About The Team
Replicate Ministries exists to equip local churches to make disciples who make disciple-makers. We do this through sound Biblical methods for training and replicating disciples. These methods have proven to be effective when implemented in the local church. In the last decade, these intentional disciple-making strategies have shown to develop mature followers in our context. It is the team’s desire to share our passion for replicating disciples with other church leaders.
