The vision of Make and Deepen Disciples is to glorify Jesus Christ through mobilizing a multiethnic movement of disciples who make disciples across all ages.
Dear Mission Friends,
When Jesus calls us, he calls us to be both disciples and disciple-makers! This is the heart of what Make and Deepen Disciples is all about. There is simply no greater adventure in life than joining God's mission to make disciples who make disciples. Our dream is to invite you into the joyous adventure of partnering with God to see God's kingdom come. Join us as we seek to go deeper in God's love and further in God's mission together!
