Discipleship

We dream of a church filled with disciples who are following Jesus, being transformed by Jesus, and are joining Jesus in his mission to bless the world. We want to be a movement of transformed people whose lives are consistently marked by fervent prayer, interaction with Scripture, passionate worship, blessing others, and a commitment to the church.

Our Path to Discipleship

  • Foundation

    SundaysFebruary 12–April 9 5–6:30 p.m.The Commons

    Foundation is a nine-week discipleship experience where men and women will gain a foundation for living as missionary disciples in their everyday, ordinary lives. It takes place in the context of life on life relationships. We believe these nine weeks of Foundation will change you. And we believe Jesus wants to do something transformative in and through you over these weeks.

    Priority Registration
  • Formation

    Formation is a nine-month discipleship journey with a group of 3-5 people who are learning to trust and follow Jesus as missionary disciples in deeper ways. 

    Formation groups build upon the core beliefs and five rhythms they learned and experienced in Foundation as they continue to grow in a willingness to follow Jesus, be transformed by him, and join his mission to bless the world.

    A person joins a Formation group only through the personal invitation of a discipleship leader who has previously experienced both Foundation and Formation for himself or herself. The first nine-weeks in your Formation group will be spent experiencing Foundation together. We believe the teaching, curriculum, participatory experiences, and life-giving group interactions will foster a common bond within your Formation group and launch you toward greater spiritual growth.
