Disciples University is an interesting combination of two words.

  • Disciple: one who is willing to follow and willing to learn. We desire to become like Christ in our thinking and actions.
  • Universals: principles that form God’s view of Reality, Truth and Value.

The modern university is filled with secular professors that control the agenda. We need to rebuild our universities.

Question: “When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3

Answer: “Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of the streets in which to dwell. Isaiah 58:12

This passage outlines a discipleship strategy:

  • Rebuild with a discipleship plan. We use the CPR 12 Steps. (Sails) 
  • Raise up the proper foundations starting at the beginning.  (Genesis)
  • Repair things that were destroyed by “the notion that you can live your life without God.” (Secularism) 
  • Restore a framework of Reality, Truth and Value, which are the three divisions of knowledge. (Worldview) 

We use a picture of a Discipleship as an outline for the discipleship process.

We use a metaphor:  Discipleship is like sailing with a master who controls the winds and waves of life.  

  • Sailing with one who reveals answers about our origin and our destiny. And one who gives us meaning and a moral basis for our lives.
  • Sailing with one who knows the Way
  • Sailing with one who provides knowledge: the things we need to know and teach.
  • Sailing with one who keeps us safe in all the storms of life.

NEXT: Sail 2 – A look at some of those who paved the way for this Discipleship Plan.

My name is David Ewald. I have been a youth pastor, school administrator, missionary and a common laborer.  God has faithfully given me many friends who have encouraged me to piece this discipleship plan together.

In the following video we talk about leaders in the last few decades who have Rebuilt, Raised up, Repaired, and Restored God’s truth in our culture.  

  • Teachers who taught what the Bible says about end times.
  • Scientists who replaced Darwinism as a faulty basis for a worldview.
  • Street Workers who set up Crisis Centers, Adoption groups, etc. 
  • Spokemen for the Creation movement. Men like Whitcomb, Gish, Morris and Ham.
  • Spokemen for the Worldview movement: Men like Francis Schaeffer and David Noebel.  
  • Leaders in Disciples University ministries who pointed to discipleship rooted in Worldview, Apologetics and Genesis.

Please watch the brief overview that highlights leaders who paved the way for us.  

Next – Sail 3 – Our challenge. 

We invite leaders to join a network of people committed to spending a lifetime making disciples. “The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD”. Proverbs 16:1

Christainity as a system of truth is Coherent, Comprehensive, Compelling and Compassionate. It is led by people who have Courage, Character, Conviction and Competence.

Our Challenge involves leaders who can pass a three-fold test.

Test 1  – We are looking for those who want to be like an Issachar’s or a Noble Women. 

  • Issachar’s – describes the tribe as men who “had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”. 1 Chronicles 12:32   We are looking for Men who Understand Our Times and are willing to form a group of 12 who can use CPR 12 Steps effectively.
  • Noble Women – “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her the product of her hands, And let her works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31  We are looking for women who are leaders. Some may be married to an Issachar. Some are not. 

Test 2 – We are looking for those who can lead others to use the CPR 12 Step process.

Test 3 – We are looking for those who understand and can explain the importance of the following eight topics: 

The Wind – The Power we cannot do without
The Captain – The Power we cannot do without
The Rudder – The Power we cannot do without
Inerrancy in The Original Autographs = The Final Authority of Scriptures
The Sufficiency of Scriptures
Hermeneutics: Principles of Biblical Interpretation with a Theological Framework
Exegesis not Eisegesis
A Good Translation of the Bible combined with a Good Study Bible.

Jefferson – What they fail to teach our children about him?

Most children learn that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and that he owned slaves. But they never read what he wrote regarding the contest between the master and the slave. In his book: Notes on The State of Virginia he wrote:  “The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest.”

  • Thomas Jefferson made the motion that slavery be eternally forbidden in the very large Northwest Territory, which was given to the federal government by the State of Virginia.
  • Thomas Jefferson was the prime agent in founding the first republic in the history of the world dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
  • Thomas Jefferson did much in his day to ensure that the evil of slavery would fade from our American culture.


Orwell’s 1984 – classic novel on Totalitarian Government

Winston Smith works for the state, and his job is to rewrite history. He comes to see that he knows nothing of the past, of real history: “Every record has been destroyed or falsifed”, he says, “every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed…. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

Today, The 1619 Project promotes the teaching that slavery, not freedom, is the defining fact of American history. A total re-write of history.

America is freedom…freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It’s fragile; it needs protection.     (Thoughts from Imprimis by Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College)

Whatever we measure we have more of.

The Flag flying at the back of the Discipleship is a reminder to track you progress.
