Why should we be concerned with discipleship within our homes? Because it doesn’t end there. As Mike Farris and his guest, Rev. Henry Reyenga, explore today on Home School Heartbeat, home discipleship reaches far beyond our front door.
I began this week mentioning my belief that homeschooling offers a unique way for Christians to fulfill the Great Commission. Henry, I know that your goal for families catching the vision for home discipleship doesn’t end in the home. Your goal is reproducible Christianity. Tell us about that.
Rev. Henry Reyenga:
Thanks, Mike. In 2002, I left the Bible League to begin Christian Leaders. Christian Leaders is a non-profit dedicated to encouraging churches to practice home discipleship. Christian homeschooling families are making up the core of these churches. Children sit with their families in church; families recite the Scripture they have memorized in their home. Our motto: if the home wins, the church wins! One interesting fruit—we have seen many courtships and marriages in this process. Our goal is to plant or encourage home discipleship churches all over this country and the world. We desire to work with pastors who want to plant a home discipleship church or encourage pastors in their home discipleship church. We aspire to train home discipleship pastors and leaders—we started an online training institute called Christian Leaders Institute (contact us for a free handbook). Our goal is to see home discipleship Christianity and culture spread everywhere.
Henry, thank you so much for your encouraging work. I’m Mike Farris.
