DMT in Lisbon
I figured since Monday I updated you on my first conference I would go ahead and do the second conference that I have had the priviledge to attend. The conference is called DMT and it’s tagline or summary is:
DMT is all about training. Its goal is to train believers who can then train others in a very simple yet effective method of evangelism, discipleship, and church planting that continues to multiply across relationship networks. DMT is a direct response to the words of Jesus in the Gospel of John (4:35-36), where He states, “Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life.” The central focus is the harvest God has already prepared in advance and is waiting on to be harvested. – See more at: http://gemission.org/intro-dmt-discipleship-multiplication-training#sthash.Bd5hzmKB.dpuf
I went to a similar training when I was still living in Maryland, but this was with Europeans who were looking for ways to expand God’s Kingdom in Europe. There were Europeans, Americans and Canadians present representing a half dozen or so countries. We learned what it means to be a disciple and and how to disciple as well as evangelize.
While most of this time seemed to be geared towards people whose full-time job was church planting, it nevertheless gave me some food for thought. I wanted to share a few questions that kept popping into my head during my time there.
- What am I doing to disciple people?
- What am I doing to talk about Jesus to those who don’t know Him?
- What can I do to help those whose mission is to do something like this full-time?
- What can I do to change my current actions to make them more along the line of disciple making?
