This morning marked the completion of a transition which DiscipleMakers founder Bill Dripps began planning years ago: handing leadership of DiscipleMakers to a successor equipped to carry on DM’s ministry and core values. His plan was finally realized when the DM Board of Directors officially installed Peter Krol as DM’s president at their meeting today. (Bill will continue to serve with DM as a missionary and as President Emeritus.)
“DiscipleMakers has become greater and bigger and more used of God and more exciting with each year that goes by,” Bill said. “As I look to the future, I am excited about what God is doing. My hope and my confidence is that DM will go on to many greater and better and more effective things for the Lord in the future than He's ever done through us in the past.”
When asked how he felt about this milestone, Peter replied, “We’ve got a terrific, growing staff team. We have more clarity than ever before on our mission and goals. And we’ve got a great God who has gifted us with a strong group of leaders. I’m so thankful to work with these leadership teams as we expand to new campuses and continue making disciples of Jesus Christ.”
Please pray for DiscipleMakers as we pursue these goals in faith that God will continue working in students’ hearts!
