He now lives out his passion of speaking, teaching, and writing about the disciple-making mission of the church. Most recently Greg served as Executive Pastor of Discipleship at Christ Church of Oak Brook, IL. in the Chicago western suburbs. From 1998-2002, Greg held the position of Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program at Fuller Theological Seminary and Associate Professor of Lay Equipping and Discipleship. Prior to coming to Fuller, Greg enjoyed 24 years in pastoral ministry, primarily within Presbyterian churches, but most recently as Senior Pastor at the Saratoga Federated Church in the Silicon Valley, California.
Books By Greg Ogden:
- Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time (InterVarsity Press, 2003) Ogden argues for an application of Jesus’ and Paul’s personal investment approach to making disciples by holding the relational model of groups of three or four (triads/quads) as the optimum environment in which disciples are made.
- Discipleship Essentials: A Guide to Building Your Life in Christ (InterVarsity Press, 1998) Discipleship Essentials provides both structure and a curriculum to implement the triads and quads mentioned above. In twenty-four lessons centered around a core truth amplified through scripture memory, biblical study and contemporary reading, an engaging, thought-provoking and personal application makes for a lively interaction. The goal is accelerated transformation with a multiplying effect.
