Quantity or Quality?

Below is a discussion between three pastors concerning the tension between evangelism vs. discipleship efforts.  Notice the encouragement from Matt Chandler for the older to invest into the younger.  This is such a critical need for spiritual growth to occur in BOTH parties, both the young and the old.  Also, Mark Dever points out that in order for us to consider ourselves a follower of Christ, we really should be helping others to follow Christ.  He also reminds me of the importance of praying for and encouraging others. 

  • Mark Dever is pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist church located in Washington D.C. and founder of 9Marks ministries
  • Matt Chandler is pastor of the Village church located just outside of Dallas, TX
  • James McDonald is pastor of the Harvest Bible Chapel located in Chicago and host of the Walk in the Word radio program
