Third in a series of five lessons based on my book Kingdom Driven Discipleship - Making Disciples in the Middle of the Harvest Field. Presented at the Okoboji Lakes Bible and Missionary Conference in August, 2010. Read more about Kingdom Driven Discipleship.

The United States is becoming a non church-going culture.

Generally speaking, reaching new people for Jesus isn't going to happen in a church service. In light of this reality, how can we learn to make disciples wherever people live, work and play?

When these audio lessons were recorded, each person had a copy of Kingdom-Driven Discipleship. These audio classes have been edited to focus on the main idea. There are no natural breaks between major sections. If you are using these audio lessons in your small group, listen carefully so that you can periodically stop the recording to discuss the ideas presented with your group.

The audio lessons contain only the application and explanation of lessons in Kingdom Driven Discipleship. To maximize your experience, read Kingdom-Driven Discipleship before listening to the audio lesson.

  • Viewing your job as your kingdom assignment and your office as your kingdom outpost
  • Building relationships with non-Christians through being a servant and friend
