On this edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE, we carry on with our discipleship series. Are we going and making disciples or are we simply making excuses for not going and making disciples? What roles should church leadership take when it comes to addressing the “cost of discipleship?” This is our teaching as we discuss, “Making Disciples or Excuses” from God’s Word and the Introduction of “The Discipling Church” text.
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 Guest: Jason Velotta (Author and Associate Pastor)
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 Velotta
Jason Velotta is currently the Associate Pastor serving at Christ Church in Brownsville, TN. Growing up in a Christian home, Jason made a profession of faith early in life. However, the fruits and conviction of the Holy Spirit were absent for much of Jason’s teenage and young adult life. Searching for fulfillment in music, Jason spent most of his young life playing the guitar in rock bands around Memphis and Jackson, TN. The lifestyle that accompanied Jason’s career choice quickly degenerated into a destructive pattern.
Jesus saved Jason in 2003 and called him to the ministry two short years later. Since then, Jason has earned master’s degrees in ministry and biblical studies from Temple Baptist Seminary and in Dec. of 2012, he will complete his MDiV. He currently resides in Tennessee with his wife Dana, and their three children, Jacob, Jesse, and Sophie.
Realizing the futility of that lifestyle, Jason left that life and returned to the church, “re-dedicating” himself to God. After years in the Church, it became clear that he had simply traded an overtly sinful lifestyle for a religious one. In 2003, the Holy Spirit convicted Jason of his sin and revealed the fact that he was just as lost on the Church pew as he had been playing in the clubs of Beale Street.

Title: Reclaiming Victory: Living in the Gospel
Description: Today, many believe the gospel is nothing more than the basics of Christianity the first of many steps toward a victorious life of joy. The gospel of Christ is believed, accepted, and then laid aside as the believer searches for the abundant life. Do you remember the joy you felt when Jesus first saved you from your sin? Before you knew it, ministry programs, self-help principles, and moral mandates drew you away from the very gospel that first captivated you. Since then you have struggled to recapture that victory for living. Far too many believers experience this loss of vitality in their spiritual lives. In fact, this decline is so common that many say a declining passion is to be expected as a Christian matures! Even worse, because of our inept view of the gospel, many non-believers disregard the Bible’s evidences of salvation, joining the millions of unfulfilled believers in a fruitless search for peace. In Reclaiming Victory: Living The Gospel, author Jason R. Velotta dispels the idea that salvation is just the doorway on the road toward victorious living. With an informative yet captivating style, Reclaiming Victory brings God’s Word to the forefront, showing that the gospel itself is the victorious Christian life! Believers will find that the life of fulfillment is waiting at Calvary, exactly where we left it. Disregard the ‘recovery’ mindset, which has led to helplessness and apathy, for the gospel is not just the door to salvation…It is the source of the victorious Christian life! Your Savior is waiting…your fulfillment has always been in Him…Victory is already yours!
