Years ago, we were doing some strategic planning at the church I had founded in Queens, NY. We were reflecting on what contributed to our growth over a 26 year period.
A single word kept reappearing on the whiteboard - "BASEMENT"
How did we disciple so many quality leaders, many of whom are still leading today?
Hint: it wasn't what happened on the stage. It was what happened in the basement.
Matthew 28 tells us to "make disciples of all nations". But many leaders today feel a pressure to make their discipleship strategies big and public rather than small and hidden.
Jesus modeled a different way of making disciples. In fact, he flipped the entire thing upside down. In today's podcast, I share with you why real discipleship starts in the basement.
Over 25 years ago, I found myself in a crisis. I was a successful pastor with growing leadership influence, but my inner life with God was nearly non-existent. I almost lost everything.
Since then, my wife Geri and I have given ourselves to equipping leaders and churches to move from a shallow Christianity to real depth in Christ.
