Christian Ed. and the 21st Century Church

I agree that if the schools are doing their job everything is in balance and evangelism and equipping(discipleship) is happening. The evidence screams otherwise!

You can’t do discipleship without converts.

Biblical discipleship produces new converts. Biblical discipleship demands new converts. Yet I know far to many Chrisitian “disciples” who wouldn’t know the first thing about having a spiritual conversation with an unbeliever. A church that is not producing new converts is a church (or school) that is not discipling people.

So again, my question is, if we are investing HUGE amounts of resources and time into making good disciples and yet we have so little fruit (I know fruit is more than new believers but it is one major fruit of a good disciple) should we reevaluate our investment?
