podcast May 28, 2024

Effective discipleship methods within the church have rapidly declined and the consequences are far-reaching. We learn more about this culture crisis in today’s Church and how Catalyst Bible College aims to pick up the slack from Dr. Mark Merrill on today’s episode of the AVAIL podcast. Dr. Merrill discusses the leadership deficit prevalent in the Church today, how inadequate discipleship has discouraged people from answering the call of God on their lives, and what we, as leaders, can do about it!
