Disciple Like It Matters: Doug Swett’s story

“Discipleship is having someone you trust teach you how to apply God’s Word in your life and how to teach someone else to do the same. At least that’s how the Bible defines discipleship in 2 Timothy 2:2, “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” That is exactly how Steven Holley discipled me. We walked through life together, and in each situation I faced, he taught me how to apply God’s Word. This made such a difference in helping me grow closer to God while becoming a better husband, father, and friend. But it didn’t stop there. He pushed me to find others to teach what God had been teaching me, and I am now pushing those men to find others to teach. True biblical discipleship calls us to be multi-generational. This is why one of Bellevue’s measures encourages us to multiply disciple makers–to Disciple Like It Matters.”
