Featuring: Pete Scazzero and Robby Gallaty
Hosted by: Bobby Harrington
One of the key ingredients that is missing in many approaches to disciple making is emotional health. Put bluntly – many people have a difficult time making disciples because they are emotionally unhealthy.
Do you want to better understand emotional health in disciple making?
Join Bobby Harrington of discipleship.org as he hosts Peter Scazzero, author, speaker and leader of Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, and Robby Gallaty, author, speaker and leader of Replicate Ministries as they discuss emotional health. Robby will share some key insights that he gained after working through Pete Scazzero’s material.
Peter Scazzero is the founder of New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, New York City, a large, multiracial church with more than seventy-three countries represented. After serving as lead pastor for twenty-six years, Pete now serves as a pastor at large and founder of Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, a groundbreaking ministry that transforms churches through multiplying deeply changed disciples and leaders. He is the author of a number of bestselling books, including The Emotionally Healthy Leader and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.

Robby is the founder of Replicate Ministries and he has served as the senior pastor of Long Hollow Baptist Church (Hendersonville, TN) since 2015. He wasn’t always a pastor, though. For three years, he battled a drug addiction that ravaged his life. A $180 a day heroin and cocaine addiction forced him to steal $15,000 from his parents. After living without gas, electricity, and water for months, losing 8 of his friends to drug related deaths, watching 6 friends arrested, and completing two rehab treatments, Robby remembered the gospel that was shared with him by a friend in college and was radically saved on November 12, 2002. Eight months later, David Platt, a seminary student and church member at the time, asked Robby to meet weekly for accountability, prayer, and bible study. For the next 2 years, David installed a passion for missions, expository preaching, and disciple-making in his life. He also encouraged Robby to go back to school to pursue theological education. Robby completed his Masters of Divinity Degree in Expository Preaching in 2007 and his Ph.D. in Preaching in 2011 from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Today, Robby’s gospel conviction and evangelistic zeal drive him to passionately “make disciples who make disciples.” In addition to his leadership at Long Hollow, Robby is also the founder of Replicate Ministries and the author of several books, including Growing Up, Firmly Planted, and Rediscovering Discipleship. Robby and his beautiful wife, Kandi, have two young sons: Rig and Ryder.
