discipleship program is uniquely designed to make disciples for Christ
using the Word and a simple process of multiplication while increasing your

Identify, in a way you can come back to for review, what
scripture from today’s reading that will help me make 12
disciples for Jesus. You may want to highlight the scripture in your
bible or you may want to write it out – however you can best come back for
reminder and review.
Will you please share another simple, effective way to talk
to people about joining my 12 for Jesus family?
Servant: Of course. First tell me what you’ve learned so far
about talking to people about 12 for Jesus.
D: Always get permission by first asking, “May I ask
you a question?”
S: Right. Is it working for you?
D: Yes, very well. It opens the door. All my Christian
friends have said, “Sure”.

made for Jesus?” or “Have you heard about 12 for Jesus?”

“In John 3:16
it says: ‘God so loved the people of this world that He gave His only
Son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal
S: What do I say
“You want to spend eternity in Heaven, don’t you?”
S: When people say
“Yes”, do I
lead them in a short prayer of salvation?
D: Yes, have them
repeat something easy like this:
“God, I have faith in Your Son, Jesus
Christ. Thank you that I will spend eternity in Heaven with You.”
S: That is
easy. Then do I tell them about the 12 for Jesus training and invite
them to join my 12?

S: I’ll practice this John 3:16 approach a couple
times with my friend and then use it with others this week. Thanks!

Holy Spirit will give you the boldness to simply say, “May I ask
you a question?”
