Derek Miller


"I learned a completely paradigm-shifting way of discipleship that continues to challenge me every day. This training actually saved me from completely giving up on ministry altogether. This is the most Jesus-like thing I can remember belonging to. And that is not hyperbole."


Ivy Linger

Art Teacher

"Gravity has given me a different way of thinking about discipleship and being the Church, and through the regular connection with people outside of my normal contexts, I've been able to learn from others with different backgrounds and convictions."


Alan Hirsch

Author and Founder of Forge Mission Training Network

"The Gravity folk are the real deal. Taking Jesus as their primary reference point, they help churches develop discipleship practices that can go to scale. Thumbs up!"

"In my advocacy work, I became more settled in knowing that my identity, security and belonging is in Christ and not what other people say or what I do or what I have. my view of God has changed and it has been so life-giving for me!"

Michael Dean

Teacher and pastor

"Gravity helped me learn a better way to see and understand the work of God in my life, and their discipleship process concretely puts the focus on how God is at work in the lives of everyone involved and not merely on learning more facts about God."
