discipleship

Welcome to discipleship! As you may already know, a disciple is a forgiven sinner who is following Jesus in repentance and faith - growing deeper, stronger, and beyond. The word disciple means an active learner who is growing to know Jesus and learning to be like Him.


Disciples are made by the Word of God proclaimed, in prayerful dependence on the Spirit of God, by the people of God, persevering in relationships in grace over time.


It is the joy and privilege of all God’s people to be involved in the process of discipleship and making disciples. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit empowers all disciples to speak the Word of God in a rich variety of ways.


Please join us in one of the following ways as we establish and equip each other to be more and more like His Son.

The Course Of Your Life

What would it take for you to change your life and make decisions and choices firmly based on Christ’s Great Commission? The Bible says it would take the Holy Spirit applying the life-changing truths of the Gospel in a way that deeply impacts both your heart and your way of thinking about the course of your life.

The “Course of Your Life” helps you to apply these truths as you prayerfully soak in God’s Word and think carefully about its practical implications. And you do all this with the assistance and prayerful encouragement of a group of Christian brothers and sisters who are doing the same thing along side you.

Requirements: Adults who are faithful, available, and teachable. Each group meets for 2 hours each week, with an additional hour spent in separate study with a group member. A retreat is also held. Class size is limited to 12. Contact one of the leaders below for more information and to register.
