Disciple Making Innovation Lab

Churches create a custom disciple making models that not only help each disciple experience deep spiritual transformation, 
but is built for rapid reproduction.

The Discipleship Problem:

You aren’t seeing the results you want with discipleship. Many churches import someone else’s discipleship model or small group structure and it’s just not “taking.” Maybe people are spiritually stuck and aren’t growing like they could, or perhaps your group life strategy has stalled and it’s just not working the way you want it to. Perhaps most of the people in your church aren’t mobilized into bold, every day mission as ambassadors of the Gospel where they live, work and play.

All of these things represent a discipleship problem that’s become an epidemic in the North American church.

The Tailored Solution:

Let’s create a unique disciple making model together that’s got your unique DNA: One that’s built for deep spiritual transformation and rapid reproduction and feels like the unique embodiment of your local church. The best thing? Before we launch it church-wide, you will already know it works.

Welcome to the Disciple-Making Innovation Lab. 

Here’s how the Innovation Lab works.

The Disciple Making Innovation Lab is a gamechanger for churches.

The Lab exists to help you catalyze a discipleship movement that goes far, far beyond the four walls of your church building.

Using the 5 Master Tools we’ve developed to lead churches to Gospel Innovation, the Lab is a 12-month process that helps churches build a completely tailed disciple-making model that is grounded in their theology, mission, vision and ministry convictions.

You don’t import someone else’s model for disciple-making that probably won’t work that well in your place and space. Rather, this process helps you create your own, and having already iterated on it through a period of experimentation, are sure actually works. In other words, it doesn’t just look good on a piece of paper. It works in real life.

Our Master Tools &
the Process of Gospel Innovation

IDENTIFICATION

We must frame the start of this journey by locating the big idea and the problem we’re trying to solve.

IDEATION

We must generate whole new practices, concepts and ways of thinking if we’re going to solve our innovation challenge.

EXPERIMENTATION

We launch, test, adjust and re-launch the innovation until the pilot we are running achieves the measured goals set out.

MOBILIZATION

Once we have breakthrough through piloting our innovation, we need to know why and how it worked so that we can multiply it.

MULTIPLICATION

Make the innovation scaleable, removing as many barriers as possible, for as many people as possible, so you can invite them all into a brand-new breakthrough.
