Onward is a global family of leaders committed to making disciples and planting churches.

What We Do

At the core of our family mission is a commitment to live out the relational rhythms of Jesus. Throughout our journey together, we use a variety of disciple making tools designed to help all Onward cohort members imitate the life of Jesus. We do this in a simple, relational and repeatable manner so that all aspects of our training and equipping can be easily transferred. Three key elements of our training include:

Immersive Training

We provide an immersive hands-on training experience where theology, mission and leadership converge.

Practical Coaching

We provide practical, strategic coaching and extensive resources to help you turn your God-given dreams into reality.

Spirit-filled Soul Care

We provide a relational framework designed to prioritize your spiritual health.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

How We Do It

We journey with each leader through a Spirit-led, strategic process designed to help each God-given dream become a reality.

The Leader

Season 1

Season 1 is all about the leader. Together we will establish simple, relational, and repeatable patterns of discipleship designed to make, mature, and multiply disciples of Jesus.

The Team

Season 2

Season 2 is all about the team. Together we will focus on discovering the dream, developing the vision, and deploying the team to plant a church and reach a city.

The Church & City

Season 3

Season 3 is all about the church and city. By now, the team is making disciples and has planted a church. Together we will focus on developing and deploying this new church to reach and transform a city.

Region & Nations

Season 4

Season 4 is all about helping a seasoned church planter create the space and rhythms needed to disciple and release future church planters in their church, city and beyond.
