“Disciple”–Noun or Verb?

How a Simple Definition Could Change the Trajectory of the U.S. Church

The January 2018 Campolo Fellows are Niki and Kelly Tshibaka, accomplished attorneys who first encountered Tony at Harvard Law School.  They are co-founders and co-pastors of The Lighthouse Fellowship, a Foursquare church serving the DC-Metro area. 

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Thursday, January 18th: 6-9 PM (Private)
Campolo Fellows Dinner and Conversation with the Campolo Scholars and special guests. During this informal gathering, we invite the Campolo Fellow to share their personal story (how and when did they discern their calling, what and who influenced and affirmed it, what are the unique challenges they face in ministry today, etc) and to speak pastorally in to the lives of these students who are looking for examples of people in the world doing the holistic work of the Gospel.

Friday, November 10th: 10-11 AM (Open to the Public)
Eastern University, McInnis Auditorium
Windows on the Word Lecture: “‘Disciple’”–Noun or Verb?: How a Simple Definition Could Change the Trajectory of the U.S. Church

Believers agree we are to “go make disciples,” but few people seem to know how to do it. Denominations report alarming and sustained declines in churches, members, and ministry leaders, indicating the U.S. has become a post-Christian, secular nation. How do we change that? Disciple-making. Drawing on more than 11 years’ experience in effectively making disciples, Kelly and Niki Tshibaka, pastors, church planters, and professionals in the Washington, DC area, share practical lessons they’ve learned in how to make disciples.

Friday, January 19th: 11:30 AM – 12:45 PM (Open to Public)
Eastern University, Baird Library, Walton Hall
Luncheon and Q & A with Niki and Kelly Tshibaka.  Lunch available for $5

The Campolo Fellows Speaker Series is sponsored by the Campolo Center for Ministry in collaboration with Eastern University. Each semester we invite faith- and thought-leaders who are inspired by and share Tony’s vision for faith, reason and justice, to engage with the Eastern community and mentor the Campolo Scholars. These practitioners of the Christian faith encourage the Campolo Scholars to use their gifts and training for the benefit of God’s Kingdom.
