There is a difference between Evangelism and Discipleship

For approximately four years, a church which I attended was trying to develop a Discipleship Training Center. During our beginning stages, we polled the congregation to see what their experiences had been with Discipleship. To our surprise, the majority of them had no idea what discipleship was and the rest thought that Discipleship was synonymous with Evangelism. This misunderstanding was as prevalent among church leaders as it was among the laity.

For so many years there was…

Understanding Discipleship

I recently taught a Bible study on the Great Commission. I wonder how many times I've read or studied or taught or heard someone else teach on or preach on those verses. Obviously, this was not unchartered territory for me. But God used that opportunity to help me think through this passage in a new way.


First, if we study Matthew 28:19-20 without digging into verse 18, we've skipped the most important part. The power of the passage is found in verse 18––"All authority in…

"90 Minutes In Heaven" by Don Piper - A Book Review

This true story is written by and about a pastor (Don Piper), who was killed instantly in a fatal accident on his way home from a pastor’s conference.

While the emergency team was waiting for the coroner’s vehicle to come and pick up Don’s dead body, another pastor came along and was told by God to pray over “the man in the red vehicle”. When the EMT’s told this other pastor that the man in the red vehicle was dead, the pastor insisted that he pray over him, as God had…

Becoming Pregnant with the Purposes of God

One year I received a Christmas card from a mentor of mine, he signed the card, "May You Become Pregnant With the Purposes of God. He knew that part of my history involved issues with infertility but he also knew that my heart longed to be involved in some sort of ministry. God always seemed to speak to me through this friend and so I began to pray about his message to me. Instead of praying for more children, I simply prayed that God would indeed let me become pregnant with His purposes and…

PnP On The Road

My wife, Patti, and I are seeking God's leading in an ever evolving and dynamic as His Spirit guides. We are committed to discipleship in the ancient sense of Soul Friend (Anam Chara) from Celtic church times (Patrick, Columba, Colman, etc.) We "connect" with others heart to heart in mentoring individuals, couples and small groups, we teach and equip in churches of all kinds and sizes, and we embrace whatever God places at our feet each day, trusting that our "ministry" will always be dynamic .… Continue

GREAT READ - John Piper, THINK!

Just finished Piper's new book, THINK. It is a wonderful call for us - individually and collectively as the Church - to think, to read, to reason, to meditate on our faith and on the glories of our God and our Savior Jesus the Christ. I found myself wanting to highlight almost every paragraph. Piper has a way with words that makes you think, that lead you to deep questions, and always points you to the Holy Spirit and The Bible as the sources for the answers. I heartily recommend this book to… Continue

Becoming Square–Discipleship Inside Out

Awhile back, I worked on a Habitat for Humanity home. During the afternoon, all work came to a stop while a small group worked to square up the framework on the house and the roofing tresses. A group of almost 50 workers stood back and watched them work, pushing one wall and pulling another, until the framework was completely squared. Only then did the rest of us go back to work to put the outside “skin” on the frame.…
