Our story

Our movement began on the streets of Melbourne’s west as Dave and Colleen Lawton prayer walked the local suburbs and shopping centres.

As they pounded the pavement, God laid on their hearts the deep need for people to discover Jesus and the role that followers of Him need to play. This inspired a vision and sparked a search for innovative ways to make disciples. Soon a group of people began to gather to pray … and Praxeis was born.

Today Praxeis works across Australia and the world to join God on His disciple-making mission to all people.
