Dr. Jason Bybee Research Spotlight

A Mentoring Model for Intentional Disciple-Making: with Dr. Jason Bybee

For this Research Spotlight, I had a rich conversation with Dr. Jason Bybee about discipleship. Discipleship is so much more than making converts. Through Scripture and Story, we can make a meaningful impact on each other’s lives. Jason talks about programs his congregation has implemented, inspired by Paul’s own model for discipling Timothy. If you aren’t sure where to start, Jason is a helpful guide.

Conversation Highlights:

  • Misconceptions about “discipleship”
  • Stoic influences on Paul’s development of his discipleship model, particularly from Epictetus
  • The importance of both Scripture and Story in discipleship
  • Creating sacred spaces where people can provide deliberate companionship in the journey of discipleship
  • The roles of Myth and Parable in how stories shape us
  • Maintaining a congregational culture of discipleship
