Extending the Kingdom of God through church planting and missional living.

Welcome to our library of resources on EDLD (Evangelize, Disciple, Lead, Diversify) – Do It Again!

We will continue to refresh this page with new resources designed to equip you as you continue to be about the work of these essential Kingdom practices!

What is EDLD – Do It Again?

As the earliest disciples experienced, doing what Jesus invited us to do with him can keep us on course with God’s heart for the world. And what essential practices did Jesus do, and teach us to do? We can summarize the essential practices of Kingdom people with these four words:

Evangelize. Disciple. Lead. Diversify. Do it again!

These activities are the nonnegotiables of life with Jesus. He has never stopped doing the work of evangelism, discipling individuals, nurturing them as leaders, and reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost of every tribe, age, and language.

We will never outgrow the need for these essential practices to rise again and again to the top of our list of priorities. Not only will the Kingdom expand, but what we do as we “EDLD” others will keep us on track – and change our hearts in the process.
