Founder’s Story

Disciples Made was conceptualized while I was a full-time pastor, and realized an alarming trend: there’s a codependency problem between church leaders and church attenders . . . I’m not sure that aligns with Jesus’ Great Commission.

It was 2010 and I’d settled into a nice role at a great church. But as church numbers and groups started growing, I knew something had to change in order to disciple and send our congregants.

Church leaders everywhere help grow church groups, plan events, conduct worship and settle into their respective communities. Successful? To some degree. But are churches really heeding the call to multiply disciples? Not quite.

I was unsettled. But in 2011 led a group of 11 individuals with goal of going and creating generational discipleship. The results were clear, and made a positive impact in our church community. That’s where Disciples Made was born.

A lot has changed since then. Today, Disciples Made offers four different experiences: Leaders Made, Followers Made, BLESS, and Simple Church. Our goal is to see 50 movements in 50 cities by 2040. What’s a movement? At least four generations of disciple-based impact.

Disciples Made exists to focus on individual habits and outcomes. We know it takes time to develop transformative community, but are with you in the process to create inspiring results and spiritual impact.


Discovering how God has created us is an important next step for everyone and an exciting ongoing journey!
