The original 12 disciples, plucked from boats, beaches and tax booths, had tons of questions for Jesus. They were curious, passionate followers but they didn't always understand what Jesus was up to. We're really not much different from them.
So our name - DUH!SCIPLES, is a tongue in cheek nod to those very first followers who hungered to understand and learn how to be more like Jesus, but who at their core were goofballs like us.
We are a tight-knit community of students who are learning what it means to follow Jesus. Part of growing in our faith is being able to ask those tough questions and dig deep to find answers. It's ok to express doubts and confusion ... we don't have to have everything figured out to be faithful followers.
"Do good stuff" is one of our battle cries for a good reason ... we try to do a LOT of good stuff. We find ways to put ourselves out there for our neighbors and take care of each other ... no strings attached. Teaching students about servant leadership gives them the confidence and compassion to live out their faith in their everyday lives.
The most influential people in a young person's life are their friends. Period. When we have friends that have our backs and our best interest at heart, we're going to thrive. We are here to lift one another up, share each other's burdens and celebrate our victories.
