Mark Batterson, New York Times Bestselling Author and Lead Pastor of National Community Church in Washington D.C. joins the Guys Like Us to share his story. Originally from Chicago, Mark had the way paved as a scholarship basketball player at the University of Chicago before he responded to his calling and transferred to Central Bible College. Mark shares his most recent book titled Whisper, on hearing and discerning the voice of God. What does success look like? For Mark it's being famous in his home. "The greatest message deserves the greatest marketing." One core conviction of National Community Church is that the church ought to be the most creative place on the planet. We discuss all this and much more. Looking forward for you to join us in this conversation.
Chris Broussard, Fox Sports Analyst by profession and a Disciple of Christ by creation, shares his walk with Christ and evokes a powerful word for us all. Chris’ first glimpse of the personal relationship you can have with Christ started when he heard this young woman, now his wife, in college praying like Jesus was right there with her. Chris knew being a follower of Christ was the right thing to do, but he did not want to accept the life. College was fun, and the American dream was right by his side. How can we fill this void for our life, besides Christianity? We have to repent for our sins, for what we’ve done, we have to accept that we’ve been living in sin. What race are you running and who do you want to run the race with? You do not have to get stuck in with living in the instant gratification, the sex, smoking, drinking, and partying scene. It comes with baggage down the road! You can skip that, what culture is telling you, it’s always worth it. BE BOLD.

What is the Guys Like Us?
Guys Like Us is a community of people desiring to learn what it means to be a Disciple of Christ. The word "disciple" means learner in Greek and is the foundation of this community. The biblical disciples, listened, questioned, and acted on God's word to learn about Him through a strong relationship in Jesus Christ. The world, no different than it was many years ago, calls on us to respond as disciples. We live to serve, love, and empower others through our approach of listening, questioning, and acting.
Mathētḗs (from math-, the "mental effort needed to think something through") – properly, a learner; a disciple, a follower of Christ who learns the doctrines of Scripture and the lifestyle they require; someone catechized with proper instruction from the Bible with its necessary follow-through
