Last night I lead a discussion with our ministry team leaders at BCC. We looked at what it means to have clarity in our process of making disciples. We talked about the need for people to know exactly what they are getting into and what we expect of them. It’s funny, none of us would buy a car or a house without doing due diligence, but often times in churches we expect people to just buy into ideas like “You need to accept Christ” or “We need people to serve in X” and never clarify what it is that we are exactly asking of them.
I recently talked to a student about their decision to follow Christ, when I asked them if they understood what they were committing to, they said not really. I explained it and afterward they were like, “that makes a lot of sense”. We need to bring clarity into our process because people matter!
