Pastors around the world have shared with us that there is a leadership and influence gap between their church and the community in which they live. There are not enough leaders for the ministries of the church, much less to be salt and light in the community. Many churches are irrelevant to the community because they primarily exist for themselves.
At Perimeter Church, life-on-life missional discipleship is the way that we are developing spiritual maturity in the lives of our people. For years, Perimeter was recognized for growth and innovation, but we realized that there was something missing – taking people to a level of maturity in their faith. The church realized that life-on-life missional discipleship had been at the core of our leadership development, but it was not the culture of the church. It was not a movement. As we begin to apply the principles of Jesus’s model of discipleship to shape the culture of discipleship in the church, we saw a new level of spiritual depth develop amongst our people.
Life on Life Ministries was founded out of Perimeter, to help other churches to follow Jesus’ model of discipleship in their church.
We seek to follow Jesus’s model for developing leaders, and bringing about true spiritual formation. Primarily using curriculum and content to transfer knowledge does not develop leaders. Pastors and leaders can consistently develop mature and equipped followers of Christ through life-on-life missional discipleship.
We offer a relational process to assist church leaders to ignite a movement of life-on-life missional discipleship in their local church and city.
This process has been built off of Biblical principles found by looking at the life of Jesus and others throughout scripture.
We also offer resources and tools to help leaders as they are investing in the lives of others. These tools will be most beneficial when they are used in the context of life-on-life missional discipleship.
Life on Life is a ministry of Perimeter Church. Perimeter was founded in 1977, by Randy Pope. The church has always been shaped by his personal discipleship. As a culture of discipleship developed in Perimeter, the church has seen practical ways to consistently develop mature and equipped followers of Christ, the way that Jesus did.
In 2006, Perimeter launched Life on Life as a ministry to help other churches follow Jesus’ model of ministry. To help other churches, we have developed a training process to help a local church build a culture of discipleship in their church. We have also developed materials that have proven to be helpful for churches as they are involved in life-on-life missional discipleship.
We work with local churches around the world to develop Life on Life hubs that can provide training for other churches in their region. This allows us to offer our relational training process outside of Atlanta. We have helped to develop hubs in Brazil, South Africa, Poland, Singapore, Manilla, Boston, Cuba, and Australia.
