Several years ago, I participated in discussions that led to renaming the term “Church Planting Movements (CPM)” to “Disciple Making Movements (DMM).” This was an attempt to more accurately define these movements around the core value of disciple making. It was not the beginning of such movements. It was simply a redefining of something that God was already doing in many countries around the world.
Before the term DMM (or Disciple Making Movements) was coined, I had personally been pursuing movements of the gospel for over 22 years. My journey has not been fleeting nor shallow. Quite the contrary. Those of us who have seen movements actually start, have stories of failure, perseverance, disappointment and slow success.
