I have been afforded the time to pray and seek God’s leading for my new adventure at Disciple Daily. The founding purpose to develop a worldwide network of believers who train together to make disciples of Jesus has not changed. Some of the mechanics I initially envisioned won’t work. I have discovered some other tools and resources that will. We are still in process of working through some of the details. But that is OK.
For most of my life, my identity has been wound up in who I worked for, and what I did. When people now ask me what I do, I am finding greater confidence in explaining what God is doing in and through me. It is always good when there is less of me and more of Him. Along the way, I have come to realize how important authenticity is as I tell my story. I don’t have to be anything more than who God has made me.
One of the tools I am exploring is the use of video for the training modules I envision at Disciple Daily. Over the last couple of months, several people have encouraged me to build some very well defined and pointed videos that communicate the core concepts of our faith in Yeshua. These videos must be kept short so as to maintain a viewer’s attention and also to respect the amount of time they may have available. Obviously, I can’t afford Spielberg or Lucas. Consequently, you won’t see glossy, hi-tech production values on either of the first two offerings now available.
These initial videos are available for your use, any way you desire. What comes from Disciple Daily does not belong to me. It is the Lord’s. Over time, I anticipate that I will be producing study guides to accompany the videos. Together, they should be helpful to get the ball rolling with the people around our network to create new disciple making relationships. The idea is to watch the video, investigate the Scriptures highlighted, and discuss the material together. All of this can be used as a springboard to building long-term discipling relationships with others that transcend just the transference of knowledge.
This is where you come in. While I have some ideas about the various topics and formats for these videos, I want to produce material that you will be able to use effectively. As potential participants in the Disciple Daily network, I would appreciate any thoughts you may have on the following question:
What are the things that you think are most important for new believers to grasp in the first weeks of their faith in Jesus?
Now, for your viewing pleasure, here is our second video titled “Empty Tomb.” Feel free to nominate it for an Oscar if you like it.
