Overview

How did the early church raise up leaders and servants when they had no seminaries or training schools? Why were they so vital that they grew in a way never seen since the first century? Maybe we should take a look at the ancient method of mentoring that built quality into people's lives, instead of warehousing numbers who passively absorb what the professionals dish up?
McCallum and Lowery serve in one of the most successful discipleship-based churches in America. Over a combined sixty years, they have raised up leaders of hundreds of house churches in Xenos Christian Fellowship in Columbus, Ohio.
This is not a curriculum for making disciples.

Forget about formulas for making disciples.

Avoid high-control, "shepherding" theories of discipleship.

This is an approach that grows the organic way: out of love relationships and real community.

Organic Disciplemaking is biblical. It comes out of the life of both a person and a fellowship—The Xenos Fellowsh. The church is a witness to all Dennis is talking about. I know Dennis; I know the church and am always inspired when I go there. I have said many times that this church represents authentic New Testament Christianity. It comes at a crucial time in the history of our church, a time when we are making Christians without discipling them.
