Next Steps

We are committed to providing a Discipleship Track for the membership to move from ground-level discipleship to lead-level discipleship, which means to become fully functional disciples of Christ.  

The Christian Life and Service Seminars (C.L.A.S.S.) represent sixteen hours of training that equips members with the tools to progress from one level of commitment to the others.  Each seminar provides four hours of training and focuses on a particular purpose of the church. The church provides four Seminars:

  • Membership 101 - Discovering Church Membership
  • Discipleship 201 - Discovering Spiritual Maturity
  • Ministry 301 - Discovering My S.H.A.P.E. for Ministry
  • Mission 401 - Discovering My Life’s Mission
