About the author:
David Oliver Kueker is a church pastor and researcher on evangelism, church growth, disciple making, leadership development, personal transformation and organizational change. He lives and works in the St Louis area.

A full time United Methodist Church pastor for thirty years, he holds a Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary of Louisville, Kentucky, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. After graduation, he began to publish his research online at

David Oliver Kueker has been fascinated by evangelism and disciple making ever since he became a follower of Jesus on the campus of the University of Illinois in 1972 through the ministry of the Jesus People.

He advocates an interpersonal, networking discipleship system that complements and balances the traditional church system. Based on patterns observed in the New Testament, John Wesley and rapidly growing third world cell churches & church planting movements, the network base design approach can effectively make disciples without requiring everything to change. This approach can level the playing field between small and large churches because disciple making is based on effectively nurturing relationships, not buildings, programs or performances.
