E14 – John Allison – Making Disciples in a Lost paradise

There is a set of islands many people think of as paradise, but it is a LOST paradise. How do you reach 65,000 students on those islands that are 97% unreached? While most of the students have heard of Jesus, very few of them have ever heard the good news of Jesus in a way that is personal and relevant. How do you begin to plan for such a task?

John and his coworkers’ main method to accomplish this goal is…. drum roll… disciple making.  The answer is simple… but it’s not easy.  Today you can hear John share some about their challenges, successes, and methods they are using to create a disciple making priority in order to reach every student.

E13 – Why Deep Water?

Why do we call this the “Deep Water Podcast – Learning to make disciples like Jesus did?” Deep water isn’t just a place where we can’t touch bottom. It’s not the place where we have to swim, or where we are barely keeping our head above water.  No, deep water is the place where Jesus uses us to fish for men… so many that our nets begin to break.

The good news is discipleship isn’t about you.  It’s about God.  Here we’ll share some of our thoughts, stories, and experiences… good and bad.  Listen in to find some good ways to ask someone if they would like to be discipled… by you.
