The Ultimate Impact Challenge

“Ultimate Impact” is a practical way to fulfill the great commission by networking together to make, mentor, mature and multiply disciples. The great commission is for everyone, not just those gifted in evangelism. But most of us have never seen a model of evangelism that works and consistently produces maturing disciples. That’s because most churches are using programs to reach people and not training their people to be the messengers of the gospel. That’s also why most churches in America are not growing.

But how did Jesus reach people? He called people to be with him and taught them relationally, not in a classroom. The best place to learn is on-the-job training. Too often, we want to equip people and then hope they will use their knowledge to motivate them to go and teach people. Jesus carried people along with him and equipping happened “on the go”. To put it simply, God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called. But only if they actively do what he has commanded (i.e. go and make disciples).

So taking the “Ultimate Impact Challenge” is simply saying, “I want to learn as I go to be a better disciple-maker”.

The Ultimate Impact Challenge

Reach the World in One Generation

Yes, I am ready to deny myself, take up my cross, change my priorities and rearrange my schedule. I will do whatever I can to win at least one person a year to Jesus and pour my life into helping that person lead one person the next year and pass on the vision. I am ready to do this now or to be trained as I go along with someone while learning to do this within the next few months.

If you take the Ultimate Impact Challenge, you are taking a challenge to become a continuously maturing disciple who is committed to doing whatever it takes to make and mature other disciples until the world is won for Jesus. In order to help facilitate this kind of growth, you are also encouraged to take the time to develop your spiritual life in the following ways:

  • Reprioritize your schedule so that you can attend weekly meetings with others who have taken the challenge in your church or area.
  • In these meetings, discover and meet each others’ needs for developing life skills necessary for having a maturing relationship with God, the church, and the lost (prayer, Bible study, confession, time management, money management, motivation, people skills, etc.). Remember: You can’t lead where you won’t go and you can’t show what you don’t know.
  • Be voluntarily accountable to the others in your group.
  • Learn from others by various means (CDs, seminars, books, etc.) who are effective at making disciples.
  • Make a concentrated effort to lead pre-Christians through the process of conversion.
  • As you are making disciples, help those disciples to make other disciples and instill in them the vision of the great commission to which Jesus has called all his disciples. At an appropriate time in their spiritual walk, invite them to take the Ultimate Impact Challenge as well.
