Joe Valentino
Campus Pastor, Upper Arlington Lutheran Church; Lytham Road Campus

How does a church change its culture to a place where disciplemaking is a way of life? Bill Mowry’s book “The Ways of the Alongsider” is helping us do this. The Ways of the Alongsider maps out an intentional guide for disciplemaking. The book teaches such simple tools as building authentic relationships, helping others love…

Lisa Harrison
Elementary Reading Specialist and Woman’s Leader

I so enjoy using The Ways of the Alongsider. It encourages disciplemaking to be a natural part of life where we come alongside people, helping them move closer to Christ. God has used the book to build confidence in women’s lives, that they too can disciple others. In using this book with women, we found…

Bryce Kurfees
Financial Planner

I love Bill’s statement that “most of disciplemaking is sticking with people until they get it.”  Bill lives the ways of an alongsider, sticking with people like me, applying the love described in 1 Corinthians 13.  Many of us in the Christian life have never experienced an alongsider in our lives. Sometimes we’ve been hurt…

Fred Blackman
Business Owner and Church Leader

As an elder in my church and small business owner trying to manage a multitude of challenges, I prayerfully enlisted Bill’s help to coach me through the changes and challenges that I face as a leader.

Geoff Geyer
Pastor, Zanesville Neighborhood Church

In 2015 we started Zanesville Neighborhood Church with a group of people who were passionate about living on mission with God and making disciples. While our church, like many others, knew what God was asking us to do, we needed help on how to do it. Bill’s coaching on the how of disciple-making has been timely and critical for our church…

Aimee Worley
Connections Director

The Navigators did something different in their disciplemaking training. They led us back to our neighborhoods! Our church family has always had a heart for serving in our neighborhood but it was often limited to a one time, do good event. Now, since we’re making strides to build a disciplemaking culture, our outreach and service looks different….

Pastor Eric Waters
Pastor

I’m excited about what God is doing through our partnership with Bill and The Navigators to build a disciplemaking church. We started small with a Discipleship Leadership Team, whom I led through The Ways of the Alongsider. Last September, each person on that team applied what they learned from the Alongsider by leading a discipleship…

Sheriff Russ Martin
Delaware County Sheriff, Executive Director PLI Global

Despite being a senior law enforcement executive, I knew I wanted to stay focused and finish strong in both my personal and professional life. Bill coached me through the process of determining my personal vision statement and priorities. As a result of our time together, and Bill’s mentorship, I’ve gained a richer insight into how…

Rev. Malcom Davis
Senior Pastor

Bill’s gifting is not only in helping leaders to understand the necessity and potential of creating a discipleship culture in the local church, it is a life coach – discipling leaders to greater faithfulness and fruitfulness in their calling as Christ followers. With Bill’s partnership, I am experiencing renewed passion for the work of the…

Cedric Brown
Regional Leader, Navigator Church Ministries

I first used The Ways of the Alongsider ten years ago.  I started out with two leaders who have since grown into the ministry. Both men have told me that The Ways of the Alongsider gave them a vision to make disciples who make disciples.  By far it is the best on the market for…
