Podcast Episode #190

Pastor and author Robby Gallaty joins us to talk discipleship in the local church. Robby has several resources available to believers and churches to help with making disciples who make disciples. He also tells us a story about John Wesley that neither Jonathan nor I had ever heard. It’s quite fascinating.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • How different would other people’s lives be if we really got serious about making disciples who make disciples?
  • For years we have taught people how to share their faith, but have neglected to teach them how to share their life with others.
  • A return to discipleship is what is going to catapult ahead in the future.
  • Most Christians in churches don’t know what to do to disciple others so they don’t do anything at all.
  • People grow better in smaller environments.
  • If you break discipleship down to the bare minimum, people can follow the process.
