In partnership with New Life Community Church, we offer a 7-month training experience for people who are committed to their growth. The discipleship experience begins with a weekend retreat where you bond with your team mates and dive into the book of Jonah. It ends with a global missions trip in a foreign country with an emphasis on sharing your faith, loving the poor, and praying for the sick.
In the months leading up to the trip you will be challenged by various scriptures and teachings that address the topics written on the bottom of this page. The school has an emphasis on a disciplined devotional life, character development, and living out your faith as God intended. Students love the teaching and meaningful conversations provoked by the teachings. They also establish significant friendships and routines that anchor their lives in the teachings of Jesus.
The school costs $800 per participant which pays for the materials, 3 conferences, and meals during each meeting. Most students pay on a monthly basis. The school starts in January and ends in July. Students who graduate from the school are typically ready to enter into some type of leadership role in their church and/or their community. For more information on the discipleship school please ask one of our leaders for an application and a time to interview.
The interview is designed to help you understand the commitments and also help us know how to best serve you. Below are some of the topics covered in the school.
