On this edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE, we carry on with our discipleship series. Imagine that we were trapped on a deserted island and had never even heard of Christianity, and suddenly a bible washed ashore. Excited, we picked it up and read it from cover to cover. Years passed and we developed our island church culture simply based on what we read. How different would this island culture look from our current church culture?
It is our prayer that you be Spirit-filled and blessed by what you will discover on this unique edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE.
During these two hours, we will learn how God’s perfect love and faithfulness can help us walk hand-in-hand with God—leading us through this life into a life of total victory, in all things, through His anointing, discernment, and great comfort.
Special Guests: Jason Wiser, Associate Missionary with Church of God Wold Missions
We round out our program with features including Joyce Meyer’s “Everyday Moments”, Focus on the family’s Plugged-In Movie Review and Focus on the Family Minute, Beth Moore’s “A Quick Word”, Luis Palau’s “Reaching Your World”, and Dave Ramsey’s “Daily Money Makeover.”
On this edition of Alive in Christ, Christian Discipleship Ministries’ Founder, Tony Marino and Lynn Kennedy explore life’s guidelines verses His “God-lines”, and will it be “your way”, or “Yahweh?” We invite you to join us.
On this episode we will learn to, “let go and let God.”

Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || In-Studio Guest: Jason Wiser
Jason Wiser is an Associate Missionary with Church of God World Missions currently on assignment in Uzhgorod Ukraine working with the Roma Gypsy Community. He is the director of Michigan Bridge Ministry. He and his Valeriia and their two sons are sent out as members of Family of Faith Ministries in Charlevoix, Michigan. They are working closely alongside resident Pastor Kortchie Brugosh who is the Sr. Pastor at Radvanka Church of God where most of their ministry takes place. The ministry is focused on reaching the lost for Jesus Christ and while outreach and Humanitarian aid is a part of the ministry, it is only a tool. One of the main outreach ministries that we have is a community feeding programs for the children of the community. 3 times a week we fill the church sanctuary, (a room that is about 10’ X 24’) with an average of 60 children. We sing, learn scripture, and have a warm meal. The most valuable is the relationship building and letting these little ones know they can come and be safe, and cared for in the house of God.
Our big goal for 2013 is to purchase an onsite parsonage. The church does not have good security and the building has been broken into and we have had many things stolen. Also, the Pastor lives in an apartment building that is flooded with standing water and sewage. There is a video online that details this situation. ( http://jtw.bz/RomaPastor ) We have an opportunity to purchase a new building right next to the church that will expand the church for more children’s ministry, it will provide 24 hour on site security for the church, and it will move the pastor and his family into safe living conditions.

Title: The Discipling Church: Our Great Commission: Encouraging, Equipping, and Empowering the Body of Christ (Volume 1)
Description: The Discipling Church is a practical application “disciple-making” guide that defines and clarifies how every Christian can become a true disciple of Jesus Christ. This text was prepared primarily for church leaders, but has been written in such a way so that it may “equip” every Christian and every Christ seeker. “Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer). The Lord Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of our faith. From the truth found in God’s Word, we have purposefully embedded within the pages of this book the essential elements necessary to carry on the Great Commission of Jesus Christ – namely, to “Make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19, NIV)? We believe in the fact that the world and everything in it has been made by Him, for Him, through Him, and in Him. We take His words, His teachings, His attitudes and His commands as being that of the one true God of the universe – with nothing missing and nothing broken. Evangelism is that work of bringing people face to face with their need for and experiencing a new birth experience in Christ. Salvation, in its most narrow understanding, is a moment-in-time experience by a person of the new birth or conversion to Jesus Christ. At this point in time, the believer receives new life and is “born again” and experiences what the Bible calls, redemption, reconciliation, and justification. God immediately and suddenly brings transformation into his or her life. However, the reality of discipleship is the growth of that new life which comes after the moment of salvation. Discipleship is a lifelong process of applying the gospel and the truth of the Word of God into the believer’s life, with the ultimate objective of becoming and being Christ-like every day. As you make your way through the Table of Contents, you will quickly discover that “The Discipling Church” is divided into two practical primary sections. Section One: A practical panoramic overview relative to the fundamental precepts of what discipleship is combined with why and how we, as Christians, must go and make disciples. This section was researched, developed, and written for those who are in church leadership, those who are the church (the Body of Christ), and those who are still Christ seekers. Section Two: An inspired collection of useful and timely discipleship tools, resources, and solutions. Upon reaching the completion of this book you will be equipped and have the necessary essentials to go forward with Jesus’ Great Commission: to make disciples. All misconceptions, confusions, rationalizations, and objections will have been addressed leaving you, the reader and learner, with one all-important, eternal question: Will you obey? Prayerfully consider your answer for it has eternal ramifications.
