In The Way of Jesus: A Book Review
Missions and discipleship go hand in hand. We see the simplicity of this partnership in Jesus’ final mandate before leaving Earth—“go and make disciples.” Our workers are aiming to do just that, and we love sharing stories of the ways that God is at work through their labors. It’s incredible and humbling to watch God expand his Kingdom around the world, and to play a small part in it.
Sometimes, though, these stories can also be a little discouraging. God is raising up churches in Asia, in Africa, in the Middle East, and people are coming to faith in him in record numbers. But what about here? Sometimes it’s hard to recognize discipleship and growth in the North American church, and it raises the nagging question “where have we gone wrong—and how can we make it right again?”
Paul Kroeker is the former Canadian Regional Director for Global Disciples, and is currently working with C2C Network planting churches in Winnipeg, Manitoba and beyond. Rosedale Mennonite Missions has gotten to know Paul well throughout the years at Global Disciples equipping events, and during his visits to the Rosedale International Center to teach at the REACH discipleship training school.
