The word that immediately comes to mind when talking to Bob Beckwith is fruitfulness. Bob has served as the director of the UGA Wesley Foundation since 1999. His story is one of “a long obedience in the same direction” (to quote Eugene Peterson). Staying true to his call and passion for developing workable discipleship systems, he has seen significant growth at Wesley in their internship program, discipleship initiatives and conversion stories. And he has never strayed far from supernatural ministry, believing that discipleship necessarily includes prophetic ministry. In this episode, Bob shares about partnerships in Cuba, the role of prayer in developing disciples, and his heart for calling out something deeper in the next generation.
