#074: Discipleship Through Scripture with Joel Lusz

Discipleship Through Scripture with Joel Lusz

This month on the M2P podcast, the team interviews Youth Pastor and author of the 12-Month Student Discipleship Journal, Joel Lusz. Joel holds a B.A. from Taylor University, an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. But more impressive than any of the degrees is the fact that Joel is a 40-year youth ministry veteran who is still serving in full-time ministry! This longevity is fueled by Joel’s passion to equip kids and students to grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with God. That’s why your M2P team wanted to get Joel the mic to share his thoughts on the importance of encouraging our kids and teenagers to spend dedicated time each day in God’s Word, equipping them with practical tools they can use to step into a life of consistent discipleship, and creative ways to help them build habits of reading, reflection, and prayer. Joel also shares with us some thoughts on how we can help families move beyond “checklist Christianity,” where they simply go through the motions of faith and live a life where Christ truly dwells in them. Finally, Joel will give us some great insight into what is happening with teens today and encourages us to help them overcome the distractions of life and learn how to follow Jesus truly. This is an episode that you will not want to miss!
