"It is our aim to resource disciple makers and churches with SIMPLE and PRACTICAL for making disciples, developing leaders and launching churches.  Future resources will become available in 2020!"  



"It is our desire to serve as a CATALYST for sparking a disciple-making movement in your church or community.  Here is a brief video on how it works and THREE great opportunities for ongoing training and development." 

How it Works

To get a better idea of how the Banding Together process works, take a look at this short video and consider joining our Facebook Group.

We also offer three options for ongoing training.  Cohorts are for pastors that desire to build disciple-making churches.  Huddles are short-term gatherings to implement Banding Together and On-Site visits can have a variety of applications. 

1. Cohorts

We partner with pastors, districts, and network leaders to offer exclusive online (6-month) cohorts (10-12 people). These cohorts are designed to help pastors and leaders make and multiply disciples and the cohort is titled.... "Building A Disciple-Making Church"


If you are interested in joining a NEW set of cohorts launching this January please E-mail here with your name, church, and affiliation.

2. Huddles

A shorter and more focused version of the cohort, huddles meet for 3 weeks and are Laser-Focused on the "Banding Together" philosophy and process of implementation.  Participants will be trained in the process of "Banding Together" and encourage to multiply that training in their context.  Interested?

E-mail here with your name, church, and affiliation.

3. On-Site

Bring the "Banding Together" disciple-making strategy to your local church by signing up for an on-site training event. We come alongside pastors and lay-leaders to pour fuel on the fires of disciple-making and bring inspiration and strategic thinking to each local context.  E-mail here
