It has been a joy to talk with Caroline Saunders about discipleship! In this episode, we will discuss Jesus’ perfect example of discipleship and how He based it on three vital aspects. Of note, Caroline exhorts, “Discipleship is up-close ministry. In those up-close places, that is where change really happens.” If you need a practical kick to go out and make disciples, stay tuned to the gems that Caroline gives us in this chat.
Welcome to the second part of our conversation about the value of discipleship with Dr. Robert Carpenter. In case you missed the first episode, which I encourage you to go and listen to, Dr. Carpenter is talking with us all the way from East Africa- as he is currently on active duty as the Director of Religious Affairs for the Combined Joint Task Force- Horn of Africa located in Djibouti, which is just north of the Somalia border in East Africa. I had the privilege this summer to be taught by him through Regent University in my Seminary studies. Dr. Carpenter shares his powerful testimony with us in the first episode, and we continue to reflect on how great God is to equip those that He calls. We will also discuss more about how discipleship was vital in Dr. Carpenter’s obedience to follow God’s call on his life. If you haven’t noticed already, Dr. Carpenter has the gift of exhortation and encouragement. I’m praying that you will feel encouraged by our conversation today!
