the brand story


GOMakeDisciples is a brand based on Matthew 28:19: 

“go and make disciples of all nations . . .”

Designed to inspire Christ’s followers to pursue God’s call to make disciples of all nations. No matter what part of the world, no matter what demographic God puts in your heart, we can Build Up Christ’s Kingdom together. 

God is patience personified. This brand took about thirty years to accomplish. 


It was probably a year before I had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that I memorized Matthew 28:19 at a Bible class I was attending with friends back in the Philippines.


Over a decade later, knowing that verse by heart, I was awakened around 4 o’clock in the morning. I started reading Luke 5 where Jesus called the first disciples. He had said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon replied, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” 


When the great I AM speaks, so it IS.


There was the toil. Then there was the obedience. It took more effort and time to do the toil without God’s direction - ending with no results. But, when we obey God, there is clarity, connection, completion, and a copious harvest. The fulfillment of the vision will not delay as Habakkuk 2:3 encourages.

A couple of years ago, the image of the letters G-O-D, with D formed by the two words “MAKE DISCIPLES” kept popping in my head. I did not know what to do with this until my husband started the organization A Buck A Day. We decided to have a designer create several options so we can have the idea realized. 


Our desire at A Buck A Day is to Build Up Christ’s Kingdom through a global harvest of souls. One of the ways we believe we can accomplish this is by empowering churches, ministries, and organizations to raise funds through the sale of the brand’s merchandise so they can “go make disciples.”


Ephesians 4:16 says, “When every part of the body of Christ does its share, it causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” 


There is a great harvest waiting. Let us work together in obedience to God. Together we can do much for God’s glory and the advancement of His kingdom.
