"I believe the most frustrating thing about our discipleship pathway before, is the fact that there didn't seem to be a clear delineation of how to get on the path, and what markers were there to move a person forward on the pathway."
"In other words, how can one know WHERE you are, and HOW to grow?"
"So whatever we can do to actually grow and help people to know who they are in Christ, and what their next level in growing in Christ looks like, whatever stage they need to go to, is empowering for folks."
"I wouldn't be so passionate about it if I didn't feel like it works to grow and mature disciples the way Christ wants."
To God's glory that people understand "this is how I grow".
And that's powerful. If you can hand people that, that's what they need.
