Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Discipleship

Teaching people to go deep in their relationship with God is core to the DNA of Living on the Edge. Daily Discipleship allowed us to mentor believers who felt isolated, stressed, and discouraged throughout the pandemic. Chip taught them to study God’s Word for themselves, hear His voice, and live out their faith.

We see the fire burning as more than 150,000 people have participated since 2020. While that number is exciting, what is even more important is what is happening in the spiritual lives of those people: They’re experiencing radical transformation. They’re becoming Difference Makers in their community.
