The Minneapolis-St Paul Navigators are gathering again for Multiply 2023! This one-day gathering is designed to encourage any person who is intentionally investing in others for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Through relevant and inspiring main sessions for adults, students (AND kids!), practical break-out sessions, and connecting with like-minded believers, we will ask together: how is God at work, and how can I join Him in that work? Also back by popular demand: Discipleship Day Camp for kids!
Lunch is included in the registration fee.
2023 REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Alice Matagora has worked with The Navigators in disciplemaking ministry for nearly 20 years, with experience in college ministry and cultural competency training. She is currently leading a Leader Development Initiative in The Navigators that develops leaders all over the world. She is also a licensed marriage and family therapist. In her book How to Save the World: Disciplemaking Made Simple, featuring original Barna research, Alice combines all of her professional experience as well as her passion for disciplemaking, to equip and empower everyday people to make disciples of Jesus wherever they live, work, and play.
Alice lives in Southern California with her husband RJ, her children Regi and Clementine, and her Daisy dog. In her free time, she enjoys sleeping, eating delicious food, trying new delicious food, being in nature, throwing sticks and rocks in the creek with her son, silly dancing in the kitchen with her little family, working out, and nerdery (Lord of the Rings is her main jam, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, etc.).
During registration, you will have the opportunity to choose from one of our dynamic breakout sessions. Each breakout session will be led by practitioners who are actively living out the call of making disciples. You can view descriptions of each breakout session below.

Breakout Session Descriptions
Letting the Word Speak: Scripture memory and meditation through the seasons of life
Led by Melody Lynch
Regardless of your season in life or the transitions you are facing, God is still speaking and longs to speak to you through His Word in a way that can refresh your soul and accomplish His purposes. Join us for an interactive look into God’s Word as He speaks into our hearts as “light into our soul.”
Grandparent Gathering: Connecting with your Grandchildren
Led by Bruce Knutson
Join other grandparents for a time to share ideas, and learn from one another about praying for and connecting with grandchildren for the sake of the Kingdom.
Sharing Jesus: Advancing His Kingdom Everywhere with Anyone
Led by Randy Johnson
This will be a practical workshop where we will learn together, sharpen skills in sharing Jesus with people from various backgrounds, and grow in faith. Three specific skills will be touched on: sharing one’s faith story in a friendly way, learning the art of story-ing by telling Bible stories, and sharing the gospel simply.
Church: Growing an Intentional Disciplemaking Culture in Your Church
Led by Anthony Bass & Brad Little
Most Christians attend a local church, but are they disciples of Jesus? Two pastors from the area invite you to explore this topic with them in two parts—connecting Sunday mornings to the rest of the week and helping believers become aware of how God is at work in their lives through studying God’s Word. Join us!
Sexual Health and Wholeness: Starting with Yourself, Helping Others along the Way
Led by Beckie Weigel and Caitlin Ogawa
Approaching topics like sexual desire and behavior can be incredibly stressful, but the Spirit can help us as we address this important area. We will learn how to have very practical conversations about sexual topics like porn usage and fantasy in our discipleship. We will also discuss when we are in over our heads and should refer the person we are discipling to someone else.
Coaching as a tool in Discipleship: A COACH APPROACH TO DISCIPLESHIP
Led by Jeanette Frahm
In a world where competing messages are hitting people 24/7, how do we help equip someone to hear the voice of God in their lives? Coaching is a powerful tool that draws out what the Holy Spirit is doing in someone’s life through active listening and strategic questions. This practical and interactive breakout session will look at how coaching differs from other tools in discipleship, provide ample time to practice together, and help you walk away with immediate steps to take in your disciplemaking relationships.
Whole Life Discipleship: God’s Redemptive Purposes
Led by Anna Snider
For those who hold heartache from the world’s brokenness, seeing the gospel as good news for every part of our lives and experiencing our holistic God brings long-awaited good news. Join us for an interactive survey of God’s holistic redemption and restoration in Scripture, starting in Genesis 1. The foundation of God’s redemptive purposes is vital to us seeking both healing in brokenness and flourishing for all members of the Body of Christ- let’s grow in this together!
How to make Disciples in hard places and not give up
Led by Eric Chavoustie
Making disciples is challenging enough but doing it in a hard place where people are experiencing poverty, drug addiction, and complex trauma can make it even more challenging if we are not equipped. Learn and discuss practical ways for making disciples in hard places and what to prioritize so you don’t burn out and quit. Making disciples is simple, but it is extremely costly. Let’s challenge, encourage and support one another on the mission Jesus is calling all of his people to be active members in; making disciples.
Discipling Your Children: Raising Lifelong Followers of Jesus
Led by Dawniqua Bass
What does it take to train our children to become lifelong followers of Jesus? Come to the session and we’ll discuss the significance of teaching, training, and discipling our children to know God, follow God, and trust God. We will examine the critical importance of training our children to stand in this present culture, provide resources to equip parents/caregivers, and tools to design a consistent, intentional strategy for discipling our children to faithfully follow Jesus Christ.
Workplace Panel: Letting Your Light Shine at Work
Led by Grace Joseph
How do you share and show Jesus in a secular workplace? Despite our desires to represent Jesus well at our jobs, it can be challenging to know how to navigate diverse religious spaces, the timing of spiritual conversations, power dynamics, and more depending on our roles, not to mention the deadlines and meetings that can reduce our motivation to connect deeply with our coworkers. This panel of everyday disciplemakers is ready to dive into these and other questions with you! Come join our discussion and see how the Spirit can help us as we seek to live out our faith.
