History & Lead Team


After being an organic ministry movement for many years, Family Discipleship Ministries was officially organized and chartered in 2000.  

Eddie & Beth Taylor founded the ministry with Ray & Sabrina Owens to  be a vehicle for life-giving ministry and churches.  Rodney & Renee Thrift were added to the Board of Directors in 2005. 

In 2012, the Directors discerned strong guidance from the Lord to invest their focus in ministry to the ministers & leaders of the network.  God has blessed that effort and the network has expanded. In 2013 the Directors were renamed as the Lead Team.  

We are continuing to seek ways to be found faithful to the call and gifts that Holy Spirit has provided to us.
