What: Disciple Making Workshop
Most of us are familiar with the term discipleship. “Operation Multiplication’s” ministry focuses on two more descriptive terms, disciple-making and Christian mentoring. What sets these two terms, discipleship and disciple-making apart?
· Discipleship typically describes traditional Christian education in general
· Disciple-making describes effective Christian follow up by establishing a one-to-one Christian mentoring process at your church.
An introduction to “Operation Multiplication’s” Christian mentoring process: A group of more mature believers are selected and trained to become certified disciple-makers. When a new Christian or new member joins your church, they are offered a friendship with one of these trained disciple-makers. They meet one-to-one once per week, usually for coffee, breakfast, lunch, or dinner for about 1 ½ hours and learn to develop spiritual growth skills. The goal is for each new Christian to establish a friendship – become a self-feeder from the Word of God – grow spiritually – and then share their faith with others resulting in spiritual multiplication!
On Thursday and Friday 11-12 April, IBC Berlin will host Mark Wagner and Willi Daiker of Operation Mobilization Germany who will introduce us to the Operation Multiplication Christian mentoring process. Here’s what you can expect:
- An inspirational message on disciple-making
- An introduction to the Operation Mobilization disciple-making process
- An overview of the use of Operation Mobilization follow up and disciple-making materials

Thursday 21.03.2013 — We pray that would use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) responsibly and creatively to promote the gospel truth of Jesus Christ. The promise is that God’s word will not return empty — so we pray that God will produce the fruit of salvation and Christlike character through modern technology (Isaiah 55:11).
Wednesday 20.03.2013 — We pray that government leaders would have the wisdom to make laws that are genuinely just, laws that appropriately balance individual rights with community responsibility…laws that promote human rights at home and encourage human rights abroad.
Pray for those in leadership in sport and culture. Ask God to give these leaders discernment to recognize gifts in young people and encourage them to develop their God-given talents in sports, arts, music, etc. Pray that God will raise up God-called Christians who will use these culturally popular expressions to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Today — the last full day of the project — the Berlin youth team will be doing some refurbishing work for a Christian outreach cafe in Friedrichshain then going to Alexanderplatz for our second street outreach. Pray that the team will raise awareness of authentic, experiential faith in Jesus Christ and have opportunities to share their stories of following Jesus.
Tonight ALL of the McKinney groups from Germany and Poland will gather at IBC Berlin for dinner, a celebration “Quake,” and a youth lock-in before they head back home early on Friday morning.
