​​​Discipleship  Strategy

NOTE TO MOBILE USERS:  If you decide to take on this challenge, I've noticed some of the blue buttons (links) seem to have a mind of their own.  They will be on the correct page, but might not be embedded where they belong.  So you may need to scroll a little.  When I move this to a different platform in March or April, 2018, the problem will be solved.

Chuck and Shirley Baily.  Our passion is working with young adults and also Waynesburg University students as part of the outreach of the First Presbyterian Church of Waynesburg, PA.  My wife, Shirley, and I served the CCO for three years as resident directors in Martin Hall, along with 182 freshmen and sophomore young men.  ​​We also  mentored many of the 69 CCO staff who followed us onto Waynesburg's campus.  Founded in the fall of 1971, the CCO (The Coalition for Christian Outreach) now has over 200 staff members serving students on 140 campuses located mostly in the northeast USA.Shirley also had a 22 year teaching career at Waynesburg.

Dave and Jen Baily.  Dave was born while Chuck and Shirley were working for the CCO, and he spent his first two years with lots of older "brothers" in Martin Hall.  Much later, he met Jen Williams who was working for the CCO as the R.D. in Denny Hall.  They were married and finished the year with the CCO at Waynesburg.  Then, they continued at Carnegie Mellon.  

Matthew 4:19. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people."  
Matthew 28:18,19a. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples…
Luke 9:23. Then he (Jesus) said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
John 15:16. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.  (from the NIV).

If you really do want to be faithful to Jesus' four challenging commands above, you'll find some excellent resources here to help you develop a more effective discipleship strategy.  Although it is possible for us to become more grow in some areas of our discipleship alone, ideally, you will want to find one or two others and go through this material together.  If you have any questions/comments, just email me at chuckbaily@hotmail.com. 


​So...Do YOU have a strategy for your discipleship?    

WHY NOT TRY THIS ONE?  IT'S A STRATEGY THAT'S BEEN GOING STRONG FOR OVER 47 YEARS. Actually, I am just speaking for myself.  It's 2,000 years old.

Completing the ten sessions on this site will:

1) Help you be more intentional and effective as you have spiritual conversations with those you care about.  And God may surprise you with a few others.

2) Help you better understand what it looks like to serve Christ in every area of life, including the vocation God has called you to.   

3) IF YOU ARE A WAYNESBURG UNIVERSITY STUDENT, there's more.  If you want some additional coaching, instead of charging for it (you are already spending lots of money to be here), instead WE ARE GIVING MONEY AWAY TO YOU !!  See details under the "Waynesburg University Challenge" tab.

CAN YOU SPARE JUST FIVE MINUTES??... to get a clearer picture of what you are being asked to consider?

If you are out of college, you probably won't be going to our Jubilee Conference (video #2) which is primarily aimed at students. You are already living out some of the challenges our students are preparing for.  If so, please join us and you will have the opportunity to share what you've learned with a few of them.
