Personal Note

I am encouraged by the development of an effective plan to fulfill the mission of “Making Disciples with Biblical Mentoring”.  I am asking for your prayer and financial support as this plan continues to progress.

As you may know, many years ago I responded to a call to minister to medical students and to encourage doctors to invest their lives in advancing the Kingdom of Christ.  After ten years of work as a hospital accountant, auditor and financial analyst followed by many years in various roles with the Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CMDA), and The Navigators, we developed a new non-profit organizations now registered as Healthy Initiative Ministries (HIM) which is offered on this website at MedicalMobilizers.org.

Recently, I started offering Study Guides free of charge through the website at http://medicalmobilizers.org/study-guides.  I started with In His Image by the late award winning author – Dr. Paul Brand. The information and stories consistently point to principles from the Word of God about the amazing construction of the human body to be compared to the Body of Christ (the Church).

I was then challenged by a pastor to develop a discipleship training plan for one of his new believers so I chose to use another classic book titled Essentials of Discipleship by Francis Cosgrove who had served on staff of the Navigators and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church with Dr. D. James Kennedy.  The focus is on training disciples to disciple disciple-making disciples!  Get the point?  This is about intentional multiplication of disciples as commissioned to do in the Great Commission in Matthew 28.  My personal goal is to equip (train) as many people as possible as God leads while continuing to mentor them as they fulfill a pledge to disciple / train others in their network as God blesses.  The goal is deep spiritual growth and multiplication – not numbers.  This fulfills my personal call of being one to “encourage and equip the Saints for greater works of service” in Ephesians 4:11-13 as well as the Great Commission to “go and make disciples”.

Again, your prayers and support are needed to advance these projects of providing study guides and  offering discipleship training.   You can participate in this work through prayer and donations as you are led by the Spirit.  And you can ask to participate in the discipleship training as well as use the study guides for your own personal study or small groups.

Eventually, my prayer is that our ministry outreach and projects will be funded primarily by our SwitchandSupport.org Funding Plan.  This is also on our Other Ways to Give web page.

Thank you – In Christ,

Ron
