Flex and Obey

This column highlights the ministries of Disciple's parent organization, Advancing the Ministries of the Gospel (AMG) International, a non-denominational missions agency.

With the Vancouver Winter Games still fresh on our minds, I am reminded of my most recent experience leading an AMG Mission Adventure Team during the Winter Olympics. This was during the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy, where we had the privilege of leading not just one but three short-term teams who all came alongside AMG missionaries Larry and Mary Lowery.

One of our foundational philosophies for mission teams is for team members to "flex and obey." Early on in the training process, we teach team members a little song to the tune of "Trust and Obey" that goes like this:

"Flex and obey,
for there's no other way,
to be happy in Jesus,
than to flex and obey."
