M28 Stories


The M28 disciple-making model has been tested and proven effective in nations such as Australia, China, India, Japan, Nepal, various African nations, Germany, the Philippines, and the U.S. Thousands of people have been trained in the M28 disciple-making model. This movement is penetrating many dimensions of society by multiplying life-transforming groups of Christ-followers who reach out to their communities, engage them in discovery of God and His Truth, and equip them to become disciple-makers as well.


God is accomplishing extraordinary Kingdom advances throughout the world today! The following M28 stories are provided in praise of His redemptive work and for your encouragement as you explore or expand your M28 ministry initiative. These stories are not fictional, though names and places have been changed to protect our brothers and sisters who are from high-risk areas of the world. We pray and trust that God will multiply your M28 investment as well--through lives changed for eternity--here and around the world!

  • It was family problems back home in Indonesia that caused Farah to reach out for encouragement and help. She attended the M28 Bible Discovery time for friendship, but God began to work in her heart. When she prayed to trust Christ, she shared how she felt freedom: “All the anger I had inside left and I now feel free.”


  • Li attended an M28 Bible Discovery group on campus in a group that included a Muslim and a Hindu. Even though each made progress spiritually in their understanding of Christianity, Li made a decision for Christ and now…is being coached to start an M28 Bible Discovery group in his workplace.

  • “I have been using…M28 in a discipleship group for troubled young adults for about a month. Ex-gang members, hustlers, and prostitutes are a part of this group. The Bible is coming alive to them, and the Holy Spirit is changing lives as they engage God through direct study of His Word.” (Austin, Texas)


  • "I am in awe of the Spirit's leading in these [Bible Discovery] sessions and floored by the questions asked and observations made by these students who are reading Scripture for the first time. It is a privilege to journey alongside those who are so spiritually hungry for the Living Truth." (Tina--U.S.)
