Don Stubbs & Travis Troyer met by diving intervention. Don spent most of his adult life in Chicago working at Moody Bible Institute, Inner City Impact, and then becoming one of the founders of GRIP Outreach for Youth. During a fundraising trip for GRIP Don met Travis who at the time was seeking God's direction for his life after pursuing his own dreams in the Sports Entertainment Industry. Travis moved to Chicago to work with GRIP and it was there that the LORD put in their hearts to launch a discipleship ministry. In April of 2009 they took the step of faith, moved to Travis's parents house in Ohio and Off The Wall Discipleship was birthed. From our humble beginnings we continue to strive to follow God's leading for the ministry as we seek to make passionate disciples of Jesus in all we do.
The ministry began with Don & Travis living in a house with 5 guys. God has graciously opened doors and provided for us over the years. He has brought us a staff from all over the world to join us in the mission of making passionate disciples of Jesus. We currently have 50+ young people being intensely discipled through our community in New Philadelphia, OH, East Greenville, PA, and Gowen, MI. We have seen young people go onto the mission field, become pastors, husbands & wives, fathers & mothers, and most importantly we have seen them understand and live out the call of disciple-making wherever God takes them.
