We work to assist churches in Jesus’ mandate to make disciples that make disciples. We partner with churches in this effort through events, training, consultations and resources.
Our great commission mandate is to make disciples of Jesus of all nations. While the mandate is easily understood, it is often difficult to know where to start. The week of September 19-22 we will be hosting Disciple-Making Forums in your area to help you navigate how to make disciples in your church setting. Glenn Underhill from discipleFIRST Ministries will share Jesus’ proven strategy to make and multiply disciples that will help launch sustainable discipleship in your church!
