At Wallace, we’ve adopted this statement as our approach to being intentional to discipleship…and I love it. Often times, we offer a HUGE selection of classes for people to choose from, but to what end? Is it discipleship in order to say we “do discipleship,” or is it an opportunity for people to jump on board and be encouraged as they travel on this journey towards Jesus.
Intentionality is key! There has to be a purpose for what we are doing. For far too long we have simply been “doing,” but we haven’t been going anywhere, and we haven’t been helping people go with us. With our new Map Not a Menu structure, our goal is to provide a way for people to walk together with a purpose of growing and helping others grow. If we continue to do what we’ve been doing, we will continue to spin the wheels of our stationary bike.
Hopefully, starting this fall, Wallace will be offering opportunities to GO and GROW with an end in mind! I’m looking forward to what God has in store!
