Our Mission

Narrow Gate is investing in Disciples and Equipping Disciple Makers by Mirroring the Methods of The Master.

Becoming a Disciple of Jesus is a lifestyle that cannot be microwaved in six-week studies!

Investing in lives takes time. We disciple for life.

We invest our time, talents and treasures in others, year after year, to consistently mentor, train and coach disciples and disciple makers. We are intentionally stewarding the Master-Apprentice Relationship. As a result, lives are being re-ordered according to the 4 Calls of God: Salvation, Lordship, Disciple and Purpose.


Our Ministry Model


We host 3 year covenant groups with 4-6 believers each. Through our Apprentice of Jesus Curriculum, we are using the methods and teachings of Jesus to assist disciples to re-order their lives according to the 4 Calls of God: Salvation, Lordship, Disciple, Purpose.



Mentoring and training to equip “5 Talent Disciples” who are identified as high impact Christians with a Biblical worldview, reproducing to the 4th generation.


Our Co-Mission Institute provides Pastors and Lay Leaders intensive, individualized coaching to help them grow a thriving disciple for life framework within their existing church culture.

Narrow Gate’s practical approach to disciple making has changed my life and the way I do ministry. I am now equipped and determined to live out the great commission of making disciples of Jesus.”

“I was on the edge of burnout as a pastor when I came into Narrow Gate’s discipleship plan. Now I feel I have a new vision as a disciple maker.” – 

Pastor David Sanders

“Being in a discipleship group has been life transforming. My relationships with my family, friends and most importantly Jesus Christ have deepened because of the time spent with my group praying, studying, serving and sharing life together”

“Bill and Narrow Gate guided me to find my purpose, equipping men to be Disciples. They provided me with the tools and confidence I needed to pursue that mission.”

 – Butch Nicholson

“I am committed to the Narrow Gate ministry for the following reasons. I have witnessed that Christ’s church in America has been declining in attendance, membership and influence in our society for several decades. I strongly believe that Narrow Gate’s focus on using Jesus’ methods of Discipling using a Master to Apprentice relationship with his key disciples is the answer to making his Church relevant, integral and indispensable in our society again!”

“Disciple-making…this is my life now!”
