This podcast was recorded during a breakout session at the 2018 Baptist State Convention of North Carolina Annual Meeting and focuses on cultural awareness in discipleship. When shepherding young believers from different races and cultures, it is important to ask the question, “How can I lead this person to become more like Christ without causing them to jettison their culture?” Walter Strickland of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary explores how to pass along the “faith once for all delivered to the saints” to those who are called to walk in faithfulness in different cultures.

Here is a summary of what is covered in this podcast:

A lot of churches have been recently captured by the vision of every tribe, tongue and nation being represented in their churches because that is who is going to be in the kingdom. While we want that to be the picture in our churches, we must do things in the rudimentary elements of what it means to do church and in ministering to others with a kingdom vision of Revelation 7 in mind. Discipleship is one of those fundamental things we do that has to be aware of the cultural dynamics that come into play. In this podcast, Strickland explores why cultural awareness in discipleship is important, how do we do it, the effects of doing it, the effects of not doing it and more.

What makes Good Friday good?
