Indonesian Christian Becomes a Disciple Maker



Paul and Rachel work in Indonesia with the vision of equipping locals to reach out to their own communities. They understand that locals are much more effective and can cover more ground than global workers ever could. In order to see this vision come to life, they travel around and train groups in church planting and discipleship strategies. 

Recently, they taught at a small village church, where they met a lady named Diah. She was already actively sharing the Good News with her community, but wasn’t sure what to do after sharing. Through the training, she learned the Biblical pattern for planting churches and discipleship, and felt a renewed excitement for the Great Commission. Since that training, she has shared with many people, baptized 20 people, and started three groups that will hopefully become house churches. 

The goal for church planting movements is to see many generations of believers and house churches spread. As someone disciples new believers, they encourage those believers to share and start their own group. Then the new groups can also grow and lead to other groups. Paul and Rachel hope to meet many more people like Diah with a passion for sharing the Good News and multiplying house churches.

Ways to Pray

  • Pray that God would lead Paul and Rachel to many more people like Diah who are passionate about multiplication
  • That Diah would continue to disciple the new believers and her groups, and that these groups would continue to grow and multiply
  • Pray for more church planting movements to take place all over Indonesia

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:14-15
