Bible Verse of the Day

Chillicothe Discipleship

"Discipleship" is a intra-denominational, bible study group for students in high school and college that meets twice a week at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm on a day of the week that least conflicts with everyone's schedule in Chillicothe, Ohio. Currently we are meeting on Monday and Thursday evenings (except on the week of the fourth Thursday which conflicts with a Chrysalis Hoot).

Each week the discussion is led by a volunteer youth member who selects the topic and supporting materials/scripture. Meetings include a discussion on the weekly topic, sharing of joys and concerns, and prayer. Parents are always welcome to come to our weekly meetings.

River Valley Community Church

River Valley is my home church and is located on SR 104 at the south end of Waverly.


Emmaus is a nondenominational, spiritual renewal weekend that is hosted in community churches across the world. I participated on the Men's' Walk #4, table of John, through the Greater Scioto Valley Emmaus Community during September in 1996. I was also on the team for Men's Walk #15 in September 2001.



Chrysalis is the Emmaus equivalent for teens and young adults. Many of our Discipleship members have been participants and staff members in the Chrysalis communities in Portsmouth and Columbus. I served on serveral team for Boys' Flights, including lay director on Flight.


Compassion International Sponsorship

Sponsoring a child through Compassion International is something that I have prayed about for many years, but had never taken the steps to sign up. While at Ichthus 2000, I finally stopped at the Compassion table and selected a child to sponsor. One of my life goals is to visit every continent and Brazil immediately jumped out at me. Someday I would hope to visit South America to see Patricio (an exchange student from Chilé/Discipleship member/Chief Logan staff member) or my Compassion child, Jamile. Some benefits of being a Compassion sponsor include being able to receive and send correspondence through translators. Each child has only one sponsor and over 80% of contributions go directly to your child.

Some facts about Compassion International: Smart Money magazine, published by The Wall Street Journal, rates Compassion as one of the top ten charitable organizations in the country based on trustworthiness and overall efficiency. Compassion's program is Christ-centered. Every child is assisted through a local church and learns about Jesus.

"Come follow me and I shall make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19
