Through more than 20 years of ministry, God has used Missions Development International’s Integrated Mentoring & Consulting to impact thousands of lives all over the world. While MDI traditionally works with the top leader of an organization, the impact can be seen and felt far beyond that individual.
When a leader approaches MDI, they are generally looking for assistance in a specific area within his/her ministry. But under the surface, so many are feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, or stretched beyond their limits. The impact of these burdens is often felt across the organization.
By walking in relationship with MDI Mentors, God brings leaders back to fullness in Him - transforming and restoring hearts and minds. When ministry leaders are thriving, that means their families, their teams, and those they serve are better positioned to succeed influencing thousands. This is ministry multiplied.
Don't take our word for it, check out the videos below to hear first hand how God is using Missions Development International to strengthen leaders and their ministries.
Ralph & Joni Cook of Lantern Lane Farms (LLF) founded LLF over 15 years ago with a desire to provide affordable and accessible counseling and equine therapy to people in Mt. Juliet, TN. After their start, their ministry began to grow and eventually overtook most of their home, their marriage, and their family life. They knew they had to make a change. After being introduced to MDI, they began a mentoring relationship that exists to this day.
This mentoring relationship brought Ralph & Joni insight, support, and confidence as LLF moved forward, purchased a new facility, and continued to grow. Now, after years of walking with MDI Mentors, their ministry is flourishing. They went from having 4-5 staff members to now having over 20 staff members. Serving only 100 clients a month a few years ago, they now are serving more than 600 clients a month at their new property in Mt. Juliet, TN.
