Part 4 of an interview with Elmbrook Church’s former Senior Pastor and current Minister-at-Large, Stuart Briscoe, in which he shares thoughts on his memoir, “Flowing Streams.” From his current status and ministry of supporting under-resourced churches and missionaries from around the world, Stuart shares what he’s learned from his journey and his viewpoint on the current state of the global Church.
Stuart discusses, in this segment of the interview, the need to not only get people into a church, but to make disciples. The disciple-making process began with Christ, who already had the end of the age in mind. We should forget about the word “Christian,” says Briscoe, and ask people, “would you call yourself a disciple of Jesus?”
