Leading a Whole-life Disciplemaking Church

Making Disciples for the Workplace

Reimagine how ordinary churches can disciple people for daily life with these books for church leaders.

Every time our church communities meet, we have an amazing opportunity – to empower God’s people to join his mission, right where he’s placed them. In workshops and coffee shops, sitting rooms and boardrooms, streets and clubs and schools.

Packed with insights and ideas, these books are designed to help you grow that kind of whole-life disciplemaking culture in your church.

During two decades of field work with churches across the denominations and the country, we’ve listened to and learned from those who’ve effectively made the necessary cultural shifts. We’ve identified what helps Christians go into their week inspired to live out their faith with impact. And we’ve noted key findings on how to sustain that whole-life culture for the long term.

So, how do you change the focus of a church to equip people for Monday to Saturday? And what are the implications for leaders? Discover what we’ve learned in the books below and find out how to get your own church involved.


Imagine Church

How can an ordinary church become a community of people who help one another live out their whole life – at work, home, church, in the neighbourhood – as followers of Jesus in his mission to the world? Drawing on three years of work with pilot churches across the UK, pioneer practitioner and working pastor Neil Hudson offers wisdom and practical examples of how a church can change.

Scattered & Gathered

Building on the findings of Imagine Church seven years later, Neil Hudson explores how churches sustain a culture that makes resilient disciples over time – both when they’re gathered and when they’re scattered in today’s world. Brimming with lessons applied personally, discover his insights from a whole career of engagement and cross-denominational field research with hundreds of churches.

Leading a Whole-life Disciplemaking Church

Making Disciples for the Workplace

Building on extensive fieldwork in a wide variety of contexts, this short booklet offers tested ways for church communities to envision and empower working Christians to live, apply, and share God’s whole-life gospel fruitfully, day by working day.

Part of the Grove Discipleship Series, this is an ideal resource to read and discuss in local leadership teams.
