Dhati is the Lead Pastor at Blueprint Church in Atlanta, GA. Dhati, born and raised in California, moved to Texas for his undergraduate studies at the University of North Texas and his graduate studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (Master of Arts in Cross Cultural Ministries). While in Texas, Dhati served on staff at Denton Bible Church for seven years. He started Plumbline, a very successful college ministry on UNT and TWU campuses. He served as the college pastor there and eventually planted a church, which he pastored for three years. During that time, he also served as chaplain to UNT's football team and coached high school football (sports have always been a big passion for Dhati and a large part of how he came to the Lord). Dhati furthered his training in Little Rock, AR at Fellowship Associates in 2008-2009, completing a year long course designed to train pastors in the area of church planting. After completion of that course, Dhati and his family moved from AR to Atlanta, GA with dreams to start a church that was both culturally relevant and biblically accurate. Dhati, along with 25 other individuals moving from Tx to GA, launched Blueprint Church in 2009.

Dhati's passions are for church planting and discipleship. He is currently getting his Dmin at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Great Commission Mobilization, with a focus on planting multiethnic churches in the urban context. He has been a part of planting several churches in cities across the country and continues to train scores of leaders to this end. Dhati serves as the BLVD Experience Team Director with the Send Network Team at the North American Mission Board.

Dhati is married to Angie Lewis and they have six beautiful children.


Workshop Session 4: Pipeline Creation: Mobilizing Missional Disciple-Makers
How one views the church will dictate how one approaches ministry. For many the church is the guardian of truth so the church becomes a classroom; for others the church exists as a place for personal encouragement so the church becomes a support group. While there is truth to these perspectives on church, they are subordinate. We need truth and encouragement because we have been given a mission to accomplish. When that mission is in view, discipleship will go from being a ministry of the church to being the ministry of the church – making the church in and of itself a pipeline for future leaders.
Time: Wednesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
