Join Ben and the podcast crew as they talk with Mike Taylor, Executive Director of UK-USA Ministries, about how to challenge a generation to make disciples and spread the Gospel.
If we do not call a generation into a deeper place and a more sacrificial life then we will never see the culture move and shift and that is what disciple-making is all about.
What we are called to do is be with people who don’t know Jesus. Discipleship and evangelism happen simultaneously in a post christian world.

He and his wife, Kookie have been married for 37 years and they have four children and a son-in-law. Mike and Kookie have served in Stockton-on-Tees in the United Kingdom since 2011.
