Any program for recovering the vitality of the Church—whether the Benedict Option or some other—must have as one of its goals that ministers work “to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.” (Eph. 4:11-14, NIV). The goal is that the saints be equipped for works of ministry, so that they can build the body of Christ up to maturity. Accordingly, one of the core tenets of every treatment of Christian discipleship is the idea that discipleship is incomplete until it includes multiplication: I mentor you, you mentor others, and they in turn mentor yet others. The goal is that each person’s training in the faith includes the ability to train others to train others in the faith.
