Disciplemaking Pastors—Part 2

John Vanne is a youth pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria, IL. He's on the right above.

John did something CRAZY recently.

On a Saturday morning, John pulled together some of the volunteers who serve in youth ministry with him... and get this: He encouraged them and trained them. See pic below.
Like I said, John is crazy... crazy like Jesus.

Here's how he started the training...
See what John's doing here? 

The phrases highlighted inside the actual prayer correspond to one (or more) of the passages of Scripture at the top. Where the colors match is where that part of the prayer has it's genesis in the Bible.

It turns out that The Disciplemaker's Prayer is way more than a prayer.  It's a fun, short Bible study for a cadre of disciplemaking friends and a way of life that is experienced together and shared with others.

Dream with me for minute. How might God answer this prayer?

What would that look like?

What could happen if every volunteer ministry leader in John's youth ministry lived out The Disciplemaker's prayer and actually made a disciple—who makes more disciples?

Better yet...
What might God do in your life if you dared to do this training exercise with you family, small group, Sunday School, Bible study, ministry, elders, pastoral staff, etc,?

I dare you to find out.

(This pic from Community Free Church, Mahomet, IL.)

Let me know how God answers your prayer so I can celebrate God with you!

Heavenly Father, please give every church pastors and volunteer ministry leaders who make disciples—who make more disciples, ad infinitum.
In Jesus' name, amen.

More here if you dare...

I Never Cease to Be Amazed by God...

Early in our marriage, my wife went grocery shopping. Though I was employed in a full-time job, our income at that time was considered poverty level. Yes, we lived on love and a very tight budget. When Stacy came home from the grocery store, she said, "I was able to buy everything we planned except potatoes. I wanted to stick to our budget."

I said, "Thanks for sticking to the budget. We can do without potatoes. We'll be fine."

Those words were barely out of my mouth when someone knocked at our door. It was a dear friend from our church who lived across the back alley. Holding a large bag in her arms she said, "I bought too many potatoes at the store today. Would you like some?" 

Mind. Blown. 

I never cease to be amazed by God provision via His people.

That true story is a microcosm of how God has provided—and continues to provide—for us, our larger-than-normal family, and our ministry with Cadre Missionaries to this day.

September 2019 marks the 17th birthday/anniversary of Cadre Missionaries!

For 17 years, God and YOU have made it possible for us, as Cadre Missionaries, to multiply Jesus-like disciplemaking friendships here and around the world.

And make no mistake: We still need your help.


In honor of our 17th birthday, would you please prayerfully consider donating a special gift of $17 or more?


Those of you who know us know that we don't often ask for financial support like this. However, on our 17th anniversary as a ministry, we need your $ help, so we're asking God's people—like you—to join us in this disciplemaking adventure.

We'd love to see 300 of our friends respond with a special gift of $17. That would bless Cadre with $5,100 much needed dollars for our disciplemaking mission.

Will YOU be one of our 300 friends?

To donate $17 securely and immediately online, go here.
* Mail a check: Cadre Missionaries, PO Box 278, Sycamore, IL 60178

Other giving options...
To give more than $17 securely and immediately online, go here.
To support a Cadre missionary on a monthly basis, go here.
* For questions and more info, please call Rennie at 815.501.3132.

Note: Cadre Missionaries is a recognized 501(c)3 not-for-profit ministry and all gifts are tax deductible.
Please take a moment to read the Scripture on the pic above.

If you've never financially supported Cadre Missionaries before, this would be a great first step. If you're already a $ partner with God and Cadre, then please prayerfully consider an additional $17.

In a ministry like ours, every dollar makes a huge difference. Each gift—no matter the size—is a huge encouragement, much needed, and greatly appreciated.

Because Cadre seeks to make disciplemakers, only Heaven will reveal the full impact of your partnership.

We really are your Cadre Missionaries. You really are God's wind in our Cadre sails. Thank you for celebrating 17 years of Jesus-like disciplemaking with us and to God be the glory!

Bill Allison
Executive Director for the Cadre team
p.s. If anyone reading this is able to help us by giving an initial matching grant for others to match, that would be a huge help! Please call us at 815.501.3132.
From the rest of our Cadre Missionaries, thank you!

Disciplemaking Pastors—Part 1

Meet Pastor Joe Horn, Chillicothe Bible Church, IL.
"Bill, I love being a part of Peoria Area Leadership Community (PALC) and look forward being a part of the PALC Ongoing gatherings. PALC is the most encouraging thing in my life right now. Thanks for investing your life in pastors and ministry leaders like me."

A few of the people Pastor Joe is training to live as disciplemakers...
“I've read dozens of discipleship books, used lots of programs and manuals, studied with lots of different people as part of my efforts to obey Jesus and make disciples. But few of these paid off in producing disciples who then make disciples. The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus gives me a simple, reproducible, easily-explainable way to show someone how to do what Jesus did with someone else. I can't recommend it highly enough. It has been transformative in my life and in the life of several members of our church family. If you take the time to read this book, understand it, and put it into practice, you'll succeed in making disciples like Jesus did. And what is better than that?” 
Pastor Joe Horn, Chillicothe Bible Church, IL.

