Meet The Team


Paul Watson

Founder & Movement Coach

Paul is really good at helping people think through the big picture of what it would take to be a part of starting a movement in their city, state, or province.

     Paul grew up witnessing the birth of modern Disciple Making Movement as his parents worked among an unreached people group in Northern India.  Later, God called him to devote his life to helping people fall in love with Jesus by training disciple-makers and their teams around the world.

     Paul founded Contagious Disciple Making to apply the principles of Disciple Making Movement in the US and Canada so that people who wouldn't normally go to church would have a chance to fall in love with Jesus and live in spiritual community.

Rebecca Ewing

CEO & Strategy and Personal Coach

Beck is really good at helping busy people explore the intersection of disciple-making and lasting social change so they can see their place in God's plan to redeem their families, cities, and nation.

     After working as the Pro-life Coalition Leader for South Carolina in the 2016 Presidential primary election,  Rebecca helped build a non-profit to equip Christians in cultural activism and network among those already active within their culture and community. 

     She created Gospel Engagement Teams that train Christians in apologetics, Biblical worldview, and evangelism and organize participants to culturally engage and transform their cities for Christ.
