Chris & Darci Kovac

Darci & Chris Kovac

Jesus calls us to go and make disciples. But what does that actually look like? How do you get started? Am I even qualified? This workshop will answer these questions and more by giving you a simple model for what life-on-life discipleship looks like and how you can step out and practise it with someone today!

Darci Kovac is a community mentor with The Navigators of Canada in Hamilton, ON. Along with her husband Chris, Darci is actively involved in the disciple-making ministry of West Highland Church, where Chris serves as the Pastor of Outreach. Having both been mentored by a Navigator staff during their undergraduate degrees, Chris and Darci recognize the importance of coming alongside others to help them grow in their faith. Together, they have thirty years of experience discipling, and are passionate about helping equip and mobilize others to do the same.

In this session we will explore the why, how and what of reading about Jesus with friends who are looking into the Bible for the first time. We will look at why we would want to invite our friends to read about Jesus in the New Testament with us. We will examine how we can help create favourable conditions for our friends to encounter Jesus in the Scriptures. Lastly, we will look at some practical tools to help us interact with our friends and Jesus.

Sue Montgomery

Sue Montgomery

 In Luke 4:18 18 Jesus affirmed the promise of Is. 61 that (He) the Messiah would be uniquely anointed by God to “bind up the broken-hearted and set captives free.”  What might it look like to disciple someone, or even a generation, where this is their most urgent need in order to grow?

Sue has been an instructor over the years with the FEB Women’s Institute and serves as vice-chair on the board of Agora Network Ministries. Sue graduated with her degree in Christian Education from Warner Southern University.  She has also trained with Ellel International Ministries, Freedom Session Canada and Heart Sync Counseling Ministries. Sports and reading are two of Sue’s great joys, she has been married to Scott for 35 yrs and they have two married children.

Tony Miltenberger

Tony Miltenberger & Stefan Cherry

Disciple-making in a church doesn’t happen by osmosis. Pastors and ministry leaders must be committed and equipped to building, nourishing, and sustaining cultures of life-to-life disciple-making. What we preach, teach, and model sets the culture for our congregations and ministries. In other words, your church is perfectly calibrated to make the disciples it’s making. This is not another program but a process that you as a pastor can directly impact to build a culture of disciple-making.

About Tony Miltenberger:
Tony is the Director of Leadership and Discipleship for Spirit & Truth, a training and equipping ministry for church leaders. He serves locally at Centerville Grace on the pastoral team as the Associate Pastor of Disciple Making. He is a podcast host, veteran, author, and father to three amazing kids. He is married to his high school sweetheart (Karen) and lives in Centerville, Ohio.

About Stefan Cherry:
Stefan Cherry is an ordained Baptist pastor who is serving on the leadership of the Navigators Church Ministry team helping to grow a national movement of churches that equip disciplemakers to continue to live out the Great Commission. He has served in Africa for over 10 years and lives with his wife and 2 children on a small farm outside of Ottawa. 

Jamie Strickland

Jamie Strickland

Everything we do in the church should be about making disciples. Our small groups should be no different. In this session, we will look at some practical ways to help our Small Groups become spiritual greenhouses in which our disciple-making efforts can flourish.  

About Jamie Strickland:

Jamie worked in campus ministry with Power to Change for 13 years, spending the majority of his time at the University of Guelph but also spent two years serving overseas in Kampala, Uganda. Jamie transitioned to pastoral ministry and became the Associate Pastor of Outreach and Discipleship at Calvary Baptist Church in Guelph. In 2018, he graduated from Heritage Seminary in Cambridge with his Master of Theological Studies. In 2019, Jamie began serving at West Highland as Pastor of Discipleship Ministries and was ordained with the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in 2022.

Don & Lynette Corry

Don & Lynette Corry

As parents and grandparents, we have a unique opportunity to instruct our children in the way of the Lord. Although this looks different for each stage of development, there are key Biblical principles that can guide us throughout the journey. This workshop will look at how applying these principles will help us to point our children toward the transformative love found in following Jesus.

About Don & Lynette Corry:
Don & Lynette Corry have been ministering with the Navigators for over 40 years, primarily in Hamilton. During that time they have ministered at McMaster University, as well as being church leaders and leaders of small groups. Don is currently on staff with the Navigators of Canada mentoring young adults, and is also coaching women’s soccer at Redeemer University. Lynette is a retired teacher and disciples other women. They have three married children and seven grandchildren. All children are engaged in serving Jesus in their local churches. Since no one is the perfect parent, Don and Lynette look forward to sharing their ideas but also some of their challenges along the way. We anticipate we will all learn from each other.
