Author’s Testimonial

"I've hired Mathew Sims to be an editor every opportunity I could, and I'll continue to do so. His editing on paper speaks for itself, but the best part of working is Mathew is that he's kind, patient, and a hard-worker."

About Make, Mature, Multiply

Discipleship is a word most Christians know, but few can define. Is discipleship about reading the Bible or praying every day? Is it about sharing the gospel with strangers? Is it about striving to be like Jesus? While these are aspects of being a disciple, Scripture tells us that there is much more.

Make, Mature, Multiply aims to help you become a disciple who truly understands the full joy of following Jesus. With a wide range of chapters from some of today's most battle-tested disciple-makers, this book is designed for any Christian seeking to know more about being a fully-formed disciple of Jesus who makes, matures, and multiplies fully-formed disciples of Jesus. Contributors include:

  • Alvin L. Reid on family discipleship
  • Tony Merida on preaching to make disciples
  • Jonathan K. Dodson on the disciple's identity in Christ
  • Jeff Vanderstelt on gospel hospitality
