We prioritize our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, knowing that our identity can only be found through intimacy with Him. Everything in our Christian walk flows from our time spent with the Lord. We long to grow in intimacy with Jesus, making our faith personal. Intimacy with Jesus births passion that fuels our faith.
Instead of individualism and isolation, we commit to sacrificing our time and schedule to invest in others, building intentional relationships anchored in the Lord. We do what we say, we make time for others, and we maintain teachable hearts. We understand that our lives matter because the lives of others depend on us.
We commit to being disciples who make disciples, focused on putting our faith into action. We act out of calling from a place of intimacy and passion produced in time spent with God. First we sit and listen, then we go and do. While Ordinary Men groups are designed to strengthen and empower the believer, we do not exist to create a “holy huddle.” On the contrary, OM believes that as each participant becomes fully alive in his individual walk with Christ, from this place of intimacy he will be empowered to reach others around him who are lost. So while Multiplication within Ordinary Men groups will be specific to believers participating in intentional discipleship, the result will, and must be, a spreading of the Gospel among the communities in which we live and the people with whom we interact daily. The ultimate goal is that each man will bring new believers into the OM process and teach them to be disciples who make disciples.
Ordinary Men has seen amazing growth over the past two years—growth that can only be explained by divine intervention. We believe that as we continue to follow the model of Christ (making disciples who make disciples), we will see exponential multiplication. Using conservative numbers, the bell curve below clearly shows the results of a discipleship model. *Projections are based on 60% current leader retention and 25% of participants multiplying into new groups
Starting number of small groups: 10
