Real Stories

 “PLI provides a brilliance in discovering, becoming, and multiplying 1st century missional disciples (who then will multiply other disciples) in the 21st century.  The 2 ½ year Discipleship to Missional Community experience roots discipleship in Sacred Scriptures and also in the framework of Lutheran theology and doctrine.  And this experience also listens to and learns from other best practices from the whole Christian Church nationally and internationally.  PLI provides for many of us, who have had a passion and vision for discipleship, concrete ways to make this vision reality in this 21st century.  Fortunately, we are doing nothing new — simply following Jesus and the early Churches’ examples.”

“PLI has given me renewed enthusiasm, confidence and joy for life and ministry.”The reason we’re in PLI is simple. Our community is plagued by heroin addiction and overdose. After officiating at the funeral of another young high school student in our community I came back to our congregation and said, “This is enough.” We’re going to do something about this. That’s why we’re in PLI. We’re going to do something!
