Our Current Ministry Focus


Our vision is to help plant networks of intentional, personal disciple-makers in a variety of churches so that they will carry out the mission of Matthew 28:18-20 for generations to come.  We are currently ministering to men and women who are leading their own disciple-making ministries in New England.
