North America for Christ
The World Evangelical Alliance, Mission America Coalition, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and International Evangelism welcome you to the North America for Christ web site. Our partnership’s initial prayer goal is to equip three million lifestyle Christian disciple-makers to multiply spiritually through New Testament disciple-making!
“Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.” (Mark 4:8)
In support of this Great Commission planning, we are pleased that participating denominations and Baptist state conventions will receive a series of designated ministry grants made possible by gifts to the National Christian Foundation. It is seldom that an effort of this magnitude requires no budget funding. However, our North American plan is uniquely underwritten with up to 30 million dollars in financial assistance supporting this United States and Canadian ministry initiative. The series of foundation grants will be made semi-annually in celebration of each participating denomination’s and Baptist state convention’s progress!
To our knowledge, the dynamic ministry vision being presented represents the largest life-to-life disciple-making effort of its kind in North American history! Already, over 200 denominations in Central America, South America, Europe and Asia are participating.
What is “Becoming a Disciple-Maker?”
2 TIMOTHY 2:2
“And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2)
New believers and members require much more than a handshake when they join your church. They need a Christ-centered friendship with someone who will walk by their side and make them feel welcome. This new friend should be prepared to introduce them to other church members, answer their questions, lead them to a small group Bible study, and serve as a role model for their spiritual growth.
“Becoming a Disciple-Maker’s” mission is to help churches train disciple-makers to personally befriend and equip each new member with the needed ministry skills to enjoy a lifetime of spiritual growth and evangelistic multiplication.
Most churches simply hope their new members find a dedicated Christian friend and learn the basics of spiritual growth. They also hope their new members will attend a small group Bible study and learn how to share their faith. However, instead of hoping – many growth minded churches are now establishing an intentional process which will ensure that every new believer and new member receives the personal care and instruction they need. This is the heart of the “Becoming a Disciple-Maker” strategy!
For years, churches have been overlooking their most valuable resource for evangelism – new believers. Why are new believers so special in terms of evangelism? Because they still have natural relationship bridges with non-Christians. When we walk with these new members and show them how to grow spiritually and share their faith, they begin to witness and spiritual multiplication takes place naturally.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in the faith just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” (Colossians 2:6 & 7)
