Welcome to Fire On Your Head, the podcast designed to "kick you out of the upper room". We're a discussion and interview-styled show hosted by me, Steve Bremner, a blogger, author, and missionary to Peru. Join me as I interview authors and other interesting people, and sometimes post shows just by myself getting something out of my system. Sometimes I'm funny, sometimes serious, but hopefully you'll find it always worthwhile.

This week I am privileged to have Mark Burgess back on the podcast for the first time in almost three years exactly to the month. We discuss family on mission and give some descriptions of experiences, good and bad, that we’ve had creating a discipleship culture here in Chorrillos, Peru. It’s not a matter of prioritizing family or the mission, but combining them and being a family, whether biological or extended, who are on a mission together. We believe this is the bedrock for seeing disciples made, and a movement expand as we’re finally starting to see down here in our sphere of influence. 

In this show we discuss: 

  • Why your pastor can’t disciple you 
  • Why discipleship is HARD work and the reason many would rather not bother with it, and instead resort to collecting people to be passive and sit in the pew week after week
  • The danger of allowing words like “organic”, “missional”, and “discipleship” to be buzzwords without any practical life application
  • Why we need to walk the walk and not just talk the talk of the Kingdom of God and the making of disciples
  • Practical ways we can do family on mission in our own contexts and cultures
