This is a project by and for men who are seeking to grow in their work of taking dominion over the world. We focus on rightly ordering ourselves and our world, by developing the virtues and skills necessary to this task—especially strength, workmanship, and wisdom.

For us to image God and bear his name, we must start with rightly ordering ourselves; he who is faithful over a little can be faithful over much. We must have a command of the issues, and then take command over them. Men should be builders and problem-solvers, and this is what Discipleship & Dominion is about.

We are not interested in negative exercises; we are focused on positive building. We do not merely analyze what is wrong, nor engage in endless polemics. We are interested in developing practical wisdom to represent God’s father-rule and be useful tools in his hands.

Who we are

We are explicitly Reformed, but we keep our content broadly Protestant in a historical sense.
