Disciplemaking for Everyday Believers


I write to encourage and equip everyday Christians to make disciples and live on mission where they live, work, or play.


I help churches and ministries build disciplemaking cultures that moves disciplemaking from the margins to the mainstream.


I come alongside everyday leaders helping them live fruitful and faithful lives through a life and ministry plan.

The alongsider world is Jesus’s world, a place where disciples are developed in relational, intentional, and biblical ways. The alongsider world is wherever everyday Christians live, work, play, or worship.

In the alongsider world, everyday Christians walk next to friends helping them do a few simple lifestyle practices -- focus on Jesus, engage with the Scriptures, encourage accountability, application, affirmation, and live on mission.

I’m Bill Mowry and I’m a practitioner in the alongsider world. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my wife Peggy and our dog Ginger. We serve with The Navigators Church ministries, helping churches around the world multiply disciples through disciplemaking cultures. My contribution to Jesus’s alongsider world is through writing, teaching, and coaching.
