Multiply: Multiply exists to serve local churches by encouraging and equipping disciples who make disciples in all nations. We do this by providing biblical resources and hosting gatherings that prepare followers of Christ to go, baptize people, and teach them to obey everything Jesus commanded – including the call to make disciples.If you would like more information about Francis Chan or to purchase more material created by him, please go to: www.crazylove.org

Read About the Ministry Dreams of this Fellow Christian Leaders Institute Student:
"I'm a loving father of eight kids; six girls and two boys, of which three are with my best friend, my support system, the most beautiful woman in the world, my wife Keionna D. Acie. I'm currently a Service Technician for Medical Modalities a medical supply company for home patients. Through all the ups and downs and spiritual warfare my faith in Jesus Christ grew and that's why it's time to pick up my cross and follow The Lord, for I have no choice but to give my all to him and do his will.
Proverbs 19:21 ESV Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.
I am going to use my ministry training to gain a better understanding of the Bible. Not only to just learn it but to understand it and apply it to my everyday life. Ministry training will help develop my walk with God and my character here on earth. I would also like to be able to apply this training to help lead others on a righteous and rewarding path being able to build a relationship with Christ, renewing their minds with the word to have faith to receive what grace has made available"
