Courageous Discipleship in the Home (feat. Chris Harper)

Chris Harper dives into the theological concept Jesus as a prophet, a priest, and a king. These roles are mirrored in the responsibilities of fatherhood and leadership within a Christian family, and this episode is really about helping Christian fathers to reflect Christ in the family. Dads need to be leading but from a place of love, giving encouragement along with spiritual guidance, and the stewardship of the family's emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Men have a unique responsibility in the home to foster an environment that nurtures faith and aligns with Christian values.
