Welcome to the Alongsider world. I’m Bill Mowry, the author of The Ways of the Alongsider. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my wife Peggy. We minister with The Navigators Church Ministries, helping churches around the world build disciplemaking cultures.

Check out my stories and resources about disciplemaking. It’s my prayer that many people will experience the joy and privilege of helping others follow Jesus.
