If you are like most of the people in our community, you want to climb higher in your walk with God. But sometimes, that experience seems just out of reach.
Maybe you have had a burden to memorize Scripture, to grow in practical discipleship, to see your church revived--but you didn't really know where to start. Besides, life is already so busy! How could you ever squeeze more in?
You are not aloneI was fortunate. When I first became a Christian, I was just a young man just a couple months into my 20's, with virtually no church background. But some college friends immediately took me under their wing and introduced me to the nuts and bolts of personal discipleship. They taught me how to memorize Scripture, study and pray, discern God's will, witness, and more. They lived the life before me, and I began to grow.
At first, I assumed every new Christian got this kind of help. But I quickly discovered that was not the case. Lot's of information about the doctrines of the Bible. Lot's of sermons on what we should and shouldn't do. Seminars and workshops, books and study guides. But when it came to the nitty, gritty of how to make the Christian life actually work--not so much.
So I began to focus my life on giving people real life answers to real life discipleship. The Lord opened doors for me to spend the next 30 years traveling the world as a speaker, writer, educator, and pastor. And all that time, I've continued studying, testing, and sharing secrets to practical Christianity.
What is FAST?FAST started out as a tiny ministry, making simple study guides available to individuals here and there. But it began to grow, as people told their friends about our resources. And it has since developed into a thriving community with thousands of believers from around the world sharing and encouraging each other in their walk with God.
