Discipling: We offer whole-life discipling and hope to the poor—mentoring people to become all God intends them to be, so they can do all God intends them to do. Developing: Experienced disciplers help people help themselves—solve their community’s problems, take control of their own lives, and reproduce this process in others. Transforming: While community members grow as whole persons—physically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually—their lives are transformed.
