Why Denominations Can’t Fulfill the Great Commission (Part 1) with David Watson

Why Denominations Can’t Fulfill the Great Commission (Part 1) with David Watson

April 5, 2021
It's all about multiplication, not replication. It's easy to assume that our particular church will appeal to everyone and work in every culture. That's just not the case. In order to reproduce the Gospel, we have to get out of our denominational box. 
 
David Watson joins us today to talk about how to know if a church is planted right. It doesn't have to do with our preferred flavor of church, but rather obedience.

“I Will” Statements That Will Ruin Your DBS

“I Will” Statements That Will Ruin Your DBS

March 29, 2021
An "I Will" statement is your answer to one of the most important questions in a Discovery Bible Study, "If this passage is from God, how must we change?" An "I Will" statement can make or break your DBS. The difference between being a convert and a disciple is obedience.
 
So here are some applications people often give that can be detrimental to a fruitful Discovery Group, and how to respond to them!  
 
To learn more about "I Will" statements, check out our original podcast about them.

Reaching Groups Rather than Individuals (Part 1)

Reaching Groups Rather than Individuals (Part 1)

March 8, 2021
Everyone is a doorway to a community or a family. Often in our attempts to "Christianize" one person, we miss out on reaching their entire family or community for Christ.  David Watson joins us in this episode to explain why this is and an alternative way of thinking. How do you flow from one person to their family? Why use stories instead of a presentation? All this and more on the CDM Podcast!

Guiding Repentance and Baptism with David Watson

Guiding Repentance and Baptism with David Watson

February 22, 2021
"If it becomes a conversion experience, it's about a religion, not about a relationship with God." This episode is about the moments of decision—believing, repenting, and being baptized. The Discovery Bible Study helps them on the path of discovery. How do we get to a decision? And how do we get to that decision naturally, as a group? What's the wrong way to do it? Hear David Watson's experience in leading people to decide to follow Jesus and how you can do the same in your own neighborhood.

Engaging Unbelievers During Lockdown (Part 1)

Engaging Unbelievers During Lockdown (Part 1)

February 15, 2021
A global lockdown doesn't give us a pass on living out the Great Commission and Great Commandments. Restrictions can make us retreat from the frontlines. But do circumstances really prevent us from doing God's will? In this episode, we show you how it's not only possible to make disciples in this time, but might even be the best time to! It's just about having the faith to step out and do it. We have countless stories of people who have stepped out with this kind of faith!

Habits of Mentally Strong Disciple Makers (Part 2)

Habits of Mentally Strong Disciple Makers (Part 2)

February 2, 2021

The enemy likes to nudge us into patterns of thinking that are unhelpful and destructive. Eventually, our thinking affects our actions. Actions influenced by negative thinking destroy everything around us. That's why we need to be mentally strong as disciple makers, especially in times of high stress and isolation. In this episode, we talk about what mental strength looks like and how it applies to making disciples. We need to learn how to identify our weak spots and areas in which we are resistant to change.

We're starting a CDM book club and you're invited! We're starting in February with the book "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do" by Amy Morin. Email team@contagiousdisciplemaking.com to join the book club!

Creating Safe Spaces for Discovery (Part 1)

Creating Safe Spaces for Discovery (Part 1)

January 20, 2021

We want to have conversations that lead our non-believing friends to discover God. But it can be difficult to get there. We need to create a safe space for them to actually want to engage in that way. In today's episode, Paul and Rebecca go over 3 ways to create those safe spaces: preparing by mobilizing prayer, building relationships with unbelievers through friendship and conversation, and creating space for open conversation. It takes time and some topics can be tough, but we're in the business of loving real people with real stories.
