Visual storytelling is a powerful way to communicate with a broad audience.  This collection of visuals conveys biblical narratives and spiritual truths in a way that’s accessible.

The discipleship videos present a pathway for growing as an ambassador for Jesus in any context (neighborhood, workplace, gym, sports teams or any place or activity where people gather). The content is arranged by the seasons of mission - Entry, Plant, Grow, Harvest, and Train.  

The seasons correspond to the Four Fields of Kingdom Growth strategy developed by Nathan and Kari Shank.  Credit is also given to Chinese missionaries Ying and Grace Kai and many others who have labored to make disciples who make disciples in their unique contexts. 

The content below was either influenced by or adapted from the work of others or created through practice in the North and South American context. Together they,

  • Help lead someone to Christ in a reproducible way..
  • Support group leaders in disciple-making, create a culture of multiplication, build a biblical worldview, and present comprehensive strategies in a simple way.
