In order to accomplish the Gen1K vision of 1000 healthy churches by the year 2050, it will be vital to establish of a culture of disciple-making across our movement. This will be a culture that places the process of making disciples front and centre in the work of our churches and affiliated groups. The Discipleship Taskforce was established to envision and recommend strategies to achieve this aim.
What drives the need to lift our attention to discipleship? First, is the awareness that this central focus of Christian mission has become blurred among many churches in our movement. Second, there is a re-affirmation of the importance of discipleship across large parts of the global Christian community.
