In this episode we learn from pastor, speaker, author and disciple maker, Greg Ogden. We know him as the author of Discipleship Essentials and he is our guest speaker at our 2020 annual 4:19 Disciple Makers conference. Today, Greg teaches us the difference between a Christian and a Disciple.
Greg Ogden is “retired” or better yet “redeployed” (as of March 2012) from professional church leadership. He now lives out his passion for speaking, teaching, and writing about the disciple-making mission of the church.
He is the author of six books: Unfinished Business: Returning the Ministry to the People of God (Zondervan, 2003), Discipleship Essentials: A Guide to Building Your Life in Christ: Expanded and Revised (InterVarsity Press, 2019), Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time (Intervarsity Press, 2016); with co-author, Daniel Meyer, Leadership Essentials: Shaping Vision, Multiplying Influence, Defining Character (InterVarsity Press, 2007), The Essential Commandment: A Guide to Loving God and Others (InterVarsity Press, 2011), and lastly, Essential Guide to Becoming a Disciple (November 2016).
Dr. Ogden is a chairman of the board of Global Discipleship Initiative (GDI). GDI trains, coaches, and inspires pastors and Christian leaders to establish indigenous, multiplying, disciple-making movements, both nationally and internationally. (globaldi.org)
