We are excited to share about some exciting resources to help Christians grow this year!
Many disciples in our worldwide fellowship regularly write blogs that encourage, motivate, or chronicle their experiences and lessons learned as they walk with Christ. Some even take on the current issues or taboo topics that challenge our thinking and paradigms. We would like to introduce you to two of those persons, who have graciously consented to us sharing about their blogs here on Disciples Today.
Jon Sherwood and his wife Brittany both serve in the full-time ministry in the Columbia, South Carolina church. They entered the ministry as singles in 2006, and have been married since 2011. They have one son.
As a minister, Jon shares that he has a desire to “help people grow, fuel, and invigorate their faith, while experiencing a life full of joy and peace in Jesus Christ.” He writes that the purpose of his site is to ignite and fuel faith in Jesus Christ, by focusing on Bible study, leadership, sexuality and how modern culture intersects with the Christian faith. He sometimes uses a video-blog interview format, exploring topics that challenge our thinking! Here are some of the more recent ones:
- The “T” in LGBT - An Interview with Brandon Redler
- Should Christians Attend Gay Weddings?
- Dating vs. Courtship: Is One More Biblical Than The Other?
- The Resurrection of Discipleship - An Interview with Bill Hull
