Launch of new website

posted on January 1, 2011 under  Blog

After completing the 1 Photo Per Day commitment for the year of 2010, I kept asking myself what I needed to be more dedicated to in 2011. The Digital Disciples network has been around for around 18 months, but I’ve been the only roadblock to what God wants to do with / through it. So here we go!

I thought about just leaving our old / lame website alone and update friends about Digital Disciples through my personal blog more frequently, but I just felt that that wasn’t a big enough commitment. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that God wants to begin a movement across the globe through this network…….so I’m dedicating myself to the network alone in 2011.

Every day I am going to let this site put the spotlight on what God is doing through another Digital Disciple that He lets me come in contact with. Initially we wanted to start our own “social network” on a small scale, but I don’t really see the point of that. I long for meeting new Digital Disciples and hearing what God is up to in their lives. If they somehow decide to either join / help create a monthly meetup in their city GREAT. But at least I can live another day in 2011 knowing that God has the freedom of speaking to us all through the lives of fellow Digital Disciples!

I’ll be sending out personal invitations to those I know are already interested in the movement / would probably want to be featured for a day here. If we haven’t met or I haven’t sent one to you yet, feel free to visit this link to submit your details to be featured. Oh yeah….be sure to join up with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Also be sure to subscribe to the blog (see right panel), since we’ll be starting to lay the foundation of the network these next few months. Our goal this week is to start listing the Daily Digital Disciple articles and to launch our weekly live chats on Thursday evenings at 9pm EST (LIVE link will be in menu above then). What do you think about this? Are you as pumped as I am?

    Gabe, It was great to chat with you the other day. It sounds like you have some awesome things going on. And YES, I am as pumped as you are. I would love to somehow be a part of whats going on here at DD. Keep up the fabulous work and let me know when the DDLIVE chats start … I can’t wait. And I would love to start a DDMeetUp here one day. Stay in touch.

  2. I love what God has already done through Digital Disciples and can’t wait to see what’s next. I commit to pray too. So exciting!

      That’s a shrewd answer to a tricky quesoitn

      our failures do not deiermtne our future with the Lord. It reminds me of a bumpber sticker I read once: Christians aren’t perfect. They’re just forgiven. Have you ever seen it? It’s so true! I love it. Non-Christians may be misled into believing that Christians should always act perfectly and like to point it out when we’re not. But you know what? Christians do the same thing to each other, and also to ourselves! We expect ourselves to be perfect, like Christ, and when we fail to be that way, we’re so hard on ourselves (I do that so many times). But as the Bible shows us, Peter denied Jesus right to His face, not once, but three times! Even the great Peter, Jesus’ actual disciple, the father’ of church! It’s like me, denying to others that my parents aren’t really my parents, right in front of them. How hurt would they be! It’s a good thing, a GREAT thing, that God is so forgiving. He allows us to new opportunities, so many fresh starts, to do better. How wonderful is He! We’re not perfect, but we’re forgiven.

      I guess Peter went a lot further than the other dsepiclis before failing (because they failed even sooner by hiding right away). I think when we are truly drawing closer in oneness with Jesus, life SHOULD get much harder and we SHOULD be facing some more persecution. If we always act according to WWJD, outsiders should find us a little weird :P . But if we are cool with just having Him be our Friend and Savior but hide when things start getting tough (like the rest of the dsepiclis), then perhaps we’re not truly in love with Him?

    Can I be the first to want to be on a “prayer commitment” for DD…?
    To pray daily for the outreach of JESUS CHRIST through this ministry ?
    think it would be neat to get 9 more “prayer backers” !
