  • I have a nagging doubt that just won’t shift. It comes to me at church during the singing. It haunts me on my commute to work. It bothers me when I am sat at my desk and it visits me when I am stuck in those long boring meetings that seem to be part of every job I have ever had. I can’t help thinking that what we call discipleship isn’t quite what Jesus had in mind. What we have settled for in our pursuit of God doesn’t seem to match God’s expectations of us.

    In order to find out answers to my nagging questions, I went on a global journey to track down experts in discipleship who could help me get back to discover what it means to follow Christ in the 21st century. I wanted authentic Christianity, I wanted to learn about whole hearted discipleship. I spoke to well known Christian leaders like Professor NT Wright, Andy Crouch and Jo Saxton but also to Christians you may never have heard of but who are quietly getting on with radical obedience to Christ. My journey took me to Hells Kitchen in New York, the Royal Albert Hall in London, an echoey service corridor in Nashville, to Wall Street and to the scene of a recent stabbing of a young boy because another teenager wanted to steal his bike. I spoke with artists, activists, researchers, theologians, entrepreneurs, and politicians. Their answers were to offer me a change in understanding and practice of discipleship – what I am calling a ‘discipleshift’. This podcast follows my journey and my prayer is that it will help and inspire you to more authentically follow Christ in our increasingly complex world.

    This podcast explores issues rarely spoken about in church, it connects the dots between discipleship and areas of our lives that infrequently receive attention.
