The Great Commission
summons us
to a new beginning.

Jesus says to his disciples:

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. 
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.


Many experts conclude there is a growing discipleship crisis.
Here are three:
  • “...we have done a miserable job of making disciples.” (Greg Ogden)

  • “Stunningly few churches have a church of disciples.” (George Barna).

  • “Nondiscipleship is the elephant in the church.” (Dallas Willard).

  • There is a centuries-old proven solution to our discipleship crisis, and I would love to tell you about it.

    John B. MacDonald has developed a robust course based on Matthew’s Gospel, a paradigm for discipleship. John rightly sees discipleship and humble obedience as the deep structure of Scripture.

    What Others are Saying

    I went home hungry to dig into Matthew and your book is a tool that has not been set down as I am desiring to become a disciple maker, due in large part to your sessions and example. 

    There is a lot of "noise" on the subject of discipleship in the church these days, and it was nice to study the original "how to" manuscript on the subject. 

    [The workbook] is an indispensable tool of study if one is to get the full scope and context of the application.

    Very relevant.

    This theme of obedience to God is EXCELLENT. I cannot stop thinking about it.

    The quality is very high, and clearly the result of a lot of careful study and thought.
