IntroductionIn disciple making planning we must look to the guidelines provided to the Apostlesbefore Christ’s rise. The workings that Jesus completed during his stay on Earth in human form,are clear in spiritual anatomy of the modern churches of the world.The scripture gives usexamples of the different elements that are present in Christ’s ministry of the early churchrecorded in 13 Pauline messages. “The order of the church-community is of divine origin andcharacter, though it is, of course, intended to serve and not rule. The office of the church-community are “ministries” (1 Cor. 12:4). They are appointed by God (1 Cor. 12:28). By Christ(Eph. 4:11), by the Holy Spirit (Acts 20:28) within but not by the church-community. Evenwhere the church community assigns offices itself, it does that in complete compliance to theguidance provided by Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2) et passim). The office and church-community bothhave their origin from triune God. The offices are present to serve the church community; theycan be defended spiritually only through their service.1There are some attributes that church and the Christian community should obtain todevelop into proficient disciple makers. It requires to be well disciplined in Scripture, matured,constant, and well-timed in acquiring the correct bait in making successful disciples. Jesus is thewriter and finisher of our belief; he is the supreme disciple maker of all the churches.God hasgiven complete authority to Christ, as he is the appeasement and redemption of body of theChrist.

The task of educatingand perfecting disciple is not only specific to leaders, but it is the duty of universal churchcommunities. The aim of the church is to develop disciples who can grow into successful1Bonhoeffer, Dietrich. Works: Discipleship Volume 4 Minneapolis: (First Fortress Press). 2003. p. 230
2disciple makers. As the disciples mature, their spiritual gifts become healthier for church. Thisway a church creates a successful disciple for their community and the process is ended.
