3 Steps To Multiply Yourself

A practical guide for YOUR everyday personal ministry:

Usually, a strategy of a business, a nonprofit or a specific movement is one that will fulfill only the vision of that entity that will take them to their vision. Jesus, though, rather has a guide for your life that will reproduce yourself as a disciple of Christ into someone that you know.  This guide summed up in three words is how the mission work we pioneered is growing all over the Dallas / Ft. Worth metroplex.  But the beauty of this guide is that any young professional and YOU can run with this strategy in your everyday life and bear much fruit and results!  Here is the three part guide that the greatest leader in history, Jesus, activated and shared to multiply Himself! You can do this as well:

1.  MEET:
Jesus spent most vocational ministry intentionally with the twelve disciples:  “Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him (Luke‬ ‭8:1‬).”  Today, we call “being with” someone “meeting with them”. Like Jesus, YOU can meet with a peer “right where YOU live, work and play” and get to know their story, study the Bible with them, pray with them and invite them into your intentional discipleship community. Be intentional at starting a spiritual journey with a friend.

Meeting with the disciples was not the end point in how Jesus loved the twelve.  He loved them so much that after Jesus called the disciples together, He sent them out to do with others what He did with them!  Jesus mobilized them:  “Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick (‭‭Luke‬ ‭9:1).” Jesus did not cripple the disciples by creating a consuming relationship that they just learned from Him.  Unfortunately, much of the Christian  culture does this. Contrarily, Jesus blessed the disciples with purpose and mobilized them to intentionally invest in others.  YOU can also bless the ones you intentionally invest in by mobilizing them to invest in their friends.  See how the apostle Paul did this with his friend, Timothy: “You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others (2 Timothy 2:2).”  In fact, did you see in this verse what the result of meeting and mobilizing is?

Believe it or not, this is the EASY step!  YOU actually do NOTHING in this step.  “After these things the Lord appointed seventy-two others also, and sent them two by two into every city and place where He Himself was about to go (‭‭Luke‬ ‭10:1).”  Have you done the math yet?  The twelve from Luke 9:1 multiplied by six! Multiplying is the mere result of meeting and mobilizing!  Jesus shares a parable to explain this multiplication: “Jesus said, ‘What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it? It is like a tiny mustard seed that a man planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make nests in its branches.’”  The Kingdom of God, by default, is made to grow.

Are you living the religious consuming event-driven spiritual life? Or are you experiencing the blessing of making reproducing disciples by investing in friends and encouraging them to do the same.  Jesus intentionally met, mobilized and His disciples multiplied exponentially. Now, you and I are saved!  Who are you going to start intentionally meeting, mobilizing in order to multiply yourself, a follower of Jesus?  What is your first step? Comment below.

Many ask me how this mission work among young professionals has grown all over the metroplex.  Twenties and thirties are equipped and mobilized to intentionally meet with their friends, mobilizing their friends to do the same, then the organic result is the multiplication of disciple-makers.  They do this through the Intentional Discipleship Communities we’ve launched all over the metroplex.
But this is only made possible through people like YOU who support this ministry financially.  All giving is tax deductible.  Consider being a monthly or year-end donor hoping us meet our important goal. Please click here, Meet, mobilize and multiply with us.

How Prayer Mobilizes YOUR Personal Ministry!

Drop it in the virtual prayer box:

Since the launch of my own personal ministry 21 years ago, this truth has been the fuel to witnessing Jesus touching lives through my life:

“Now to Him who is able to do far MORE abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, ACCORDING to the power that works WITHIN us (Ephesians 3:20).”

Your everyday life is critical to God’s Kingdom. We launched Mobilize Ministries on January 1, 2018 because YOUR LIFE is the MOST impacting ministry we know! It was incredible when I realized that each person in each circumstance of my life is there for me to love and to share the Good News of Jesus with through my words and actions! What a purpose for an everyday life! The Apostle Paul describes it well in Ephesians 2:10: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

One aspect of Mobilize Ministries is to mobilize you into community, that we’ve coined Intentional Discipleship Community, to process through your personal ministry and to receive encouragement, edification, and innovative ideas for your everyday personal ministry. But most of all, there’s access to more fuel for your personal ministry in community that Jesus explains much better than I could: “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18: 19-20).

To launch you into praying with others for people that God has put in your personal ministry path, we in Mobilize Ministries are starting a virtual prayer box! Twenty years ago in the campus ministry I was in at the University of Oklahoma, there was a prayer box that students would drop in names of friends they were sharing Jesus with. In result, people came to Jesus and returned to Jesus. But before I came onto the scene I was one of the names in the prayer box. They prayed for me. One of them, Gordon, moved with compassion and faith started knocking on my dorm door. I was empty and alone. Gordon invested in my life and invited me into community. Through prayer and Gordon acting in faith according to the power at work within him, I became one of the ones dropping prayer requests for my friends into the prayer box, pursuing them with God’s love and seeing friends through my personal ministry come to Christ.

Let’s get prayer mobilizing your personal ministry RIGHT NOW! Click HERE and drop your personal ministry prayer request in this prayer box. We will pray for them by first name! Prayer ministries is one of the many ministry in Mobilize Ministries. Who in your life are you going to meet with regularly to encourage, process, edify and to innovate your personal ministry with? Contact me for help on how to do this.

Please comment or share questions below. May God mobilize your personal ministry MORE abundantly beyond all that you and your friends ask or think, ACCORDING to the power that works WITHIN you!

Discipleship, Not Just A College Thing

This weekend I was blessed with an opportunity to meet with some 20s  who were in the Navigators ministry with me while I served on staff at the University of North Texas.  Now they are continuing their journey as life-long laborers for Jesus living out the Nav20s Four Pursuits:

  • Pursuing Christ with all your heart.
  • Honoring Him in your workplace, job or profession.
  • Living and discipling among those who need Christ, especially your peers.
  • Teaming up with others of like heart and purpose… “side by side.”


The Navigators calling is not just a “college thing”.  The Navigators vision is God’s vision of making life-long laborers:

To advance the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations through spiritual generations of laborers living and discipling among the lost.

A life-long laborer…

  • Not only strives to know Christ more and make Him known.
  • Not only is intentional to be discipled and invest in someone, making a disciple.

But a life-long laborer dedicates a life-long commitment of making disciples in every stage of life “right where they are.”

Are you a life-long laborer?  Are you experiencing the joy and blessing of investing into someone who will disciple someone else?  Who is God putting on your heart to disciple you or to disciple?

1. E-mail me about getting involved in the Nav20s as a 20 or as a professional mentor to a 20.

2. Become a prayer partner in our mission work among 20s.
