Endorsements

  • When talking about missional movement leadership, I have often said that Curtis Sergeant is the best of us all. He has a genius-level intelligence, single-minded focus, authentic humility, and burning passion. The result of this combustible combination is Kingdom movements all over the world. This book may seem simple and basic, but don’t let that fool you. What he puts in this small book is actually the key to making disciples worth multiplying. This book is a window into the soul of a world changer, so pay attention.

  • Curtis Sergeant has had more impact on world missions than anyone else I know today. Why? The Only One reveals the heart and thinking of a man totally sold out, utterly passionate and consumed with Jesus and His Kingdom. I found myself alternately inspired, convicted, and profoundly challenged. If your longing is to see the expansion of God’s Kingdom in the world, I highly recommend not just reading this book, but allowing its principles to change your life.

  • Curtis Sergeant has done a wonderful job of assembling practical concepts and tools that will challenge you to put your faith into practice. It will revolutionize your quiet time with the Lord.

    Paul EshlemanPresident, Finishing the Task, and former President, Jesus Film Project

  • I have personally known Curtis Sergeant for many years as a man of great wisdom and deep intellect. Yet it is Curtis’s unquenchable desire for himself and others to seek and obey Christ above all else that drives the pulse of this important book. Curtis seeks to compel readers toward completeness in Christ at all costs. Curtis writes with urgency and singularity of focus, as if our lives and their impact on eternity hang in the balance of our understanding of God’s design. They do. I would challenge you to approach the content of this book accordingly.

    John HeeremaFounder and President, Biglife

  • What a goldmine of biblical truth. It is filled with brilliant and practical insights into increasing your intimacy with God, your unity with God’s people, and your impact for God’s Kingdom.

    Dan HitzhusenDirector, Issachar Initiative, and former International Vice President, e3 Partners

  • The Only One somehow finds the perfect connection between “being” and “doing” for God. I suppose it’s because the book’s author lives in that intersection. The Only One doesn’t really focus on explaining how to bring about a disciple-making movement in the tactical sense. But I’m convinced that if more of us could live out the instructions in this book, movements would multiply like crazy. That’s because instead of focusing on formulas and quick-fix tactics, this book focuses on how to be a disciple. You will not find a more Bible-based approach. Nor will you ever find an author so humble, so tireless inhis chase after Christ, nor so committed to snatching humankind from hell. Here’s the bottom line: If you want to be like Jesus, read the Bible—and do this book.

    Doug LucasFounder and President, Team Expansion

  • Reading and applying The Only One will explode in and through your life the joy-filling adventure of knowing and sowing the love of our Father wherever and whenever you go!! Curtis and I have been weeping and reaping as God has woven our lives together in the joy-filling purpose and work of making disciples worth multiplying. As you read, listen, apply, share, journal, calendar, and pray through each chapter of The Only One, the Holy Spirit will draw you step by step into living fully in, by, and for God. So as David said to his son Solomon in 1 Chronicles 28:20, I say to you: “Be strong and courageous”— and JUST DO IT!

    Colin Millarprayer igniter at Global Alliance for Saturation Church Planting and Gospel Media Outreach

  • Curtis Sergeant has done it again! His take on living fully in, by, and for God will greatly encourage any Christ-follower looking to live with God’s eternal Kingdom in mind. Curtis does a great job of offering thoughtful insights that are drawn out of practical experience and personal study deeply anchored in Scripture. This book is incredibly comprehensive, but also very easy to apply to one’s life and train others as well. Curtis has been a great source of inspiration to walk closer with Jesus in my own life and the lives of countless others around the world. When you read this book, I expect the same will be true in your life as well. Get ready to listen, apply, and share with others all God is calling you to doand be.

    Jared NelmsVice President, The Timothy Initiative

  • In The Only One, believers—regardless of location, upbringing, education, or culture— are empowered with encouragement and practical guidance on how to pursue Christ with their whole being. I’ve had the privilege of co-laboring in Great Commission work with Curtis Sergeant and can attest that the words penned herein are the fruits of his own love for Christ and joyful surrender to His mission. We have much to glean from this passionate brother! The lessons, prayers, and practical tools within these pages are must-reads for anyone desiring to lead a life consumed by fully surrendered devotion to our triune God, who is worthy of all glory and honor and power forever and ever. And thankfully, Curtis has made this inspired new toolbox available to the global body of Christ at no cost! This is a true work of faith and a labor of love!

    Kurt NelsonPresident, East West Ministries

  • Curtis’s humility and depth of insight from a long and close walk with the Lord Jesus are captured here in The Only One. Read slowly with your Bible in one hand, as the density of the content is more than you may think at first. You have here a guide to living fully for Jesus. Not a wasted word
