WE WORK WITH GOD TO LAUNCH DISCIPLE MAKING MOVEMENTS IN NORTH 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 North Africa to catalyze 148 new churches with 1,020 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. We are expectant for the Lord to begin cultivating these movements in North 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.

GO NORTH INITIATIVE
God is at work in North Africa!
Join with us as we mobilize Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa, training and deploying them as missionaries to North Africa. Three-quarters of North Africa’s 385 people groups have fewer than 2% who are followers of Jesus. Many are desperately searching and eager to find fulfillment in knowing who Jesus really is. When touched with the gospel, many become committed Christ-followers, the next generation of disciple makers who will spread the life-giving message of Jesus to their families, their communities, and the entire nation.
