As many of you know I am in Seattle this week working on a graduate program with The Resurgence Training Center (Re:Train). Each month for the next year I will be traveling to Seattle to take a different course through Re:Train with the outcome being a Masters of Missional Leadership degree.
This weeks course is entitled "Leader as Disciple" and is taught by one of the Mars Hill campus pastors, Bill Clem. After two days of class we have begun to plow through the question, "what is a disciple?"
In many ways it has been a great question to ask because it not only relates to my own personal life as a follower of Jesus and how that plays out, but it also gets right at the core of how churches engage in the mission of "making disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:18-20).
I won't play out my thoughts on this question here in this post other than to say much of my "disciple-making method" is under assessment. Pray for me as I marinate on two days worth of teaching/thinking/observing and learning.
