Northwest Arkansas Influencers is the home of Influencers Global Ministries. The organization began when Rocky Fleming gathered seven men together in 2001 and asked them if they wanted to go on a journey with him to discover more about God than they presently knew. At the time no one had any idea that Influencers was born. The group used handwritten notes from Rocky to take the Journey. Afterwards the men realized they had been discipled and they wanted to share this journey with other men. Influencers became a marketplace ministry of discipleship.
Today in Northwest Arkansas more than two thousand men have gone through the Journey. Our mission remains the same as in 2001, we want to disciple men. Using the Journey we guide small groups of men into the proximity of Christ. During the Journey the men discover that God knows them, He cares about them, He is able to help them and He is willing to help them. From there the men discover the revelation of John 15 and being connected to the vine. Once men understand that Jesus wants a relationship with them and they discover the power of that relationship, it is game over. At that point men begin “Living Out” their sacred responsibility of discipleship at home and at work.
We believe Influencers was birthed in Northwest Arkansas for a reason. With Walmart, Tyson Foods and J.B. Hunt all being located here with tentacles all over the world, we see Influencers who work in these corporations taking this method and this message to the ends of the earth.
