First-hand accounts from the Missional Discipleship Initiative

“The Missional Discipleship Initiative has helped me to focus on my purpose and mission as a Christian instead of being busy and not accomplishing the ultimate goal … I realized that many people have a lot of questions and barely anyone is available to listen or share [with them].  “What I appreciate about the Initiative is the challenge to be a better disciple, to engage with others … and to live a practical life influencing others.”
—Daniel Guillet, Youth Pastor, Unity Pentecostal Church of God Mennonite, Miami, Florida

“La Iniciativa de Discipulado Misional me ha ayudado a enfocar cual es mi propósito y misión como Cristiano, en vez de nada más estar ocupado sin alcanzar la meta final… Me doy cuenta que las personas tienen muchas preguntas; y sin embargo, casi nadie está disponible para escucharles o para compartir [con ellas]. Lo que valoro de la Iniciativa es el desafío a ser un mejor discípulo, de involucrarme con los demás…y de llevar una vida que influya en otros”.
—Daniel Guillet, Pastor de Jóvenes, Unity Pentecostal Church of God Mennonite, Miami, Florida



"I found the virtual huddle to be a very positive experience. It allowed me to have an ongoing experience with people in three different states. It forced me to read a book and consider material and ideas that I wouldn’t have picked up on my own.I highly recommend huddles!"
—Joetta Schlabach, Pastor of Worship, Pastoral Care, and Administration at Faith Mennonite Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota

"He encontrado que el Círculo de Aprendizaje Virtual ha sido una experiencia muy positiva. Me ha permitido tener una relación sostenida con otros líderes en tres diferentes estados. Me forzó a leer un libro y a considerar materiales e ideas que probablemente no hubiera buscado por mi propia cuenta. Yo recomiendo altamente la participación en un Círculo de Aprendizaje!"
—Joetta Schlabach, Pastor of Worship, Pastoral Care, and Administration at Faith Mennonite Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota



“The Missional Discipleship Initiative has been a great blessing in my ministry as a pastor. As a result of my work with MDI, we have been able to strengthen the faith of several members of our congregation. Some of them have taken a stronger commitment in their personal relationship with God. Others are deciding to be baptized while committing themselves to using their lives, skills and talents to the service of God. Still others are renewing their personal and family relationships. Thanks to MDI, we have the opportunity to strengthen the pillars and foundations of the church of Jesus Christ today.”
—Pastor Ulises Arenas, Iglesia Buenas Nuevas, San Juan, Texas

“La Iniciativa de Discipulado Misional ha sido de gran bendición en mi ministerio como pastor. Como resultado de mi trabajo con IDM, se ha logrado consolidar la fe de varios miembros de nuestra congregación. Algunos de ellos han tomado un compromiso más fuerte en su relación personal con Dios. Otros están decidiendo bautizarse y poner al servicio de Dios sus vidas, habilidades y talentos. Aún otros más están renovando sus relaciones personales y familiares. Gracias a IDM tenemos la oportunidad de fortalecer los pilares y fundamentos de la iglesia de Jesucristo de hoy.”
—Pastor Ulises Arenas, Iglesia Buenas Nuevas, San Juan, Texas.
