Discipleship and Mission in a Rural Context

Jesus’ call and command to ‘go and make disciples’ means everywhere and is for everyone. If you are living under the false belief that, “This missional lifestyle just won’t work in our context,” this episode is for you! (Regardless of where you live.)

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we look at discipleship and mission in a rural context. Our guest, Drew Speroni, along with his wife Sabrina and their kids, have engaged in some pretty unique rhythms as a family to see people come to know Jesus and create a missional community in their setting.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why a rural context presents unique challenges for discipleship.
  • Drew’s miraculous healing that led to clarity for his mission.
  • The daily and weekly rhythms that were engaged to build a community.
  • How this missional community is making disciples in a rural setting today.

From this episode:

“Don’t get sucked into trying to copy what others are doing to make disciples in their context. Ask the Spirit of the living God to show you the rhythms of your life, and those around you, that are perfectly suited for discipleship in community. Use the examples you heard today to spur creativity and new possibilities within your heart and mind. And always remember, you’re not in this alone–Jesus has promised to do this with you!”
