WHO? For mission agencies, key urban churches and their leaders

WHAT? Experiencing renewal

WHEN? By hosting a 1-2 day RBD at a team or church retreat and responding to Christ's call "follow Me" in all areas of personal life and ministry

WHERE? We come for FREE to you on our way to or from AFRICA

WHY? Missionaries and pastors cannot make disciples UNTIL they learn what "disciple" meant to Jesus. Sacrifice, sincerity and devotion cannot take the place of doing what Jesus said to do. 
WHO? For churches, pastors and individual Christians

WHAT? Experiencing renewal

WHEN? When attending our RBD series, and its training in DBS and DMM Prayer

WHERE? We come to you, even flying to your city for FREE. Or we host you in our homes for 1-2 full day trainings for FREE.
Or leaders come to us in Philadelphia and we host you for 1-2 days in our home fpor FREE

WHY? The Great Commission cannot be fulfilled where NT discipleship is not understood and followed because the single command of the GC is "make disciples!" Making Christians is different from making disciples.
WHO? For pastors and leaders who are willing to work with other churches for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom in their cities and nations

WHAT? Experiencing renewal

WHEN? By hosting Ed for a 1-5 day RBD and by obeying Christ's commands in place of all other strategies

WHERE? We fly for FREE to your city but need you to provide food and housing in an adequate, safe home or other lodging

WHY? Western strategies are failing as they have largely NOT led to the making of disciples who make disciples.
