TCP Presents: Disciple Making in the City

  • The Painted Door Church 2219 W Grand Ave Chicago, IL 60612 United States (map)

We have reduced Christianity to classrooms, conferences and church services. We are surrounded by passive participants of Christianity, content to soak in information without any intent to make disciples. But the question remains: How do we turn passive participants into active disciple-makers in an ever changing urban context?

Join our next CPCP Presents and hear from Dhati Lewis and other voices in this arena.   
Dhati Lewis (Blueprint Church, Atlanta)

Dhati is the Lead Pastor at Blueprint Church in Atlanta, GA. Dhati, born and raised in California, moved to Texas for his undergraduate studies at the University of North Texas and his graduate studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (Master of Arts in Cross Cultural Ministries). While in Texas, Dhati served on staff at Denton Bible Church for 7 years. He started Plumbline, a very successful college ministry on UNT and TWU campuses. He served as the college pastor there and eventually planted a church, which he pastored for 3 years. 

During that time, he also served as chaplain to UNT’s football team and coached high school football (sports have always been a big passion for Dhati and a large part of how he came to the Lord). Dhati furthered his training in Little Rock, AR at Fellowship Associates in 2008-2009, completing a year long course designed to train pastors in the area of church planting. After completion of that course, Dhati and his family moved from AR to Atlanta, GA with dreams to start a church that was both culturally relevant and biblically accurate. Dhati, along with 25 other individuals moving from TX to GA, launched Blueprint Church in 2009.

Dhati’s passions are for church planting and discipleship. He launched The Rebuild Network in 2011 to answer the call to see more churches planted in the urban context. He currently serves as the president of The Rebuild Initiative.

Dhati is married to Angie Lewis and they have six beautiful children: Trinity, Jade, Briaiah, Dhati Jr, Brayden and Nathaniel.
