In the first episode of "Grace Church Members" podcast, Chris Rivers and Scott Mozingo discuss the purpose of the podcast and give listeners an idea of what to expect. They address how we are often clear on the “what” behind the mission we are trying to accomplish and the "how" behind achieving our ministry objectives, but forget the "why" behind the ministry we do. They explore how understanding the “why” gives us confidence in what we are doing and allows us to communicate and draw others into the mission. It also challenges us to move beyond the goal of self-improvement and pursue transformational life change. As they address different topics during each episode, they will seek to answer two questions: 1) Why is this a discipleship issue? 2) How does it help me grow in my devotion to God and others?
