What is MAWL and why change 'Leave' to 'Launch'?

Submitted by Macka on Wed, 04/13/2022 - 01:06

MAWL is a training (discipleship) tool that is at the very core of Disciple Making Movements (DMM) and Church Planting Movements (CPM). The traditional tool stood for "Model, Assist, Watch and Leave". Article explains the reason why we changed it to "Model, Assist, Watch and Launch".

Decision Making, Conflict Resolution and 'ORID'

Submitted by Macka on Wed, 04/13/2022 - 00:43

There are four basic steps to group decision-making and or conflict resolution.

  1. Prayer
  2. Consult any Scripture on the topic
  3. Apply a tool like 'ORID'
  4. Ask yourself: “What would Jesus do?” 

So the group has hit a fork in the road and you want to move past it. What do you do?


Firstly get yourself right with God and seek guidance in prayer.

Crash and Burn Discipleship #1: Clashing Cultures

Submitted by Macka on Wed, 04/13/2022 - 00:10

This is another article showing you my underbelly for the good of the Kingdom, I will attempt to guide you around some deep potholes of my early walk. Once again, we in the West are too invested in our own viewpoints and find it hard to believe that other cultures or people groups can have a completely different view. This article will cover such topics like "African Time", "honesty" verses "face" and the "Client/Patron relationship" Buckle up (and try not to laugh).

Crash and Burn Discipleship #2: 2nd biggest reason for failing to multiply - The Teacher/Student Relationship

Submitted by Macka on Wed, 04/13/2022 - 00:03

Second on this series of Crash and Burns is the hidden world between the teacher and their students that can be more than it first appears to be. I have escaped this trap myself mostly but I have seen many of my disciples fall into it because I failed to bring the problem up into the foreground. It is only later when they come to me and ask why they can’t get their groups to multiply down in the generations I realise my failure. This would be, in my opinion, the second biggest cause for a network failing to multiply down the generations!

ORID part 2 - Dealing with Fear (as well as the issues of our day)

Submitted by Macka on Tue, 04/12/2022 - 07:53

I have written this addendum to ORID because of the recent events of the last couple of years.  There are changes a foot all over the Western World.

Since writing this article I have seen some friends who are Pastors (or Elders) struggle with conflicts within their congregations.   I appreciate their positions.  Members of a traditional church congregation can be a fickle group.  They can be migratory in nature seeking the best sermons, songs, youth groups, common interests, coffee, etc...  Some other issues of more importance too.