What crazy things might God do if a pastor got intentional about making disciplemakers—starting with the people in church? Here's a another true and encouraging story.

For they are traveling for the Lord, and they accept nothing from people who are not believers. So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth.” —3 John 5-8

If you fail with volunteers...

(Don't believe it? Go here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

Yet, the overwhelming majority of ministry leaders have had very little—if any—training when it comes to finding, developing, and retaining volunteers for ministry.

I have great news for you.

Help is on the way!

You—and anyone else you know who oversees ministry volunteers in any capacity—are invited to these three biblical, interactive, and practical training experiences.

The Challenge of Being a Disciplemaking Pastor—Part 1

"Hi Bill,
We talked a few months ago after the disciplemaking training experience you and your pastor friends led for the pastors of our denomination. I had been at my present church for a couple of months when that training took place. Here's a picture of the group of men I'm pulling close for disciplemaking. I would say our group is still in its infancy, but these guys are beginning to bond together and I am seeing some spiritual movement and passion kindled.

This took me a lot longer than I expected. I had originally planned to do this with the church elders. I struggled for a few months because they were resistant to meet outside of the normal business meetings due to time constraints—and that was just not enough to take this to a deeper level. So I began searching for the guys God had placed in my life here that would be receptive. I found three who were committed to come and begin the disciplemaking process.

It has been exciting to see what God is already doing in them. One of them, whom I saw from the day I came to candidate, has a deep desire to take it to the next level, no matter what. God is developing leadership in him for the future. All three together are a solid start—even if a slow one.

Thank you for staying in touch. Blessings to you and your crew!"


What can we learn from this true story?

Here's a thought that comes to my mind.



What's your next step?
* A blue-print for disciplemaking pastors
* Training for disciplemaking pastors 

* Training Pastors to Train Disciplemakers

Cadre and FCA: Disciplemaking Friendships that Multiply...

Meanwhile, at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes' (FCA) summer training camp in Jacksonville, IL, Crazy Pastor Steve (CPS) teaches everyone that The Disciplemaker's Prayer is way more than a prayer. It's a way of life together! 

What might God be able to do in our country and around the world if a small cadre of athletes and coaches embraced Jesus-like disciplemaking friendships that multiply?

Exciting thought, ain't it? That's exactly WHY we love and partner with Cole Espenshied and the Peoria Area Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

I dare you to stop and pray it RIGHT NOW.

No. Seriously. Right now.

Disciplemaking Introvert Is Not an Oxymoron...

It's not uncommon for someone to walk up to me after one of our disciplemaking training experiences and say something like...

"The training was great, but I'm an introvert."

Think with me a bit here.

Can someone live as a disciplemaker and be an introvert? Does it have to be either/or?

Jesus had twelve disciples—very close disciplemaking friends—who actively made more disciples (see The New Testament). Do you think any of them may have been introverts? If I were a betting man, I’d take that bet. Who might you guess would be the introverts amongst Jesus’ disciples? Why? And perhaps more important, so what?

Perhaps the real question underneath the introvert question is...
Does your personality type take you off the hook for making disciples? 

I can't find anywhere in Scripture where Jesus says, “Go and make disciples—unless you’re an introvert. Then you folks make the coffee and stack chairs.” No, every follower of Jesus is on the hook for making disciples—regardless of his or her temperament. 

Here's the real kicker..
I think introverts are amazing and effective disciplemakers. 

Are you still with me? Anyone out there? Let me explain...

My wife is the epitome of what it means to be an introvert. Is she commanded by Jesus to make disciples? Yes. However, she and other introverts don’t make disciples by being up front in a crowd. They don’t tend to talk a lot about disciplemaking. They just live it quietly—and I contend—often more effectively—precisely because they lead with friendship. We affectionately call this "Down-Low Disciplemaking.

Make no mistake about it: There is no ideal temperament for a disciplemaker. We need all hands—and all personality types—on deck for Jesus' disciplemaking mission to be accomplished.

The Great Commission has no exception clause.

If that's true, what's your next step?
* Step 1 Start here.
* Step 2 Go here.

Please pray RIGHT NOW...

At this very moment, two of our beloved daughters, Sadey (17) and Aubrey (24), are on a mission trip in Belize. (They are not wearing coats in Belize right now, I can promise you that : )

Would you please join us in praying RIGHT NOW for them and their teammates?

* For health and safety.
* For wisdom and love for the people of Belize.
* For teamwork and flexibility.
* For the hearts of the people of Belize to be open to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


They left today and they plan to be back this coming Sunday.

Thank you for praying for them RIGHT NOW!

Our son, Bill, and his fiancé are investing their lives this summer at a Christian camp in Iowa that is focused on reaching at-risk youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and discipling them. Let’s just say that some of the stories they have shared with us have made us way better prayer partners. We love that they are sharing Jesus (the only hope for this world) with these kids.

Would you please join us in praying RIGHT NOW for them and the other summer staff?

