Acts 4:13 says, “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” 


When reading the Word of God we quickly realize that God has called Ordinary Men throughout history to advance the Kingdom.  God is still doing just this today, and we exist to lead ordinary men to the realization that God wants to use them in extraordinary ways today.  


The name Ordinary Men is not an excuse or a profession of mediocrity.  Instead it is a war cry—a realization of the fact that God uses us despite our past, our failures, and our shortcomings.  It is a profession of our faith in God’s willingness and desire to use our lives to advance His Kingdom.  It is putting our excuses aside with a focus on His power in and through our lives, versus a focus on our own abilities.  


We are individual groups of Ordinary Men.  Together we form a much larger group that is focused on allowing the Lord to work in our lives to advance His Kingdom and Church through discipleship.




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. 

Intentional Relationships

Instead of individualism and isolation, we commit to sacrificing our time and schedules 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 other’s lives 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.

Drag to adjust

Starting number of small groups: 10

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


We believe that discipleship is more caught than taught.  With this in mind we have created a process by which we model discipleship within a high challenge, high grace environment.  This model is highly reproducible over many generations, and creates a clear path for multiplication of new groups.

Small Groups

This is the core of what we do. Each group goes through our Ordinary Men’s year long study provided at no cost via our online resource portal.

Make Disciples

At the end of each group we encourage members to lead their own group. We call this multiplication. The OM study points men to be disciples who make disciples. We don't just encourage disciple making, we provide next steps and resourcing.


Ordinary Men provides a free online portal for both leaders and participants. We provide step-by-step processes for leaders with resources for each step. Every leader and participant is given access to a free online portal where they can access all resources and information needed to lead and participate. Instead of simply encouraging men to disciple others, we have taken away the obstacles and give practical steps to discipleship.


We believe in discipleship at all levels of the organization. When a participant steps into leadership (multiplication) we provide a mentor to assist him in the journey. We never want anyone doing discipleship alone, and we believe that as you disciple others you should also be discipled. In most cases the new leader is mentored by their previous group leader. This creates a great next step for previous leaders and builds upon a relationship that already exists.

Educate and Inspire

We provide resources, encouragement, podcasts, blogs, videos, etc for our current and past participants as well as the general public. We connect participants to a greater vision and to our overall culture, while continuing to engage past participants and attracting the hearts and interest of future participants.


Throughout the year, Ordinary Men hosts local, regional, and national gatherings. These gatherings point men to Jesus and help participants understand that we are part of a larger network⁠—a movement that has the ability to be highly influential and effective in changing society.

Ordinary Men is a Divinely-inspired movement that will sweep across this nation and change society through intentional discipleship that produces exponential growth. 


Being a Divinely-inspired movement is at the heart of OM.  First and foremost we follow the vision that God has put on our hearts.  Fighting against the urge to do things the way we want, instead following the vision he has placed on our hearts.  We believe we will see a movement that will sweep across this nation and beyond and this will only happen with divine intervention.  


This vision is accomplished by creating an organization that is not about the leadership of a single person, but rather one that relies on the leadership of many.  OM has created a system in which the speed and level of growth is contingent upon ordinary men putting the Great Commission into action.  We only grow through the process of ordinary men leading other ordinary men, the same model Jesus gave us.  


We are a large organization made up of many small groups.  We support and facilitate small groups while connecting each group to a larger vision.


With the OM platform you can point men to Jesus and discipleship using an easy step-by-step process and resources to provide so that those in your group can take the next steps. Ordinary Men was founded through groups of individuals who wanted to be challenged in their faith and grow in discipleship. The platform is excellent for any man who would like to not only be discipled, but to provide resources for those in their group to multiply into new groups. While Bible studies are good, they lack the multiplication process that Jesus calls us to the great commission.


Ordinary Men is the perfect platform to breathe life into the discipleship culture in your church by pointing men to intimacy with Jesus, intentional relationships with one another, and multiplication. Men's ministry is often a struggle for many churches, and we believe OM is a great solution. We provide the materials, resources, and mentorship for your groups at no charge, taking the burden off your staff and your budget. Through the OM platform, we expect and promote multiplication; thus a single group of 10 men in year one can easily result in 5-10 new groups in year two. This means you could have 50-100 men engaging in discipleship by month 13. Within a few years, the culture and mindset of the men in your church will change to that of pursuing relationships with one another, a focus of action in their faith, a pursuit of deep intimacy with the Lord, and the mindset and behaviors of being disciples who make disciples.
