A Person of Peace can help rapidly reproduce disciple-making even in a place where followers of Jesus are few and far between. Watch the video below to learn who that person might be and how to know when you've found one.

When you want to make disciples in a place where not many - or maybe even any - exist, then looking for a Person of Peace might be the most important thing you do.

A Person of Peace is:

  • Someone who is OPEN to hearing Your Story, God’s Story and the Good News of Jesus.
  • Someone who is HOSPITABLE and WELCOMES you into their home or their workplace or to join events with family and friends.
  • Someone who KNOWS OTHERS (or is KNOWN BY OTHERS) and who is excited to draw together a small group or even a crowd.
  • Someone who is FAITHFUL and SHARES what they learn with others - even after you’re gone.

Three Simple Ways to Identify a Person of Peace:

  • ask for recommendations from people in the community -- "Who's someone that's trusted here? Is there someone in this place who thinks of others before themselves?"
  • offer to pray for someone you meet while prayer walking or in your daily rhythms
  • introduce spiritual ideas into every conversation to see if God is working in a person's life

No matter how we find them, remember Jesus said a Person of Peace is someone we should be spending most of our disciple-making time with.

Ask Yourself

  1. Can someone who has a "bad reputation" (like the Samaritan woman or the demon-possessed man in the Gadarenes) really be a Person of Peace? Why or why not?
  2. What is a community or segment of society near you that seems to have little (or no) Kingdom presence? How could a Person of Peace (someone who is OPEN, HOSPITABLE, KNOWS OTHERS and SHARES) accelerate the spread of the Gospel in that community?
