Great Commission Ministries, Inc. is a discipleship ministry who trains and disciples pastors, leaders, and missionaries in 66 countries. We heard the cry from pastors and listened to the great need of church leaders from all over the world who have never been discipled, or have never discipled another believer. They have taught them the Word, prayed with them, and worshipped with them, but have never been taught how Jesus made disciples.
The Jesus Model of discipleship is a very basic method of teaching people what Jesus did and what he trained his disciples to do. It is ease to look into the life of a great man or woman of God and see from their fruit, the type of spiritual leader who has been mentored and now duplicate what Jesus has done in someone else's life.
Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Hebrews 13:7
To duplicate is to teach another believer the value of imitating their faith as a way of life. Literally thousands of pastors and leaders throughout the world are being discipled and empowered to serve and duplicate The Jesus Model like no other time in the history of the world. We must continue to live the Great Commandment and do the Great Commission.
