Fostering a Disciple-Making Culture
We would like to recommend the book 'Building a Discipling Culture' by Mike Breen of 3DM Ministries, from which a number of the practical tools mentioned in this talk are from.
We believe a disciple-making culture is key to the renewal of Europe. If you would like to join us in shaping a shared culture of spiritual growth across the continent, please give your name and email below and we'll look forward to you being a part of an ongoing movement of hybrid gatherings, mutual learning as well as shared experience and support of one another in the future as we make disciples of all European nations.

Diana "DU" Anton lives in Bucharest, Romania, where she and her husband Bogdan serve as missionaries with Josiah Venture, training youth leaders in how to make disciples in this generation. She also leads Lifesprings International, a ministry for women worldwide, focused on connecting, preparing and encouraging women to impact their communities with the love of God. She grew up in communist Romania in a Christian family, from which she got a strong foundation in faith. But her call to full-time ministry was received after she graduated from university and got her licence as a psychologist. She left it all behind to follow her Master and she has no regrets. She got her M.A. from Fuller Theological Seminary and has since received other certificates in adult education and formation. When she relaxes, Diana loves to go on long walks or restore old wood.
