WE WORK WITH GOD TO LAUNCH DISCIPLE MAKING MOVEMENTS IN ANGLOPHONE WEST AFRICA
Showing practical love in ways that lead to movements
The story of God’s glory is that since March 2005, the Lord has used the Disciple Making Movement (DMM) process in Anglophone West Africa to catalyze 15,964 new churches with 661,077 new disciples—many from places where the Gospel had not sprouted let alone spread for over a century. However, ‘movements’ of churches planting churches are our main measure of success. We define a ‘movement’ as at least 100 new churches that have multiplied to the fourth generation or beyond. Currently, we are tracking 25 of these movements in Anglophone West Africa.
It's not the size of your fire, it's how many fires you help start!
LAUNCHING MOVEMENTS THAT LAUNCH MOVEMENTS.
New Generations—the name says it all. Our passion is to mobilize disciples that make disciples, resulting in churches that plant churches – creating new generations of disciples and churches. Like Jesus’ parable of the seed that fell on good soil, each individual seed has the power to create countless future generations of new seeds.
Our ministry compass points to the pioneer places, where the gospel has never been or has never flourished. Among these unengaged and unreached peoples, our mission is simple: ‘We work with God to launch Disciple Making Movements’
DISCOVER THE PROCESS
The results have been incredible so far. And yet, the real story is not found in the number of people turning to Jesus today, but in the implications for world missions in the days to come. Watching God work through Disciple Making Movements has left us in awe of what He’s capable of doing in the present and waiting in great anticipation for what He will do in the future.
ANGLOPHONE WEST AFRICA REGIONAL DIRECTOR – BERTILO JOHNSON
God has used Bertilo to raise up over 10,000 intercessors in West Africa and thousands more globally. From March 2005 to the end of 2019, God has used him and his team to launch 24 Disciple Making Movements with over 11,000 new churches and over 500,000 new believers. They were deeply involved in responding to the Ebola crisis in West Africa. When Ebola hit, church planting virtually stopped. The church planters were re-tasked with Ebola prevention training, delivering food, burying the dead, and helping the families left behind. Communities that have never been open to the gospel before are responding. His team also runs programs in need in agriculture, medicine, education, and micro-finance. In 2005, he was awarded an honorary doctor of letters for his unique contributions to his home country. He is married and has seven children, 3 of whom are adopted, war orphans.
