Overview

The Mission

Helping ordinary people make a big impact for the Kingdom of God by obeying and implementing the Great Commission and Great Commandment.

The Vision

Make disciples in every census tract in the United States (phases 1 and 2) and every Omega District globally (phase 3), using an online training platform focused on equipping participants in the basic disciple-making and simple church planting multiplication principles, processes, and practices.

Status of the Mission

Only 1% of church leaders say, “today’s churches are doing very well at discipling new and young believers,” (Barna, State of Discipleship, 2015). And yet this same study says that 77% of all practicing Christians believe discipleship to be very important. We know discipleship is vital to the health and growth of God’s Kingdom, but we just aren’t making it happen. Christians want to be discipled and they want to make disciples of others, but they need tools, training, and mentoring to make it all possible. Zúme aims to address this very specific and timely need.

Goals of the Zúme Project

Zúme means yeast in Greek. In Matthew 13:33 Jesus is quoted as saying, “the Kingdom of Heaven is like a woman who took yeast and mixed it into a large amount of flour until it was all leavened.” This illustrates how ordinary people, using ordinary resources, can have an extraordinary impact for the Kingdom of God. Zúme aims to equip and empower ordinary believers to reach every neighborhood.

The Curriculum

The curriculum is intentionally aimed at teaching people how to make disciples who make disciples, who make disciples. The 10-week course teaches key principles and processes for making and multiplying disciples using simple, easy to use tools and resources.

Training Methods

In the fall of 2016, Zúme will be launched as a website at www.zumeproject.com, complete with training videos (in a video-scribe format), downloadable tools, online coaches, and a group mapping feature enabling groups across the country and around the world access to all the necessary resources they need to make multiplying disciples.
