Institute for Discipleship Developing Youth Disciple Online
The Institute for Discipleship (IFD) at Southwestern College has been awarded $10,000 from the Moody Memorial Permanent Endowment Fund in Galveston, Texas, for the development of Youth Disciple Online (YDO).
“I am so please to have the support of the folks at Moody,” says Steve Wilke, executive director of the IFD.
According to Wilke, this project will provide youth the opportunity to study and discuss the scriptures totally online. Gone will be some of the challenges due to schedules and transportation. In addition, this format provides for groups to be international. The funding provides for the development of the study as it is moved from a printed manual to an online format, and for facilitator training and promotion.
