Our Experiences

Discover calling. Develop character. Multiply disciples.

Our suite of comprehensive disciple-making experiences are designed to bring real transformation to your faith community. Modeled after Jesus’s disciple-making rhythms, these experiences teach spiritual habits; build genuine community; encourage high investment; multiply leaders; and unleash people to become missionaries where they live, work, learn and play.

All of our experiences are outcome-focused: Our app helps you track both individual and community spiritual growth. Followers Made and Missionaries Made are great places to start, while Leaders Made and the Microchurch Learning Community are more advanced. However, the experiences are integrated so you can move through them in whatever order fits the needs of your community best.

Gifts Passion Story

Gifts Passion Story

Helping disciples discover their unique, personal callings

Everyone has a calling: the God-given intersection of gifts, passions and stories. But not everyone knows their calling. GPS helps people explore those three signals—gifts, passions, stories—and find their place in the kingdom. From detailed assessment questions to journaling exercises, GPS leads people into a deeper understanding of their one-of-a-kind Masterpiece Missions. GPS also offers tools for churches, including message outlines, small group materials, and admin access to view your community’s results. Whether you’re a pastor, small group leader or individual believer, GPS can bring clarity to calling.

Coaching

Coaching

Disciples Made offers both group and individual coaching to create the most effective experiences possible.

We know it can be difficult to assess and respond to the needs of a community when you’ve been working inside it for years. Our Disciples Made coaches can help you translate your community’s challenges and hopes into an actionable plan. We call this an Intentional Disciple-Making Experience, or an IDE. An IDE outlines suggested tools (some ours, some others’) that can transform your community from spiritual content consumers to disciple-makers.

 Experience

Group and/or one-on-one coaching tailored to community needs.

  • Develop a custom plan to meet your community’s challenges
  • Learn best-practices for Disciples Made experience execution
