Growing up, Rick Warren used to write the letters YBH in the margins of his Bible while listening to sermons.1 The letters stand for "Yes, but How?" GreatCommission.com is committed to answering that question. Our focus is on showing people how to make disciples. We offer practical strategies, simple tools, and powerful resources that show you how to launch a disciple-making movement.
We do this because nothing expands the kingdom, extends the gospel, and enlarges the Church like making disciples who make disciples.