* For health and safety. (Not joking)
* For wisdom and love for these kids.
* For teamwork and flexibility.
* For the hearts of the campers to be open to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


FYI: Bill and his fiancé are getting married next month, August 10th. (Yes, we’re getting another daughter! And we couldn’t be more excited!)

Thanks for praying for our adult children… RIGHT NOW.

Bill for all of us

What God Did on Our Summer Mission Trip of Encouragement...

"Bill, what a huge blessing it was to see you, Stacy, and Ivy! It was so good for all of us. I'm committed to pray for your family each time Lisa and I pray together. We love you, we really do." 
—Tim Kurtz, AZ

We're back from our summer mission trip of encouragement

From our hearts to everyone of you who prayed and $upported us—THANK YOU! 

Check out what God did—and join us in giving all the glory to Jesus!
"He traveled through that area speaking many words of encouragement…." Acts 20:2
Above in Missouri:
Our first stop was with our disciplemaking friends, Rick and Shirleen Pilcher. Rick and I have known each other since we both were new followers of Jesus as teenagers. Rick invited his family and friends who had read The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus book to join us for an evening of iron-sharpening-iron community and disciplemaking.

Missouri was a favorite stop for Ivy because Rick trained Ivy to twist balloons and share the Gospel and Bible stories! We go to give encouragement and God uses our friends to encourage us. Beautifully ironic, ain't it? Ivy left with her own balloons and pump :  )

"Judas and Silas... said much to encourage and strengthen the brothers" Acts 15:32.
Above in Oklahoma: 
I've known and loved Levi Carter since he was 14-years-old (that was a long time ago). Many years later, Levi has been a pastor, ministry leader, and is now an aspiring church planter. We were blessed and encouraged by Levi, his wife, Lizeth, and their four beautiful children.

Above in Texas: 
The further west one journeys... the more critically important it is to wear your cowboy hat. Not really. But I did anyway.

"...Paul and Silas.. went to Lydia's house, where they met with the brothers and encouraged them…." Acts 16:40
Above in Arizona: 
In my 20s I played in a Christian band with youth pastors and volunteer youth leaders in the Peoria, IL, area. Tim Kurtz was our drummer and then our singer. We haven't seen Tim and his family in many years. So you can imagine our reunion when we stayed with the Kurtz family! 

"We sent Timothy… to strengthen and encourage you in your faith…." 1 Thessalonians 3:2
Above in California: 
So much fun to stay with our disciplemaking friend Phil and then be at Sanctify Church!

So much fun with friends from Sanctify Church over lunch.

"Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints." Philemon 1:7
Above in Nevada: 
We spent then night at Derrick and June Smother's place. You may remember our disciplemaking friendship with the Smothers from here, here, here, and ,most recently, here.

Above in Utah: 
Meet our friend Vern. He runs Gourmandise in Salt Lake City, UT. Absolutely delish! We highly recommend.

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another...." Hebrews 10:25
Above in Minnesota: 
Time with (TW) Mark and Rachel O'Brien—some of our favorite part-time Cadre Missionaries.

"But encourage one another daily...." Hebrews 3:13
Above with friends who live in Minnesota: 
Time with (TW) Shane and Heather Stacey and family. Shane is the Adult Equipping Pastor at Hosanna Church.

And in Minnesota Yet Again: 
Time with (TW) Ken and Kathy Castor. Ken is Professor of Youth Ministry at Crown College (Christian and Missionary Alliance). We couldn't resist the invitation to join Ken and Kathy to this HUGE crazy candy store in Minnesota. He had me at "candy."

Above in Iowa: 
On the final leg of the journey home to IL, we were out in the middle of nowhere when we came across Allison, IA. I kid you not. Couldn't resist taking this picture. 

We couldn't be Cadre Missionaries of encouragement to so many people without friends like you. Thank you for every prayer you breathe on our behalf and for every penny you give. You really are God's wind in our Cadre sails—and we will continue to do everything we can to multiply disciplemakers so that your investment in us continues to roll out through disciplemakers who make disciplesmakers—who make more disciplemakers. Only Heaven will be able to tell just how you are making an eternal difference.

The Intersection of Children's Ministry and Disciplemaking...

My disciplemaking friend, Andrew Lindell, trained the summer staff of Camp of Champions USA (COCUSA) to live and share a Jesus-like disciplemaking way of life with the next generations of children. (In case you're wondering, Andrew did this training. And you can too.)

Looks like it's going to be a disciplemaking summer with kids at COCUSA!

How beautiful and strategic is that?

Ponder this for a moment:
Wouldn't it be CRAZY if the kids being discipled make more disciples—and then those disciples make even more disciples?

Yeah, crazy like Jesus.

Making disciplemakers who make more disciplemakers: It's the only hope for this country and the world.

Here's why.

Please pray a quick right-now prayer for God to use the staff of Camp of Champions in making disciplemakers with the next generations—for extension of God's kingdom and His glory!

p.s. Join us for this disciplemaking training experience on August 1st at Community Free Church in Mahomet, IL. Contact me for details.
