Discipling Believers Who Work in Ministry

We’ve spent this season talking about the Leadership Games and the need for discipleship in the various fields where people work. We talked with believers in government, law and security; business; arts, entertainment & media, health,medicine & wholeness, and we’re ending our series talking about the need to disciple people who work in ministry. That may sound strange because it seems like they should be the ones who have discipleship down! But many who work in the church and other parachurch organizations will tell you it doesn’t always happen there either. There’s a difference between teaching discipleship and practicing it.

Discipling Believers in Health, Medicine & Wholeness

The need to improve our physical and mental health, and the idea of wholeness — these are top of mind for so many people today. Loneliness and anxiety are epidemics, we aren’t taking care of our bodies, and people are turning to quick fixes. So it’s important to have believers serving and teaching in these fields because they have access to people during times of vulnerability and pain that only God can heal. What challenges do they face, and why is it important to use the Holy Spirit as they work?

Discipling Believers in Arts, Entertainment & Media

The fields of arts, entertainment and media have an outsized impact on our culture and society.  Content, as it’s called now, affect the way we think about and see the world. That’s why it’s so important that we need people who work in these industries to see their work as an expression of their faith. Listen to three leaders who are trying to put discipleship principles into practice in their work. What challenges do they face, and why does it matter?

Discipling Believers in Business

Business is the backbone of modern civilization.  It provides goods and services, creates jobs, and drives innovation. Of course, the goal is to make a profit but there are good ways to do business and bad ones as well. It is of great importance that we have godly people leading and running businesses — making money with integrity, treating employees and customers with honor, and being a positive impact on the communicty.  Listen to three leaders who are trying to put discipleship principles into practice in their work. What challenges do they face and why is it important to bring God into financial decisions?

Discipling Believers in Government, Law & Nation Security

There seems to be a lot of hopelessness and cynicism when it comes our institutions – the government, the legal system and law enforcement & security. That’s why it is so important to disciple believers who work in these fields to do their work according to godly principles, with humility and a heart of service. Listen to three leaders who are trying to do just that – what lessons are resonating and have been the most meaningful and the spiritual strongholds they face.

Why You Should Care About the Leadership Games

This season we’re going to tell you about Lionshare’s latest initiative – The Leadership Games. Why should you care? Because it’s an embodiment of what intentional discipleship can look like. Lionshare intentionally gathered older leaders who were interested in discipling younger leaders. They spent a year training and then came to the Leadership Games to meet young leaders who had been invited to take part and expressed a desire to have someone disciple them. They were split up by vocational field – those working in health and mental health professions; business; arts & entertainment; government, law & security; and the church. What happened and is it working?
