“We’re training our people in comprehensive discipleship not just generic Christian living.”
“The Kingdom agenda is the visible demonstration of the comprehensive rule of God over every area of life.”
“We keep the kingdom concept in front of people from the moment they become members.”
“You’re operating in the Kingdom of God when God’s view consistently controls your decisions.”
“The problem with families today is that they aren’t under kingdom rule they’re under cultural rule.”
“In the community, if you were accused of being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you or would you be acquitted on all charges?”
“There needs to be consistency between what you’re learning, what you’re living, and what you’re transferring.”
“Ask your self ‘what did I do to today that is outside the will of God?’”
“A lot of things boil down to either choosing to do them or not. There is no silver bullet.”
“We tried to engage what was of interest to our children rather than just get them to engage what was of interest to us.”
“Information without execution with execution and engagement just goes by the wayside.”

We’d like to thank our sponsor, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. SEBTS is always asking the question, “Where are you going?” They want to equip pastors, missionaries, theologians, scholars and more to obey the commands of Jesus to make disciples anywhere and everywhere God calls them to go. Wherever students are going, Southeastern can help them get there. Southeastern Seminary has a wide range of degrees at many levels and all M.Div. programs now have a stronger core curriculum to better equip students biblically, theologically and practically for their current and future ministries. In addition to a stronger core, the total number of hours required to complete an M.Div. has been reduced to 81-84. They even offer distance education options for those who cannot relocate to North Carolina to study.
