The heart of our mission is equipping African Christian women to disciple other African women. Women's Discipleship International (WDI) focuses on developing mature disciples of Christ who will be able to teach and equip others and impacted their comnmunities.
WDI discipleship training has two essential components: biblical/theological training and building healthy relationships-with God, with each other, and within the community.
Men's Discipleship International is an affiliated ministry that evolved when they saw the transformation in their women leaders and starting asking "What about us"?
Since training started in 2016 the women have begun an annual Women's Empowerment Conference, helped disciple women leaders in remote communities and other countries...and are excited about what God is doing next!
