Is God Preparing a Spiritual Awakening among the Millennials? | Discipling Culture

Is God Preparing a Spiritual Awakening among the Millennials-

Original post: Is God Preparing a Spiritual Awakening among the Millennials? – Discipling Culture This article caught my attention because it wasn’t bashing millennials for a change. Nor was the author crying that the end of evangelicalism is near due to the decline of millennials attending church services. Mike Breen, who I quote from a lot on this […]

Done with Church, But Not with God | Holy Soup

Church Refugees: Done with Church Not with God

Today’s blog post is inspired by Done with Church, but Not with God | Holy Soup. Last week I posted a half-written-by-me/half curated post about the buzz surrounding the done with church movement — if it can be called a “movement”.  I had a hunch it might get a few more hits than my normal posts.

Let your disciples outpace you

This past weekend my disciple Raul came over to our apartment, urgently wanting to talk to Lili and me after having just got back within the last hour from a 10 day trip into the jungles of Pucallpa. When I got the call I leaned over to my wife and said “please God don’t let something bad […]

Information, Imitation and Innovation | Podcast

This week I continue with my flow of thoughts from last week concerning making disciples. We hold discipleship as one of our main core values in our ministry Oikos, and seek to reproduce reproducers. Which is why we have a balance of informal and formal discipling. We spend time hanging out and goofing around with our disciples […]

Why I Harp on Discipleship | Podcast Episode

There’s really ONE specific thing Jesus commanded us to do: MAKE DISCIPLES of the Nations. Yet, depending on who you talk to, this is viewed as optional, or something only special people like pastors or missionaries do. Today I share from my heart a personal ‘kairos’ moment that changed everything for me: my ministry focus, […]
