Everyone knows disciplemaking in churches is important - vital, even. But how do we move from good intentions to real transformation?

Drawing on LICC's engagement with thousands of UK churches and his decades of experience as a church leader, Ken Benjamin offers 20 ways to put whole-life discipleship at the heart of our churches - 20 vital signs of disciplemaking life. Together, they'll help you grow a culture that equips people to live out their faith in every part of life, not just through church activities.

The key is not to add to our stretched to-do lists, but to permeate everything we already do with new, refreshing perspective. Whole-life disciplemaking should be embedded rather than added, built in rather than bolted on. When this happens, the effect is life-changing - not only for congregations and church leaders but for the individuals, organisations and places they seek to serve.

Vital Signs works in tandem with LICC's online assessment tool, training videos and resources to help leadership teams assess, embed and maintain whole-life discipleship in the churches they serve. Discover more at licc.org.uk/vitalsigns .
