As football fans across the country tune in this Sunday to watch “The Big Game,” Christians can reflect on the Bible’s ultimate team – Jesus’ Twelve Disciples – and how their teamwork still teaches us how to live the life of a disciple today.
Stuart Migdon, creator of 2-1-2 Discipleship and author of Jesus Take the Wheel, says Christians should team up to share the love of Jesus.
“Throughout scriptures, God brings His disciples together to work as a team in serving Him,” Migdon says. “All disciples should have someone that they encourage and who encourages them to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”
At least one former NFL star knows the value of Migdon’s teaching. David Tyree, who played as a wide receiver with the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens , is perhaps best known for his miraculous “helmet catch” in Super Bowl XLII that was instrumental to the Giants’ final-minute touchdown and victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots.
“Jesus Take the Wheel shares extremely powerful yet practical principles towards obtaining freedom in Christ,” Tyree says of Migdon’s book Jesus Take the Wheel. “This message separates the real from the religious.”
Migdon, through his effective ministry, helps Christians to realize that being a disciple of Christ is an all-encompassing lifestyle any time of the year that requires radical trust in Jesus, sincere devotion, and a clear understanding of who Christ was, and who He desires for us to be. For all areas of life, Stuart Migdon’s 2-1-2 Discipleship Program along with his book, Jesus Take the Wheel, teaches what it means to follow Christ actively and radically, and how to live out our own lives and our relationships with others in a way that is honoring to Him.
“God will unite you with people to disciple as you follow the great commission to teach another to observe all that Jesus commanded,” Migdon continues. “As you do, you will be building godly relationships that will result in revealing Him to others and His joy will be the outcome. Pray for God to lead you to those that seek or need discipleship. He will provide abundantly!”
Migdon takes points from his book and discipleship program and shares them through his short daily radio features called Key Moments. Key Moments is heard on more than 200 radio stations in 37 states and can be aired in any city in the country. Transcripts can be read daily on www.jesustakethewheel.org. Visitors to the site can also sign up for Migdon’s free Jesus Take the Wheel weekly e-letter, with encouragement on how to live as a disciple of Jesus as well as additional resources on living a life of total dependence on Him.
Stuart Migdon has narrowed discipleship down to three Ds: Discipline, Direction, and Dependence. He delivers Christ’s message and disciples God’s people in an exciting and educated way that remains true at all times to the passionate reality of God’s plan for His people. The 2-1-2 Movement teaches followers to disciple 2 people, 1 time per week for 2 months, in an effort which could breed an army of thousands of disciples, starting with just one person who chose to commit his life to Christ.

Stuart Migdon, raised in Reformed Judaism, gave his life to Christ and has been sharing his faith by discipling Jews and Gentiles ever since. Stuart was a successful businessman but realized that all the success in the world could not fill the emptiness that was growing within him. In 1991, he came to know Jesus as his Savior and felt a strong desire to live a life that would be pleasing to God. Migdon became an avid student of the Bible and wrote the book, Jesus Take the Wheel, 7 Keys to a Transformed Life. He then turned the work into a ministry called “2-1-2 Discipleship,” which builds on the foundation to disciple 2 people, 1 time per week, for 2 months. Migdon also developed the “2-1-2” study guide and facilitator’s guide, and a video series is in the works. He serves as an elder and biblical counselor at Calvary Chapel Old Bridge in New Jersey.
