Equipping and Empowering More and Better Disciples

"…Train everyone you send and send everyone you train.”

Our heart is to equip and empower everyone to participate in the mission of the church: to glorify God and fulfill the Great Commission.

How do we do this?

  • Growth in Biblical Literacy – Providing Bible Study Groups to go deeper into their understanding of biblical interpretation, context, and application.
  • Growth in Biblical Discipleship – D-Groups are designed to join together in life-on-life relationship with fellow disciples. The goal: to represent Jesus to the world.
  • Growth in Spiritual Formation – Establishing rhythms (prayer, reading the Bible, fasting) that help us practice the way of Jesus.
