    To MAKE a disciple begins w/ connecting someone to Christ through salvation and then connecting them to His church for ministry care and concern.

    Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing w/ you my heart as it pertains to God’s call on our lives to make disciples of all nations. And if you remember, a disciple is more than a convert, but a person who’s been saved and is now in the process of becoming just like Jesus. In Matthew 28:19-20 – more

  • M3 – Make Disciples 1 Matthew 28:19-20

    Contributed on Apr 11, 2019

  • Identity 1– Created For Relationship Genesis 2

    Contributed on Apr 11, 2019

    If I were to ask – Who’s Billy Graham? Most would say – BG was a great evangelist. And that’d be correct. But would it answer my question? No. B/c being an evangelist isn’t who BG is – it is what he used to do. If the totality of BG’s identity is found in being an evangelist, then who is he now more
