The Great Commission describes a disciple as one who has been baptized, is intentionally learning to trust and follow Jesus, and is going into the world to represent Christ and make other disciples. World Partners is committed to helping leaders formulate and implement disciple-making strategies in their local settings. These strategies begin with connecting to non-believers, then winning them to Christ, leading them through a disciple making experience until they begin to seek and develop their own disciples. World Partners challenges all disciple makers with the goal of making disciples to the fourth generation, a model illustrated in various Biblical passages.
Currently, there are thirty-five discipleship movements connected to World Partners. A disciple-making movement forms out of a group of people with a disciple making passion and worldview. These people participate in formal and informal actions that make disciples and they are able to multiply disciples out to the fourth generation.
