Case Study: New Beginnings
New Beginnings was a growing church, but in 2018, their Senior Pastor, Todd Kaunitz felt like something was missing. The attendance was at an all-time high, but the spiritual depth was low. The Leadership realized that they weren’t making disciples.
In 2020, Replicate partnered with New Beginnings to launch Discipleship Groups (they call them Restore Groups). These groups have become the crown jewel of the church’s strategy. It has become the place where they are developing disciple-makers who are reading the Bible, hearing from the Spirit, sharing their faith, holding each other accountable, and teaching others to do the same.
Discipleship Groups have sparked a movment for New Beginnings. In just two years, they have seen over 200 people join Discipleship Groups. They are experiencing significant increases in worship attendance (up 30%+), salvations, and a spiritual revival through their Prayer Gatherings.
Additionally, the leadership has experienced personal renewal as they have gone from burnt out to being more excited for the future than ever before.
