Growing intentional Disciplemaking Cultures

Relational. Intentional. Missional.

Your church culture is teaching people how to follow Jesus. What is it teaching them?

"AMERICA'S BEST CHURCHES DON'T HAVE A DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAM OR 'MINISTRY,' BUT A DISCIPLEMAKING CULTURE AND IDENTITY."

-THE STATE OF DISCIPLESHIP, BARNA GROUP

Disciplemaking in a church doesn’t happen by osmosis. Pastors and ministry leaders must be committed to building, nourishing, and sustaining cultures of life-to-life disciplemaking. What we preach, teach, and model sets the culture for our congregations and ministries. In other words, your church is perfectly calibrated to make the disciples it’s making. 

WHAT KIND OF DISCIPLES
IS YOUR CHURCH MAKING?

Our Growing intentional Disciple Making (GiDC) process starts with the culture you have and intentionally grows it into what you want it to be

A CULTURE THAT MAKES DISCIPLES
WHO MAKE DISCIPLES

Together we help you build a disciplemaking culture in your church to impact the world.

You don’t need us. You could read a lot of books, learn by trial and error, and figure it out, but why learn by trial and error when you could have an experienced guide and coach at your side? Our three-year Growing intentional Disciplemaking Cultures (GiDC) process equips you to build a disciplemaking culture that impacts the community. We’ve taken hundreds of church leaders through this highly relational, intentional, and missional process. 

The GiDC has three distinct phases that produce three distinct biblical outcomes:

1. CORE Team:

A disciplemaking culture is only as strong as its foundation. In this phase we help you develop a CORE team that serves as that foundation. As key disciplemaking leaders are built they begin to live out and then function as MODELS in the church culture.

2. Culture:

A disciplemaking culture is focused and calibrated to make disciples at every level. In this phase, we focus on key elements of culture such as shared language, values, vision, and practices. MATURITY comes as we align our words and our deeds, our priorities and our actions. As maturity develops within the church culture, layers of leaders develop common heart, vision, and skill in disciplemaking.

3. Community:

A disciplemaking culture is focused out towards the lost. We don’t make dead-end disciplemaking cultures. In this final phase, the focus is outward. We’ve been practicing it all along, but now we focus on going into the community and impacting others with a threefold strategy to MULTIPLY where people live, work, and play.

This isn’t a program. Our process is adaptable and has been proven in hundreds of churches around the country. We customize the process to each church’s unique culture. Ready to get started? We’re excited to help you. We know the path. We understand the obstacles. We’ve charted a course. We know what resources are required to reach the destination.
