the brand's 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, through this brand we believe we can Build Up Christ’s Kingdom together; no matter what part of the world you come from, no matter what demographic God puts in your heart to reach.
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 as a college student 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 takes more effort and time for 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 through the GOmakedisicples brand.
We share it with churches. We show it to ministries and organizations encouraging them to use it to raise funds or to wear when they go to missions or events.
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 hand in hand in obedience to God. Together we can do much for God’s glory and the advancement of His kingdom when we GOmakedisciples.
