Ordinary Discipleship Training

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.  -Acts 4:13

Our passion is to make disciple making disciples of Christ.


Our Purpose

The heartbeat of Ordinary is to serve and support the local church wherever "local" is.  We want to be a resource in helping churches and ministries develop discipleship and leadership strategies that work for that body.  Through the lenses of engaging, equipping, and empowering we want to give leaders ideas, strategies, and tools to take back into their ministries and lead in and through discipleship.  We believe the words leadership and discipleship must be interchangeable.  Where leaders are making more leaders, they are making disciples.

The heart of Ordinary is to take students and show them the importance of discipleship, show them the importance of walking with Christ, show them the importance of having a mentor in their life who guides them, who disciples them, and then challenges them to go and do the same.
— Jonathan Nason, Family Life Pastor, CrossGates Baptist

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve the church as they "...go and make disciples of all nations..." (Matthew 28:19)  We seek to have honest conversations about what that looks like in that faith community and to be a resource to the church for continued growth.

We accomplish this through three avenues:

Conferences  Coaching  Teaching
