We believe that discipleship is more caught than taught. With this in mind we have created a process where 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.
Educate and Inspire
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 their lives 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 want to use our lives to advance his Kingdom. It is putting our excuses aside and a focus on his power in and through our lives versus a focus on our abilities.
We are individual groups of Ordinary Men that together make up a large group that is focused on allowing the Lord to work in our lives to advance his Kingdom and Church through discipleship.
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 that relies on the leadership of many. OM has created a system where the speed and level of growth is contingent upon ordinary men putting the great commission into action. We only grow through ordinary men leading other ordinary men. The same model Jesus gave us.
We are a large organization that is made up of many small groups. We support and facilitate small groups, while connecting each group to a larger vision.
