    Reframing Discipleship - S2 - Ep. 010

    Reframing Discipleship - S2 - Ep. 010

    Ryan, Mark, and Emily talked about reframing discipleship and how youth ministry discipleship too-often focuses only on the content aspect (which is important for sure) but also needs to engage both the head and heart. With the goal of becoming more like Jesus, we need to include sacrifice and service as a core aspect of our approach to discipleship.

Great insights and encouragement

I’ve enjoyed listening to all the guest speakers and sometimes the hosts ; ) The show is comical but also provides good advice and insights. The quality of the podcast is top notch. The production of the podcast is well thought out and professional.

Goals

Thank you guys for your podcast on goals. I listen to your podcast on my drive into work each day. On my drive I cross the Appalachian Trail. I’ve always wanted to hike the trail so after listening to your podcast, I ran the entire 2,181 miles of the Appalachian Trail (twice) this morning spreading the joy of the Gospel and the brilliance of communism (on paper). It was the best 3 hours in my entire life. I also stopped and asked everyone I saw what I should do in youth ministry. I have the next 5 years planned out. Thanks for those great tips!
God bless
