Conversion, as Scripture shows, is not just about Jesus’ cross, even though the cross is central. It is the invitation of the gospel to come to Jesus for both salvation and discipleship.

The coupling of these teachings is the whole gospel. We want to emphasize both.

I am convinced that discipleship is nothing less than a strategic activity of any authentic Christian movement or flourishing church. My friends at discipleship.org are deeply committed to making it so across the churches in America.
Discipleship.org's purpose is to help the church and each believer to understand that Jesus was not only the savior but the model we are all to follow if we are to accomplish the task we were given. I am excited that God is bringing together people with the heart to call the church to the right mission and right methods. I am partnering with Bobby Harrington and Todd Wilson in this endeavor.
Discipleship is a lifestyle and discipleship.org's vision is to help every believer to develop that lifestyle. This has been my life vision. I support discipleship.org's and Bobby Harrington and plan to actively work together with him to make the vision a reality.
My life long prayer has been that the church would take up discipleship as its core activity. For that to happen, its leaders would need inspiration, knowledge and resources specific to the task. I am thrilled that Discipleship.org is that place where leaders from around the globe can find what they need. I am delighted to be actively involved with this organization.
