Actually, not even at all! Pastor Robby, whom I've met, along with the whole Replicate team, gives wonderful insight into what we're really supposed to be about, why, and where it will lead if we are faithful in it! Very convicting, convincing, and relationship-changing!
There's a lot more to being a Disciple, than saying a little prayer and showing up on Sunday. But too many of us get so caught up in the business of day to day life, that we forget the basics of making disciples. Gallaty reminds us of some of those things, and provides a process that can be followed.
It seems counter-intuitive to think that there is a process that works in a wide variety of cases: we're so used to hearing that this is "just a model, it won't work for everyone", but a big part of what disciple making is all about is the idea that the person you help to become a disciple-making disciple can take the process you use and replicate it.
He even offers an acronym For the process: C.L.O.S.E.R. for Communicate, Learn, Obey, Store, Evangelize, and Renew: H.E.A.R.ing from God.
Every member of the Christ's Church should be all about making disciples. This book might just help many of us get there.
So it is with a great deal of excitement that I can heartily recommend Growing Up by Robby Gallaty. The book is a great resource for a newly formed discipleship group (or D-Group, as he calls it). For those desiring a notebook format, the appendices easily copy to create just what is needed. At a time in which little is out there, at least in a practical form, this book is a most welcome edition.
I have already ordered 30 copies for use in three different settings (church, Youth for Christ, and family). And best of all, the process is designed so that those in new groups begin with the concept of the group ending and each of them forming new groups for the next round. Here's hoping you will get get involved with this process too.
Disciple-making is obviously the overwhelming theme of the book, but Gallaty also provides the reader with an extremely useful method for H.E.A.Ring the Lord in personal quiet time. Using information from his other book, "Creating an Atmosphere to HEAR God Speak," Galltay outlines how to journal, pray, and dive deeper into the Word. Although this book can be used in a discipleship program at your church or ministry, it's also very relevant for the new, stagnant, or mature Christian for practical ways to journal and grow deeper in understanding Scripture. Keeping the main thing the "main thing," Gallaty provides easy avenues for your discipleship programs to stay focused on the Word of God more than anything else.
Whether you are just starting out in discipleship or have been discipling people your entire life, I strongly recommend that you use this very practical book to help guide your disciples in a closer walk with the Lord.
