Disciple-making is not a program; it's a lifestyle. The purpose of D-Life is to equip you for this lifestyle. Modeled after the example of Jesus, D-Life provides a simple, biblical, and missional process for making disciples who make disciples. With D-Life, common people can become Christ-like disciple makers--anytime and anywhere.

Disciple-making is not
This one big truth has the power to revitalize today's church. What if you could transform your church's discipleship program into an army of disciple-making people? What if you could transition your discipleship classes into a true disciple-making culture? This would be a game changer for your church.
The early church was a church without walls. The one thing they knew to do was the one thing Jesus taught them to do. He taught them to make disciples who make disciples. With no buildings or budgets, the early church grew rapidly because it knew how to multiply. Plan and simple, the early church was a grassroots disciple-making movement.
If the church today wants to reestablish itself as a powerful force on earth for the gospel of Christ, it must return to the movement that Jesus began. The key to global evangelism is not the megachurch, but the many churches of all sizes willing to rekindle the flames of a once powerful disciple-making movement. This is the purpose of D-Life. The goal of D-Life is to see a global grassroots disciple-making movement.

Allan Taylor, Executive Pastor
First Baptist Concord, Knoxville, TN
"While serving at the First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia, Bill Wilks came and led my Education staff through D-Life training. We were absolutely amazed! D-Life is simple, yet profound. It has the basic ingredients of fellowship, Bible study, and prayer; but finally, a discipleship strategy that incorporates ministry, accountability, and . . . drum roll please . . . multiplication! If you are looking for a discipleship process that both makes and multiples disciples of Jesus Christ, then this is it."
"Recently, Bill and Rondie led D-Life training for me at First Baptist Concord in Knoxville, Tennessee. Ninety people stayed after church in bad weather learning to be disciple-makers! I couldn't be more pleased. Our people were buzzing about the training. Bill, you and Rondie knocked it out of the park. Thank you for your kingdom investment in our church. Let's go make some disciples!"
