How were these resources developed?
I have been discipling people and developing ministry leaders for over thirty years. Life-transforming Bible study has been at the center of my ministry, and I’m passionate about developing and equipping people as excellent Bible teachers. For seven years I co-led a national task force and steering committee for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on discipleship. I currently serve as Ministry Coordinator for Theological Formation for the Greater Los Angeles region of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.
From these experiences of working with hundreds of leaders I have developed articles and tools which you will find here on this website to help your ministry. Together with these leaders, I’ve seen thousands of college students and faculty grow in their faith and character to be remarkable people who make a significant impact in the world around them.
On this website, you will find articles that address practical and theological questions these students, faculty, and ministry leaders have asked. These have come of the crucible of real life experiences. They have helped me and many others, and so I want to share them with you.
I want to help you learn how to be an apprentice of Jesus. I want your faith in Jesus to grow so that you experience him at work in you and through you daily. I want to help you grow into the person God created you to be, by the power of the Holy Spirit. You can become someone whose character helps rather than hinders you in a flourishing life that blesses people around you. Through becoming more like Jesus, you can become someone who makes this world a better place.
