Vision, Mission, & Ministry Philosophy

 

Vision

To see all Christian parents, and especially fathers, take an active participatory role in the discipleship process of their children that is marked by a lifestyle of instruction in the fear and knowledge of the Lord.

Mission

Daddy Discipleship exists to provide practical parenting skills which point children towards Christ through biblically grounded and theologically sound teaching. Daddy Discipleship will strive to connect with fathers for the sole purpose of fathers connecting their children to Christ.

Ministry Philosophy

The ministry philosophy of Daddy Discipleship is summed up with the following value statements:

  • The starting point of this ministry is God. As Daddy Discipleship seeks to stay as insignificant as possible, we desire to bring glory and renown to God’s name through the service to which He has assigned us. (1 Peter 4:11; 2 Corinthians 3:4-5; Philippians 2:1-11)
  •  

  • As the holy, inerrant, final Word of God, the Bible will be our guide, textbook, and friend. We will ask God for wisdom who gives generously to all without reproach. Within the pages of the Bible we will find guidance, direction, and comfort. We will study the Word of God intentionally as we seek His face. (John 17:17; Colossians 3:16-17; James 1:5-6)
  •  

  • We will emulate the ministry of the Messiah, Jesus. Jesus came to earth and ministered to people. The focus of this ministry will be people. In our efforts to minister to people, we will learn from, and prayerfully reflect, the ministry which Jesus Christ had while He was on earth. (Romans 1:9-12; 15:15-16)
  •  

  • The culminating goal of this ministry is to multiply Christian parents who are living and abiding in the Word of God through daily quiet times and a heart of continuous prayer. We cannot do this alone. In order to achieve multi-generational faithfulness, the family will need to realign themselves under the commands of Scripture. Husbands will need to love their wives (Ephesians 5:25). Wives will need to submit to their husbands as unto the Lord (Colossians 3:18). And children must be taught godly obedience through the training and instruction of the Lord with the father at the helm (Deuteronomy 6:1-9; Ephesians 6:1-4).

1. I will emulate the ministry of the Messiah, Jesus. Jesus came to earth and ministered to people. He met people where they were and showed them the love of His Father. The focus of my ministry will be people. I will use the wisdom and knowledge gleaned from the pages of Scripture to minister to people. In my efforts to minister to people, I will learn from, and prayerfully reflect, the ministry which Jesus Christ had while He was on earth. (Romans 1:9-12; 15:15-16)
