An Invitation to go Deeper
At a recent national leadership summit, the cry for “deeper discipleship more than leadership” was evident among younger leaders. Where are the mature credible characters that are worth following? The spiritual fathering and mothering of younger leaders was a repeated request from Gen X and Y.
Got me thinking about what I would do? Anyone else want to go deeper with me? Let me invite you to join others in a deeper discipleship.

Discipleship includes a growing spiritual companionship with Christ. A companionship of knowing, being and doing.
Spiritual disciplines of:
Lectio divina=spiritual reading, meditating and applying.
Life accountabilities… Challenging character questions from each other.
Prayer disciplines… hearing the voice of God, conversational, solitude, retreats, silence, walks, journaling.
Power evangelism… prophetic promptings, spiritual gifts, healing prayer, deliverance and warfare.
Mentoring, coaching and spiritual parenting… investing upstream, downstream.
How deep do your foundations go?
(Luke 6:48 NIV) He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.
Join a deeper discipleship. Are you ready to dig? Push out into the blue water?
