We need to accompany people to full growth in the Christian life. Tim provides further evidence of why discipleship is absolutely necessary following pre-evangelization and evangelization. He gives us the key to unlocking discipleship, which is community.
Every baptized Christian is supposed to multiply and make more disciples. How does our parish prepare people for this mission and then send them out to accomplish it? Tim discusses all of these critical points in this chapter.
Tim introduces the next section on mobilizing leaders with a warning. If you don’t multiply your leadership, you will burn out. He gives two extremes in parish life that must be avoided if you want to mobilize your leaders.
