Register for Fall 2016

Christians are God’s adopted kids. And God’s adopted kids are to be about their Father’s business: glorifying God by being transformed by the gospel and making disciples who make disciples.

For many of us, if we have any church background at all, we were trained to attend activities, not equipped with the Word to apply the gospel to the heart in biblical community in order to build reproducible disciples. As a result, we struggle to read our own hearts, let alone the secular culture around us. It does not have to be this way. God’s Word can go forth from us with God’s power. In fact, it must!

You are already a disciple of someone or something and you are already making disciples of someone or something. Come learn how to be an effective disciple of Jesus who invites people into the incomparable joy of following Jesus.
