My journey as disciple and disciple maker -- What is a disciple anyway? -- Disciples let God lead from the invisible world -- Disciples hear and obey -- Disciples develop relational interdependence -- Disciples do what love requires -- Disciples make disciples -- Leaders equip disciples for ministry -- Disciples live an undivided life -- Disciples engage in personal and cultural transformation -- Disciples keep the end in mind -- Disciples organize flexibly and purposefully -- Glimpses of a disciple-making community.

Culture affects how we make disciples. We often unconsciously bring our own cultural assumptions into ministry and mission, not realizing that how we think and operate is not necessarily the best or only way to do things. In today's global environment, disciplemaking requires the cultural humility and flexibility to adapt between different cultural approaches. Charles Davis, former director of TEAM, provides a framework for missional disciplemaking across diverse cultural contexts. He shows how we can recalibrate our ministry efforts, like adjusting sound levels on a mixer board, to accommodate.
