Jesus tells his disciples to “seek first the Kingdom” (Mt 6:33), before commissioning them to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19). To advance his Kingdom, he calls, equips, and sends out disciples-making disciples.

A winning church forms disciples for effective Kingdom advancement.Jesus called, formed, and sent leaders.Leaders have the responsibility to define winning for themselves and those they serve. A leader clearly communicates what winning looks like, making the targets clear, equipping others to hit them, and building a strong culture that makes winning expected and even easy (or at least easier).If our church is not forming disciples, then leaders need to seriously evaluate what exactly it is they are doing.

This might mean going back to the drawing board and making major changes.Dave Ramsey, the financial planning guru who has recently been broadening his brand to include training for what he has dubbed “EntreLeadership,” is a proven leader who consistently wins and empowers his team do the same.

He wins because he knows what winning looks like. He relentlessly pursues winning while communicating it to his team and equipping them for victory.A secret to Ramsey’s success is “KRA’s” (Key Result Areas). KRA’s clearly and succinctly spell out what winning looks like for a particular position. Generally, they are short and sweet, proposing outcomes more than tasks- that way, people use their own initiative, intelligence, freedom, and creativity to get the job done. This approach avoids micro-management, opting instead for empowering protagonists by showing honor and respect while exhibiting the principle of subsidiarity.This little book is designed to be KRA’s for discipleship.

It is meant to be a short, simple, practical resource for Christian leaders seeking to form intentional disciples and build disciple-forming cultures. It can serve as a helpful itinerary assisting Spirit-driven cooperation in growing into more intentional, effective disciples. It can even serve as a Kingdom-driven, discipleship-focused examination of conscience.Christian leaders do not always excel at clearly defining for others what winning lookslike.

As a result, churches do real good, but often in a way that is over-programmed,unorganized, unfocused, and haphazard. It’s hard to even know if success has occurred,let alone repeat it, if we do not know clearly what it looks like in the first place.Leaders should use these KRA’s to accompany and train their core team and fellowleaders. Then, the team can be authorized and released to accompany and train others.Many Scriptures are cited for each KRA, and can be used for small group Bible studies in the context of discipleship formation.

It’s important to note that these Scriptures are my own compilation. They are neither normative nor exhaustive, but rather are meant to serve only as a starting point, a collection of relevant biblical texts for each area. Many other wonderful Scriptures can and should be used as deemed helpful.The KRA’s are divided into three main areas of conviction, character, and competence lined up to each correspond to one of my personal core values:1) teachability: conviction (mental)2) responsibility: character (moral)3) missionary discipleship: competence (missional)
