Discipleship: The Church's Challenge - Ben Maxson

Discipleship: The Church's Challenge

by Ben Maxson

Discipleship – The Church’s Challenge: Discipleship is one of the greatest challenges facing us as a church today. Jesus’ commission to “make disciples” is one which we need to take seriously. He calls us to be fully committed followers who learn to live and walk with Him in every area of life. Our spiritual growth is crucial to our spiritual health as individuals and as a church. This seminar will focus on what it means to be a disciple today where our spirituality is challenged by a world where religion and faith are confused by the absence of biblical truth and spiritual disciplines without biblical boundaries. Our lifestyles and values often reflect the world around us more than the experience with Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, of missionary parents, Ben Maxson has spent much of his pastoral ministry in the Northwest and Southern United States. Fluent in Spanish, he also gravitated back to his roots in South America to serve in two missions there. Maxson held the position of director of Stewardship at the world headquarters of Seventh-day Adventists from 1995 to 2004. During this time, he discovered and developed a new paradigm emphasizing biblical stewardship and shared this vision with the world church. Currently Ben is serving as senior pastor of the Paradise California Seventh-day Adventist Church. Ben is married to Mary Maxson, who served as the director of the Women's Ministry Department for the North American Division, and now is an associate pastor at the Paradise Seventh-day Adventist Church. They have two adult children and one grandchild. Ben enjoys reading, developing ministry materials, and is an avid scuba diver. He also enjoys digital photography and golf. Ben has special interests in the areas of spirituality, discipleship, and leadership training.
