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!
Today will be the first of a two-part conversation about Discipleship with Dr. Robert Carpenter. I became connected to Dr. Carpenter through my studies at Regent University as he was one of my Seminary Professors in a Biblical Discipleship course over the summer. Dr. Carpenter, therefore, teaches about our call as Christians to “go out and make disciples.” He will exhort and encourage us with biblical truth! Dr. Carpenter shares his powerful testimony with us and about key people in his life who disciple him to grow into the man of God that he is today. Some questions we will cover are: What is discipleship? Why should discipleship be important to us as Christians? And What are some practical ways that we can cultivate a life of being and making disciples?
