“I dream of a ‘missionary option’… a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything…”
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
Do you have the same dream as Pope Francis? Would you like to see your parish, apostolate, or family flourishing in Christ like never before?
In Making Missionary Disciples, Curtis Martin, founder of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), explores how to build a vibrant culture of faithfulness and fruitfulness. He doesn’t just remind us how every disciple is called on mission to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ. He gives us practical ways to do this in our ordinary daily lives.
• Know the three crucial habits of effective evangelization.
• Grow in Divine Intimacy following the four essential practices to which the early disciples devoted themselves.
• Learn the importance of becoming not only a disciple, but a missionary disciple.
• Understand the three-phased “Method Modeled by the Master”—the approach to evangelization modeled for us by Jesus in the Gospels and rooted in Catholic magisterial teaching.

"No one knows the needs, fears, hopes and aspirations of young adults (and not just young adults) better than Curtis Martin. Nor is anyone as gifted in reaching people in a compelling way with the Word of God. This book may be slim in size, but it's extraordinarily rich in good counsel and practical content. It's a delight to read, and a wonderful resource for building the skills of fruitful discipleship."

"The success of FOCUS missionaries in bringing souls to Christ is a great blessing for the Church. This book sets forth the Gospel principles that guide and inspire their apostolate. You will find encouragement here for your own efforts to make Christ known and loved by all"

"In these dense and dynamic 60 pages of Making Missionary Disciples, Curtis Martin shows convincingly how to pass on the missionary spirit from generation to generation, as Paul passed it on to Timothy, Timothy to his disciples , and his disciples to their disciples. This book of Evangelizing faithfulness and fruitfulness, if digested and its message lived, will move disciples to become disciple makers and thus set the parish, the university and indeed the world on evangelical fire."
