Episode 15 | The Best Six Weeks

April 17, 2017 • Aaron Vickroy

Time is of the essence. Now that we're back from spring break, we are in the home stretch of this school year at UGA. You may be thinking a lot about what you're next step is going to be after the semester is finished; you may have some decisions to make very soon. But how will you choose to spend the next six weeks? Aaron and Chappell dive right in and explain how you can have the best six weeks of discipleship of the year right now.

Episode 14 | Sex & Marriage

April 10, 2017 • Bob Beckwith & Jessica Longino

This week we have special guests Bob Beckwith and Jessica Longino to share their wisdom on sex and marriage. This could be one of the hardest conversations to talk through with people that you disciple, especially college students. How do you answer the question of how far is too far with physical intimacy? What does it mean to pursue purity in a relationship? How do we talk about sex without creating a stigma against it? This is a must-listen for anyone diving into those topics.

Episode 13 | Disagreeing with Bob

March 20, 2017 • Aaron Vickroy

Here's a shocker: some of your students might not like everything Bob Beckwith has to say on a Wednesday night. This is normal (if you don't believe us, ask Bob himself about his inbox). When disagreement happens, though, it's an opportunity to dig deeper into truth. How do you value individualization and still encourage others to buy into the vision of our leaders? What do you do when opinions clash?

Episode 12 | Covenant Issues

February 20, 2017 • Aaron Vickroy

As part of a Truth and Accountability double feature, Aaron talks about drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll. Okay, not really. What he will be discussing, though, is issues student leaders might have with Wesley's covenant. How do you approach these rules with accountability and compassion? How do we call each other to integrity without shaming? Hear Vickroy break it down.

Episode 10 | Failure to Launch

January 16, 2017 • Aaron Vickroy

Episode 9 | Perseverance

December 5, 2016 • Aaron Vickroy

Episode 8 | Using Your Influence

November 21, 2016 • Aaron Vickroy

Discipleship intern Cassidy Gaillard talks about influence with Aaron in this week's episode. Influence may be one of those buzzwords you hear often in ministry, but do you ever think of how the things you say and do can affect others? Have you ever thought about how those things could shift the actions of the people around you? If you're in a mentoring relationship with anyone in your life, then you don't want to miss out on this episode.
