Area of Ministry: Discipleship
Project: Discipleship Multiplication Movement Training
General Information about Discipleship Multiplication Movement (DMM) Training
Discipleship was the strategy that Jesus gave to his disciples for them to reach every ethnic group. Since 2007 we have host discipleship multiplication training courses in several Bulgarian cities – Burgas, Varna, Kazanlak, Smolian, Dupnitsa, and even beyond Bulgaria – in Nicosia, Cyprus.
Our primary objective in Discipleship training is to facilitate the multiplication of this ministry in the trainees’ lives by making it easy to reproduce. To achieve this objective, we have looked for various ways of making reproduction natural, even for people who have no theological training. The uniqueness of the Discovery Bible Study is that it facilitates self-exploration and the application of Biblical truth in the life of every participant. That is why we focus on the Church Planting Movement approach and the Discovery Bible Study tools as the most valuable discipleship methods.
Impact of the Program
DMM training is crucial because it is the foundation for launching DMM in our country. Spreading the vision about DMM and making disciples will empower the local church for spiritual and numerical growth. The closer we are to Jesus’ strategy for expanding the kingdom of God, the healthier we are going to be spiritual. Spiritual health will certainly bring about church growth.
The discipleship seminars are a gateway to the discipleship process. For the discipleship movement to be launched in a church, its pastor needs to have a vision and a passion for discipleship so that trainees begin to practice what they have been taught. It is strange, but it is tough to identify churches in Bulgaria that live with the vision for reproducing disciples and not just making converts.
We are looking for US ministry partners already involved in the Discipleship Multiplication Movement and have working DMM models. We invite them to come alongside our ministry and be a catalyst for DMM in Bulgaria.
