The Great Commission is to make disciples. Renowned church planter and pastor Ralph Moore shows leaders why a focus on making disciples is the essential next step once a church is planted. This biblical, practical handbook will guide churches of any size to focus their ministries around Jesus command to His followers to make disciples of all nations. Making Disciples offers a model of church ministry that sees every member as a minister, and it will become an indispensable resource for equipping a new generation of disciple-makers.
Ralph Moore is the senior pastor of Hope Chapel Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii and the founder of Hope Chapel in Hermosa Beach, California. His ministry now spans more than 700 churches on 6 continents and also includes the books Starting a New Church and How to Multiply Your Church. Pastor Moore travels extensively teaching pastors and church leaders biblical models for spreading the gospel and building Christs kingdom. He and his wife, Ruby, have two adult children who are also involved in church multiplication.
Ralph writes as a pastor who has a global vision. His church has planted 70 churches, and he is the catalyst for a movement of around 700 churches on every continent. For Ralph, making disciples is about who you are and what you do, and this book is filled with stories and cases studies from Ralphs own experience. The most important lesson I learned was that we can do this, and we can start right now.
The Western Church needs a radical intervention to reverse its current trend of decline. Ralph Moore is a modern-day prophet whose direct and, at times, abrasive style will work like sandpaper to peel back the layers that prevent the Church from fulfilling its mission. He calls us out in a righteous way, back to discipleship, and I applaud him for it.
The fruit of an emphasis on intentional disciplemakinga movement of 700 congregations since 1971speaks for itself and uniquely qualifies Ralph Moore to write on this topic. Designed for ordinary believers, this practical and inspiring book describes principles that, if implemented, will result in new followers of Jesus and healthy, multiplying churches. It is a challenging read that will help all understand that making converts isnt the same as making disciples.
Ralph knows that disciplemaking is core to church planting and Gods mission, and he has the practical know-how to share this truth through compelling stories that illustrate how disciplemaking happens. His stories are filled with truth from the Bible, led by the Spirit, and focus on the essential ingredient of disciplemaking: building relationships. I urge you to read this book, drink deeply from Ralphs wisdom, and begin reproducing disciples to fulfill the Lords vision for your life!
Ralph Moore is a leader who doesnt set his smartphone navigator on the revivals of the past but looks at the decidedly non-sexy craft of discipleship. Doing the journeyman work of a gospel preacher, Ralph does the right thing in focusing on this most important insight: the individuals we are discipling are more than worth the trouble, regardless of the outcome or results. Do not miss this book. Keep the main thing the main thing!
Ralphs uncanny ability to see potential in an ordinary person like myself and others is a gift from the Lord, but it also comes from his intentional approach to look beyond what others see and to probe where others might not care to explore. Making Disciples takes the mystery and program out of the process and puts it back into the hands of us all. Its a simple title for a simple process. Thats how you leave a legacy like Ralph Moore.
In Making Disciples, Ralph shares great stories and gives fresh inspiration and insight for building disciplemaking churches that reproduce and change peoples lives. He believes every healthy church reproduces more churches, every passionate leader reproduces more leaders, and every fully devoted disciple of Jesus makes more disciplesand tells how we can all do that. Great job, Ralph!

Making disciples is everybodys business. Ralph Moores genius for realness and simplicity makes me want to go and make disciples right nowin fact, more than ever before. Everybody should do it. Everybody can do it. And, in this book, Ralph Moore strips away the fluff, drills down to stuff and teaches us how to do it. Read it, and youll want to get to it! Buy a bunch and spread the word!
I love making disciples in Japan, so I was so excited to read Ralph Moores book on discipleship in the local church. Pastor Ralph is not only a great pastor but also a great developer of pastors and church planters. He is the real deal! This book will motivate you and give you practical how-tos in making disciples.
Based on the amazing work Ralph has done in seeing countless people begin to believe in Jesus, and then launching scads of new churches, he is on my short list of living heroes. Ralph just might be the most capable voice youll connect with in this life regarding the development and care of disciples. As I read this book, only one regret occurred to me: Making Disciples should have been written a few decades ago when I first started to follow Jesus!
Ralph is the real deal. He walks the talk, lives the life and is a passionate discipler who believes that discipleship is the only way. It is Plan A, and there is no Plan B. This is the true and urgent need for the hour. We need an army of disciples and disciplers, and Ralph knows this business.
