Home - Resilient Disciples

"Many of us live our lives with the perpetual question, "Lord, what do you want me to do, what is my mission?" The common mistake is that we seek the answer to this question before we start walking the path of obedience. This is exemplified by nearly 50% of churchgoers who attend services a couple of times a month, throw something in the offering that is below 2 percent of their income, and hope to hear something that will get them through the week. They don't see themselves as disciples, learners, or followers of Jesus. They believe self-denial is for monks, missionaries, and ministers. They go through life being Christian without being Christlike. They never pick up their cross because they never submit themselves to true discipleship. In fairness to them, sad to say, often no one has taught them what following Jesus really means."
Bill Hull

Let’s raise up the greatest generation of disciples. Join the conversation at the Child Discipleship Forum.

Home - Resilient Disciples Amid times of change, chaos, and an uncertain future, we believe the church needs to refocus on relational, scriptural, and experiential child discipleship.

So important!

Please, bring your babies to church!
It doesn't matter if they fall asleep on the pews.
It doesn't matter if they take off the little tie or hair bow.
It doesn't matter if they whisper or cry during church.
It doesn't matter if people give you dirty looks.

Church offers stability.
Church makes them feel safe.
Church is a place they hear the Gospel!
So, please, bring your babies to church! We love them!

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 KJV
