Small church on a BIG MIssion

Walking alongside as a Barnabas-like encourager 

God has directed my path leading me to provide encouragement for leaders in smaller church contexts.   Provided below is an overview of what I am sensing God is saying to me and what I am being called to do about it.

Purpose - To make disciple-making leaders that equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ regardless of their church size or context


Point of Difference - To deliver coaching and resources for pastors and leaders seeking to lead culture change in smaller church contexts (ie: 75 regular participants in Sunday worship = national median in the United States according to the Hartford Institute for Religion).  

Priority - To CHANGE the world by putting DISCIPLESHIP and MISSION back into the hands of everyday people. 


Providing - A host of resources coupled with Small church on a BIG Mission: Cultivating Missional Discipleship in Smaller Churches including: Webinars, a Disciple Self-Assessment, Coaching for adaptive cultural change, Coaching for leaders and teams, as well as engagement with 3DM's Learning Community process and Network.
