Are You a D.M.?

I always thought it would be cool to have a name that had initials after it.  You know what I mean.  Doctors have them, Dentists have them and others professions flaunt them when there is opportunity.  If I asked you asked you what an M.D. is you would probably know.  If I asked you what a Ph.D. is you would probably know but what about a D.M.?  What is a D.M. you ask?  You need only go to the pages of Scriptures to realize that one of the most prestigious degrees a person can get is a Masters of Disciplemaking.  The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) lays out a degree program that any believer can achieve and to be honest is expected to achieve.  I was talking to a buddy of mine the other day and asked him how many non-clergy disciplemakers (D.M.) did he know and we both sat there for a while and realized that we didn’t know of many (actually we couldn’t think of any though we know they are out there).  Doctors are a dime a dozen and everybody knows who they are (and we need everyone of them) but the harvest is plentiful and D.M.s are few.  By now you are probably wondering what I mean by a disciple-maker.  In simple terms a disciple-maker (D.M.) is an expert in evangelism, an expert in establishing of young believers in their faith and an expert in equipping young ministers in the disciplemaking.  Where have all the laborers gone?

In simple terms a disciple-maker (D.M.) is an expert in evangelism, an expert in establishing of young believers in their faith and an expert in equipping young ministers in the art of disciplemaking.
