WE WORK WITH GOD TO LAUNCH DISCIPLE MAKING MOVEMENTS IN THE HORN OF 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 The Horn of Africa to catalyze 19,692 new churches with 436,953 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 23 of these movements in The Horn of 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.

SUPPORT THE HORN OF AFRICA
The Holy Spirit is authoring a new era of His work on the earth. Amazing chain reactions of disciples making disciples are fueling a cascade of churches planting churches around the world – often in places where there were never churches before!
We point people to the Bible as their source and ultimate authority so indigenous leaders and churches are not dependent on outside leaders, church tradition, or human curriculum. We trust God’s word and God’s Spirit to guide his people in shaping their lives, relationships, and worship patterns.
The Horn of Africa region consists of Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti, and Eritrea.
ADDITIONAL WAYS TO SUPPORT
There is a growing crisis devastating one of our African regions. For security reasons, we cannot disclose details about the location or identity of the people affected, but the press calls what is happening “genocide.”
H.E.R. project focuses on financial empowerment of women for effective Disciple Making Movements in restricted areas.
Children in the Horn of Africa need our support to provide uniforms and school supplies. Help us to show the tangible love of Christ to these families in need!
