MDI is currently on sabbatical. We are building on the innovative work of MDI to redesign the Anabaptist discipleship training to better serve you. Information about enrollment will be shared when available.

Training church leaders to develop a culture of discipleship.


To coach church leaders on how to develop an intentional and relational disciple-making culture within the local church.


MDI accomplishes its vision by using two key vehicles:

  • Virtual Learning Huddles (VLH)
  • Missional Discipleship Groups (MDG)

  • Why MDI?

    You should participate in MDI if...

  • You want believers in your local church to learn how to make disciples that make even more disciples of Jesus.
  • You need your church to develop a simple and strategic Leadership Development Process that continually produces new Missional Leaders.
  • You want to see believers in your church being mobilized towards your immediate mission field with the purpose of expanding God's kingdom.

People are encountering Jesus in powerful ways on a daily and weekly basis. Sometimes it feels familiar. Sometimes it feels totally new!"</span><br></p>
