Yoido’s discipleship system is so effective that the church has grown to the point of violating many commonly accepted church growth principles. Yet the world’s most efficient discipleship system keeps producing converts and raising them up to exponentially make disciples. As Yoido defines the highest level of adaptive competency in making disciples, what drops away with size is actually inessential. What remains is the core effective activity in making disciples and will work in any size church. Every member at Yoido participates in a fourfold ministry of worship, prayer meeting, ministry visitation (as a visitor or a recipient) and cell. Even the smallest American churches can provide this fourfold ministry pattern.
