Disciple-Making Lab

Are you struggling to make disciples who make disciples in your context?

Are you lacking a clear pathway for developing disciple-making disciples?

Making disciples of Jesus is not as lonely, complicated, and draining as we’ve made it out to be.

Every follower of Jesus can be equipped and empowered to make disciples in the everyday stuff of life, together.

GET READY

The Disciple-Making Lab is a ten-month journey, hosted by Jeff Vanderstelt and Ben Connelly, to equip you and your team to create a holistic disciple-making pathway for your church.

JOIN US FOR THE JOURNEY

You and your team will:

  • Recenter your vision on Jesus and growing in the gospel as it applies to all of life.
  • Cultivate your environments and culture to fit your desired outcomes.
  • Develop and unite around a holistic definition of “disciple.” 
  • Create a unique pathway for your disciple-making efforts.
  • Make a plan for every step of the disciple-making pathway.
  • Understand different needs in the various stages of biblical spiritual maturity.
  • Design and experience transferable tools that lead to disciples who make disciples.
  • Have clear next steps to implement these elements in your various disciple-making environments.

For over 30 years, we’ve come alongside leaders of various churches, denominations, and organizations, equipping them to create unique disciple-making pathways for their contexts. The Disciple-Making Lab leads to proven, multi-faceted outcomes—for both your leaders and your church as a whole.
