Event Details

At the Multiply Gathering, THIS FRIDAY  NIGHT FROM 7-10pm both David Platt and Francis Chan will exhort us from God’s Word on the topic of making disciples. We will be encouraged to make disciples who, in turn, disciple others in the truths of the gospel. In addition to these addresses, David and Francis will be interviewed on the topic of discipleship.

This evening will also include a time of confession, where we admit to the Lord our sins and weaknesses in the area of making disciples. Following this time of confession, there will be a time of commitment, when we go to the Lord in prayer, asking Him to empower us anew to obey the Great Commission. We will be encouraged to be intentional and specific as we seek to identify others whom we can disciple.

Note: No child care will be provided, but you may bring your children if you can supervise them and keep them quiet enough so that people can participate in the simulcast. 

 

Jesus’ command to make disciples in the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) was not intended solely for the early disciples, nor is disciple-making the responsibility of a special class of Christians. Rather, all followers of Christ are called to make disciples, to fish for men (Matthew 4:19). Many don’t actively make disciples because they don’t know what it means to be a disciple.

On a practical level discipleship means that we look at other people and say exactly what Jesus said to his disciples: “Follow me.” To make disciples is to intentionally show the life of Christ before others, to share the gospel of Christ with others, to teach the Word of Christ to others, and to do all of this with a view toward reaching every people group in the world with the gospel.

Our desire is to come alongside local churches by emphasizing this glorious and much-neglected aspect of our calling as followers of Christ. With Multiply we want to encourage because some are unaware of their biblical responsibility to make disciples, and we want to equip because many do not know how to make disciples.

We want to help make disciples by providing resources and materials that introduce foundational biblical topics for those seeking to learn God’s Word with the intent to disciple others. Multiply does this in several ways:

The Multiply WebsiteThe website is a central hub that contains resources to help you as you make disciples.

The Multiply MaterialThe Multiply Material is a 24-session discipleship experience where one person helps another understand what it means to follow Jesus, study scripture, and be the church. This material is available online and includes coaching videos and additional resources to assist you as you study through the course.

The Multiply GatheringThe Gathering is a once-a-year simulcast with Francis Chan and David Platt that fuels the purpose of Multiply. We want to gather together with other followers of Christ in their local churches and homes and encourage one another in the disciple-making process.
