RIAWOP's Mission

Top Priority Goals

Matthew 28:19-20 – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”

Right now, my family is my mission field
  1. Have Claire, Madalynn, and Lauren in the position to make a decision to be live Jesus Christ
  2. Train/transform them into battle ready disciples; “make disciples…not converts”
  3. See their faith evolve from a replica of my faith into a sustainable version of its own
  4. Enable them to have the freedom in decision making, while maintaining a “safety net” if/when things go wrong
Life Experiments

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 Click for full verse – I am to teach God’s Word to my girls by talking about it everywhere and anytime…discipleship is not divorced from normal life; it is the very definition of normal life

This list is comprised of a variety of goals to accomplish solo or as a family.  They are not in a particular order but as I mentioned earlier they take a lesser priority to goals 1-4.  As random as they may be, I believe that all of these goals can serve as opportunities to teach my girls God’s word through my experiences.
