Disciple-Making Happens Best in Community

00070 00120

00070 00121Last week, Asian Access hosted our latest session in Sri Lanka. Our focus was on disciple-making and while there was a great deal of conversation and learning together about discipleship, one of the core distinctions of this week was the importance of making disciples within community.

Pastor Garrick Hanger from Rolling Hills Covenant Church highlighted this as part of his teaching. He highlighted how leading others to follow Jesus and learning to follow Christ ourselves can only be done in the context of community. He stated:

"This cannot be done alone... We need the body of Christ!"

Virukshan Perera summarized the week this way:

"Had an amazing time in the spirit with pastors around the country from various denominations committed to Love Jesus. Such a blessed fellowship to be a part of even as we pray and work together beyond denominational, ethnic and national boundries to take the Love of God to Asia and beyond."

I was so inspired by the leaders this week. Many of them have faced persecution for their commitment to Christ: some have been beaten, others their churches were burned down, and several have been harassed. In the midst of these trials, they have stood firm and it is in the midst of this vibrant community that they are growing deeper together and seeking to better disciple-makers in the midst of their communities.

Do you practice disciple-making in your community? If so, what have you learned?

Polycentric Leadership

Leading Polycentrically in Mission

By Joseph W. Handley, Jr.

POLYCENTRICISM AND MISSION

As the world struggles with mounting tensions, I am convinced that we need a new approach to leadership. This year in particular, these issues leaped in front of us as a global pandemic hit our world, the economy faltered, and political tensions rose in areas we all thought would be more peaceful. All of these challenges were compounded by a crisis of leadership, facilitating disruptive political engines with the forces of globalism, nationalism, and tribalism driving the world.1 These concerns compelled me to see if another form of leadership could be helpful to the world in which we lead. And just as my research on this idea came to a close, the world seemed to rupture ever further in 2020 and these early days of 2021.

Polycentric Leadership: a leadership model for a polarized world 

The past thirteen months have been one of the most disruptive seasons in my lifetime. A global pandemic, one of the worst economies of the century, and a divisive political environment were all contributors. We have faced lock downs, loss of incomes and jobs, and the disease itself—as we still do at this time.
