Discipleship as Process: The Manager’s Role in Connecting People to Faith

  • Marty McMahone


Are there elements of the management process that provide an opportunity for Christian business leaders to develop disciples, even within the context of a secular organization? In this article, the author argues that a proper understanding of the discipleship process opens the door for Christian leaders to develop disciples while doing good business work. He gives a picture of how business leaders can use their development opportunities to move people closer to the kingdom of God. It is argued that the biblical model of discipleship is a process that begins before conversion and carries forward past the conversion experience. Building on that foundation, the author then explains how a Christian leader can teach kingdom concepts in the context of employee development. This model offers significant advantages in an increasingly secular society.
