Multiplying movements, such as we see in the New Testament ministries of Jesus and Paul, are bursting forth today in hundreds of contexts and cultures (more than 50 million new disciples in 650 movements as of March, 2018)!
Stubborn Perseverance is a “how to” manual written as the captivating story—based on real events—of a movement of multiplying disciples—illustrating and detailing biblical principles by which YOU can pursue God for a disciple-making movement in your own context.
Stubborn Perseverance isn’t just a manual, it’s a record of the inner workings of a real church-planting movement that invites readers to join the exciting adventure of launching such movements.
Stubborn Perseverance represents a new spirit of collaboration among practitioners—learning from and building on one another’s successes—through which movements are being launched at an ever-increasing pace, in places and peoples once considered “resistant.”
Why Stubborn Perseverance?
Many laborers, along with their prayer and support teams, labor without the vision and guidance to effectively pursue God for a movement.
Stubborn Perseverance presents, in an enjoyable story format, a distillation of best practices from several different streams of movements, providing:
- a unique, inside look at how movements develop, and
- practical steps for seeking God with others for a movement in your own context.
Based on actual events, Stubborn Perseverance walks readers step by step through the principles and practices by which many around the world are now collaborating with the Holy Spirit to launch movements.
To apply this manual for maximum fruitfulness, find a mentor with movement experience and gather others to read and adapt Stubborn Perseverance to your own context.
What do other say about Stubborn Perseverance?
I’ve read Contagious Disciple-Making, Miraculous Movements, and Wind in the House of Islam. And I’ve trained in Any-3 and Camel Method (all great!). Stubborn Perseverance distills them into the manual I want for our team.

Other movement materials left me confused and overwhelmed. They sounded good in principle, but I had no idea how to proceed on my own or explain the concepts to others. Stubborn Perseverance solves all of that.

Stubborn Perseverance is now my #1 training tool for church-planting movements! The story both explains and illustrates the essential steps of multiplying disciples to launch such a movement.

Stubborn Perseverance is a well-crafted story revealing the revolutionary principles of multiplicative disciple making. The story is inspiring and the questions following each chapter are a team training treasure trove. This is a book I will buy by the case!
