Training church leaders to develop a culture of discipleship

Effective disciple-making takes place through close relationships. The Missional Discipleship Initiative (MDI) strengthens congregations and their ministries through intentional, authentic, and relational disciple-making. This happens by implementing Missional Discipleship Groups (MDGs) and Learning Circles, or Huddles. 

Mennonite Mission Network is responding to the cry for help initially made by Racial/Ethnic congregations around the church who have called for resources to help them grow and train church leaders through intentional discipling in their home communities. 

Relational disciple-making isn't for the impatient. Although MDI's implementing process lasts eight months, the work of disciple-making takes years.
