D2MC Fact Sheet

Learning Community icon

Launch and multiply new communities of believers.


Many church leaders concede they are plagued with a feeling that something simply is not working. Making disciples— and making disciples who make disciples—seems difficult if not completely impossible.

Look around, and you’ll find:

  • Questions around who exactly is in your mission field.
  • A state of flux for existing programs. Shifting guidelines are causing turbulent times for leaders.
  • A lack of clarity over which path to take forward in spreading Christ’s love to the hurting.
  • Exhausted, worn-out leadership.
  • Financial fragility and emotional stress related to critical decision-making.
  • Fear of human contact, and this lack of basic connection is wreaking havoc in both work and home life.
  • An openness to reimagine how things have ‘normally’ been done previously. Whether out of necessity or desire, this is an opportunity to try new things!

PLI’s Discipleship to Missional Community helps you take on current challenges by equipping you with new ways of being both leader and missionary. This Learning Community teaches church leaders a repeatable, daily rhythm of imitating Jesus to have greater influence and impact on spreading the Gospel of Christ.

I am seeking to:

Alleviate financial concern

and stress of travel

Collaborate in real

time with leaders facing similar challenges

Tackle the urgency

and opportunity of our current landscape!

Reclaim work/rest rhythms

and be home to spend the evenings with family

Engage Jesus’ way

to “love your neighbor” in new ways

If you’re a leader who longs for something more, consider PLI! You’ve been empowered to lead, and we’ll show you how to use your existing strengths and relationships to:

  • Build a discipling rhythm into your life and ministry
  • Live on mission in a way that is second-nature to you
  • Spread hope by investing in those around you to become leaders themselves
  • See a life of discipleship and mission replicated and lived out in your congregation

Join other ministry leaders facing similar challenges…

PLI’s Discipleship to Missional Community features:

  • A 2 year Learning Community with five online training immersions.
  • Church leaders join their pastor and spouse, creating a unique team with which to learn, participate and journey together.
  • Weekly coaching for the first year provides ongoing encouragement and accountability to the pastor, spouse and leaders. All coaching is done via video conference.

The cost is $2,000 per immersion for a team of 4, $3,000 for a team of 6, and $4,000
for a team of 8. Reserve your spot with a $500 registration fee.

Nothing has changed since Jesus challenged his disciples to “Go and Make Disciples” and yet everything has. The commitment to discipling ordinary people who disciple others can give birth to fresh expressions of the extraordinary mission of God.
