Discipleship Podcast | Season One
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
The DL Podcast welcomes you back in 2017 with this topic: how do you start off mentoring and discipling well coming off of a long winter break? Aaron is joined by Chappell Claxton in discussing how to avoid the pitfalls of a slow start and how to use the first meetings well.
Episode 9 | Perseverance
December 5, 2016 • Aaron Vickroy
Have you ever heard someone define insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? This week's episode challenges that idea as Aaron talks about finding progress when perseverance seems to get us no where in our personal struggles.
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.
Episode 6 | Pumpkin Spice Lattee
October 24, 2016 • Aaron Vickroy
Chappell Claxton, an intern at the UGA Wesley Foundation, joins Aaron this week to share some good tips for the month of October. As they join forces, they will talk about how to approach missed meetings, school, and also the secret ingredient to in-depth, real-life talk: you guessed it, the pumpkin spice latte.
Episode 5 | Ownership
October 10, 2016 • Aaron Vickroy
In this week's episode, Aaron goes over the concept of ownership in a mentoring relationship. He'll go over what kinds of things you can take ownership of, how much is healthy and how to be responsible in that setting. Also, Aaron gives us some useful anecdotes about gardening as bonus material.
