Holidays and Vacations
One thing that can really slow down a discipleship multiplication, the multiplication of disciples is taking too much time off during summer breaks, holidays and vacation time. I would say that it is never good to go more than 30 days without meeting with your disicple. In other words never take a whole summer off from meeting with your disciple or disicipler.
One thing you can do is after Christmas holidays or vacations is to have a catch-up meeting with your disciple or discipler. Meaning that you would take maybe a whole Saturday morning, or an entire Saturday afternoon and meet for 3-4 hours to catch up and keep things moving. Or even meet a couple days or nights in a row during one week to bring everything back to the right schedule.
But the most important thing is to have a constant relationship going, to have a caring connection with the disciple and discipler because things are always happening in their life, especially for a new young believer or a new young disciple.
So be careful to not lose momentum because of holidays, vacations and breaks that might take place.
