"After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
Luke 10:1-2

WHAT TO EXPECT

DIVERSE COMMUNITY

Each class consists of 72 diverse young leaders from across the city, ranging from over 40+ different churches. This creates an incredibly challenging yet encouraging environment to develop as leaders and local missionaries.

UNIQUE EXPOSURE

Dallas has the 3rd largest disparity gap in America between the rich and poor. Our city can often be divided by location, race, generation and denomination. This program will diversify your exposure and understanding of Dallas and its people.

MISSIONARY TRAINING

For too long "missionaries" have been only perceived as leaders involved in foreign endeavors. Our training will connect you with other local missionaries in your context. We put a large emphasis on discipleship, evangelism, and excellence in your sphere of work.

UNIFIED IMPACT

You're not going to change this city alone. We all value making a difference, but we've each been given different vehicles to do that. We don't believe unity is everyone doing the same thing. It's everyone doing different things in the same direction.


WE WILL CHALLENGE YOU TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL

Jesus said He came to "Seek and save the lost." So if we follow Him, we are on the same mission. You will be developed into a leader who lives the gospel with your life and shares the gospel with your words. Our hope is that God will use you to bring people back to Him.

MAKE DISCIPLES

We're going to invest a ton into you, but we expect you to invest a ton into others. We're all for making impact. But it's only temporary if we're not making disciples. You will be trained and held accountable for discipling another young leader while you're in 72.

STEWARD THE MYSTERIES OF GOD

We are all called to ministry. But not all of us are called to be pastors. By the end of our program we expect you to accelerate in your field of work and be set apart in your work ethic.

"When you’re stepping out and doing what seems crazy to many, it’s comforting to have people who also think its normal to try and change the world. The relationships gained in 72 served as meaningful friendships, volunteers, and advisors for my start-up ministry. 72 also edified me spiritually and allowed me to see areas in my life that I needed to mature in."

- Jahmaol Clark

"I find such joy in seeing the church unite through racial reconciliation. When I went to my first 72 event, it was refreshing to walk into a body of people that didn't look the same and who were excited that we didn't all look the same. God did not make us with the intent to love him separately."

- Hannah Barnett

"72 is an amazing community pursuing their personal life goals while connecting with each other to change the culture around us. 72 helped me in a variety of ways such as public speaking and community awareness. I’m very grateful that I had the opportunity to join 72 and to see how it stretched me to be more vocal and confident in leading." 

- Jonathan Jones
