Looking Back

It was the fall of 2015. We were seeking to understand disciple-making movement (DMM) strategies. We wanted to help others understand the best practices of becoming a disciple worth reproducing, so we did our best to choose topics and form them into daily segments. The More Disciples 30-Day Challenge was born, but frankly, it was somewhat random. We didn’t yet know the big picture. And we sure didn’t understand how to implement everything that we were learning.

But we launched. We didn’t let the excellent stand in the way of the good. And hundreds of people started taking part. It was super-early in the development of online learning tools for DMM.

The Birth of Zume

Shortly afterward (Feb. 14, 2017), Zume launched its online learning approach as a companion. Zume thought leaders told us, “You guys at the 30-Day Challenge led the way in catering to individuals. Let’s let Zume lead the way in helping groups.”

Now, 7 years later, Zume has become the de facto online training tool. More Disciples (the book) was released in 2017 as a partnering tool – helping others take the journey we took in really grasping and applying DMM practices. In a recent remake of the More Disciples 30-Day Challenge, we looked back and completely reworked the 30-Day Challenge to correlate even more closely with Zume’s thoughtful, pithy, and fast-paced training videos. And thankfully, the Zume thought leaders were kind enough to give us direct access to stage their videos directly from our site.

A New Challenge

So today (and going forward), when you sign up for the 30-Day Challenge, you’re actually signing up for a complete journey through the life and best practices of launching an entire disciple-making movement in complete coordination with Zume training as well. Give it a try. We think you’ll love it – and we hope it’ll help you completely embrace DMM practices in your life.

Even if you did the 30-Day Challenge previously, we’d encourage you to try it again. Become a disciple worth reproducing. Impact your life, your family, and your community for Christ. May God bless you as you do so! Click here to sign up.
