Mark Thayer on the business skill of disciple-making


Is your business positioned to make disciples?  Mark Thayer, who is a Field Partner with CBMC and overseas CBMC trusted advisor forums in Maryland, says it is.   Together we explore why business is a powerful platform for disciple-making and how Christian business owners are in a position to flourish in obeying the Great Commission commands of Christ.  We also talk about what it looks like for those leading business to not just disciple others but also to ensure they are being discipled.

Conversation Highlights:

-One-on-one discipleship (Christ-centered relationship building) is where life change happens for most believers.  As a result, business owners have tremendous opportunity to engage people throughout their business in meaningful discipleship relationships.

-Matthew 28:18-20: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

-Who is your Timothy?  Who is your Paul?

-What are the new challenges and opportunities that business owners have in tumultuous business environments?

-Business concerns naturally crowd out spiritual opportunities for business owners.  How do we develop the habits to keep financial or business concerns from distracting us from the call to discipleship?

-Are business owners often skilled at making disciples, but not so skilled at being discipled?
