John’s April Review: A Storm Can’t Stop Disciple-Making!

May 01 2023 John’s April Review: A Storm Can’t Stop Disciple-Making!

During the Disciple-Making Summit at Dallas Seminary in fall of 2021, we had the opportunity to connect with a man named Greg Ray who had driven down from Blanchard, Oklahoma. Over the past year and a half, I’ve been able to watch Greg lead a group of 9 people through The Four Priorities. On their last night, a horrible storm blew in almost keeping them from being able to graduate, but they prevailed!

Even in the midst of a storm like this, those who could safely attend decided it was worth it to meet together to be equipped as disciple-makers!

Greg told us, “We lost power right before we started. Severe weather all around. We had one that could not make it in. They appreciated the video you sent; had to show it on my phone, because we lost power…This passed over town while we were meeting. Had to go to the storm shelter once!”

The picture below is of Greg’s disciple-makers after receiving the baton. They are ready to run their race and continue to make disciples who make disciples!

While we often talk about discipling in a one-on-one setting, The Four Priorities is also a great option for any group bible study! Keep your eyes peeled for a new resource coming from us soon to help you deepen your study of The Four Priorities individually, with your family, or with a group!
