God is increasingly bringing the unreached peoples in contact with believers. How do we make the most of this reality and effectively disciple new believers to have the greatest impact possible on their people?

How can we equip the local church to effectively respond to immigrant communities, planting culturally relevant disciple-groups among them?

Despite evangelical missionary presence in India for the last two hundred years, the vast majority of Hindu people groups are still without an indigenous disciple-making movement. Richard will give practical reasons why that is the case, and suggest real solutions that are working to address the dilem- ma of over 800 million people cut off from the gospel and the church.
Making Disciples in the Buddhist Context Led by: Alex Smith & Kiichi Ariga
ere are over 1 billion people in the world today that are daily influenced by a Buddhist worldview.
However, reaching Buddhists for Christ, Alex Smith contends is not so much a matter of more evange- lism, but “to make disciples to function and reproduce as His church.” If we effectively train and equip people in disciple-making communities we will unleash the potential of exponential growth. Smith and Ariga believe there is a corollary between numerical growth and the qualitative growth of believ- ers, that the key to numerical growth is deepening the spiritual growth of existing and future believers.
