you to shift mindsets about discipleship and dramatically alter the outcome of your disciple making efforts! Amen! It is titled, “The Multiplier's Mindset: Thinking Differently About Discipleship.” Help me welcome to the program, Cynthia Anderson! Cynthia, thank you taking the time to join us today and share all about your great book! First question I always ask is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Cynthia Anderson?” How did you first get involved with “disciple making?” Your ministry is focused on “Disciple Making Movements.” Explain to us what a “Disciple Making Movement” actually is as compared to, let's say, “Church Planting” or something like that? What are some of the advantages of these massive movements as compared to, let's say the one-on-one discipleship making or the “new believer discipleship classes” you see in many churches today? I explained in the opening that many, many churches today, sadly, have failed to live up to the command Jesus gave us to “Go and make disciples.” And it is not just the churches that have failed, for that is a command given to BELIEVERS. Each one of us. What are some of the obstacles you have observed over the years that has caused this to happen? You have been directly involved in these “movements.” I take this is not so much “one-on-one door knocking” – but massive, community impacting MOVEMENTS. Can you share some interesting things that would demonstrate how these movements can impact a region, leading to the multiplication effect of discipleship? This is different than just going into an area and getting a few people born again and then planting a church,...

Ben and Kimberly, gospel workers in South Asia, join VOM Radio again this week to share more about how the Lord is working in remote villages of South Asia. Struck by the boldness of local believers, Ben and Kimberly see the fearlessness persecuted Christians there have in preaching the gospel. The threat of jail doesn't stop them from preaching; they will preach in jail if necessary. With the rise of anti-conversion laws in South Asia, in many places it is illegal for people to change their religion or to lead others to change their faith. Yet Christians there continue to evangelize and reach people for Christ. Ben and Kimberly will share how persecution is part of the DNA of believers there, and how they are equipping locals with training and discipleship tools. They will also share a story of how God opened one of the darkest villages in this region—a place that had been completely closed to the gospel. Listen to how God planted a church in that village—on the very spot where Christians had prayed God would build His church. Ben and Kimberly love sharing what the Lord did in that village. Kim says, “it's incredibly exciting to see fruit like that.” But they also remind us that even though we may not see immediate fruit we must keep being faithful; God is working whether we see it or not. Pray for Christians in South Asian nations like India, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma and Bangladesh to stand firm and find their identity in Christ, Pray for Ben and Kimberly to receive wisdom from the Lord as they continue in ministry. Listen to part one of Ben and Kim's story to learn more about how they started in overseas missions! Never miss an episode of VOM Radio! Subscribe to the podcast.
