Growing Disciples Around the Table
Apr 1, 2017
Jesus used mealtimes as an opportunity for fellowship and to teach more about His Word. Throughout Scripture we see Him interact in homes, feasts, hillsides, and beach fires—sharing food, fellowship, and teaching with His followers.
At Marine Corps Base Quantico, Navigators Michael and Velma Jacobs follow Christ’s example. Each week they have Marines in their home to share physical and spiritual food. They use these times to encourage and disciple new Marine lieutenants going through basic training school, Marines preparing for duty in U.S. embassies, officers attending Expeditionary Warfare School, or those flying the President’s helicopters. By intentional discipleship and fellowship around the table, they are laying foundations for generations of laborers throughout the Marine Corps.
