What Is Discipleship?
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be addressing the idea of discipleship at threadsmedia.com and in our upcoming newsletters. Last week, we started the conversation by establishing that discipleship is much more than a program we add to our already busy calendars. Instead, it’s a way of life. You can read that article HERE.
Although we have opinions as to what successful discipleship looks like, we certainly don’t have all the answers. As you know, discipleship is one of those things that everyone wants but many struggle to pursue or even understand.
With this said, we’d like to open up the dialogue. We’ll be responding as you comment. In addition, we’ve recently surveyed some of the nation’s best collegiate and young adult ministry leaders about their opinions on this topic. Our plan is to use those results and this forum to help shape our future discipleship posts.
