Providing Training & Resources in Discipleship & Evangelism Globally
Through our ministry model we envision lay people taking on their God-given roles in ministry and assisting the pastoral staff to accomplish God’s purpose for His church.
Would you like to partner with us?
Without your prayers and financial support, we would not be able to provide discipleship and evangelism seminars. Your partnership enables us to equip and motivate believers to stand firm in their faith and disciple others in order to reach the world for Jesus Christ.

Teaching & Training Disciples of Christ Globally
The vision of STRIDE International is to see growth in the spiritual life of churches by providing simple training and resources in discipleship and evangelism. Through our ministry model we envision lay people taking on their God-given roles in ministry and assisting the pastoral staff to accomplish God’s purpose for His church. We see believers growing spiritually through Jesus’ simple disciple-making process in Mark’s Gospel that will enable them to become fully devoted followers of Christ (disciples) who reproduce themselves in others (disciple-makers). We also envision the church having a renewed commitment to engage and reach our hostile culture (personal evangelism) for Jesus Christ.
What Others are Saying About Our Discipleship Seminars
Dr. Rob McCleland
President at John Maxwell Leadership Foundation
I’ve read the Gospel of Mark countless times, but failed to surface these latent discipleship truths. The resources and seminar offered through STRIDE International reveal that the suffering we eschew brings the sanctification that we long for. Obedience sometimes hurts, but it’s not nearly as painful as the disappointment and regret we’ll suffer as nominal Christians.
This is for all believers who desire to grow spiritually and impact their world for Jesus Christ.
Dr. Onesimus Ngundu
Research Associate University of Cambridge, UK
The Gospel of Mark is used as a springboard to challenge Christian churches to be engaged in life-transforming discipleship.
This seminar reveals what true Christian discipleship involves and how believers can become remarkable disciples of Jesus Christ.
Pastor James Go
United Baptist Church, CA
When it comes to discipleship, many in the Western church have embraced a ‘smorgasbord’ kind of Christianity, choosing the easy way and avoiding what is demanding. The resources and seminar offered through STRIDE International reveal Jesus’ simple disciple-making process from Mark’s Gospel.
To all those who aspire to become remarkable disciples, this seminar will convict, challenge, and motivate you to grow in your relationship with Christ and invest in the lives of others for Jesus’ sake and the proclamation of the gospel.
Christian congregations will greatly benefit from these resources and seminars.
