"It is truly explosive…"
(Lagos, Nigeria)—It was a beehive of activity recently in the Nigerian port city of Lagos during [the] Disciple The Nation (DTN) discipleship training program held from August 18-22.
The group hosted participants from 20 African nations, both from the Anglo and Francophone speaking countries. DTN spent the entire time working through its newly published discipleship manual, which was translated into French and Yoruba languages (a tribal language spoken in the southwest of Nigeria) simultaneously.
Speaking at the training program, the President of DTN, Tim E. Miller said that over the past four years or so, the disciples in Nigeria [have been] multiplying very rapidly among both literates and illiterates alike as a result of the various discipleship training programs [that have been] held in the time past.
He further noted that he actually met some fifth and sixth generation disciples that had multiplied since the last program, adding that DTN has produced a rough estimate of about 5,000 disciples in Nigeria alone, and that the number will soon escalate beyond calculation.
Some attendees from other nations gave glorious reports of the rapidity of multiplication occurring in their countries. One of the leaders in South Africa testified how he has reached out to retired pastors, and now has over seventy "gray heads" meeting once a week for disciple-making and networking. While others said they are literally reaching thousands through crusade ministry, followed up with disciple-making with churches working in accord with one another.
Miller further said: "It is truly explosive. Participants in the conference vowed to network their countries with disciple-making within a three year period. I believe they will do it."
