GROWING LEADERS

We think growing is better

BIBLE SCHOOL

Growing People in the Gospel, empowered by the Holy Spirit, is our passion. It is our desire to make growing as a follower of Jesus exciting in an interactive small group or classroom setting. We believe someone who follows Jesus, who grows in Christ, has a life marked by three distinctions:

  • A personal hunger to be led more by Jesus.
  • An evident passion to lead more like Jesus.
  • A outward-focued lifestyle that leads more to Jesus

To that end we desire to equip you by connecting you to Jesus, His gospel, and one another to bring renewal to the city in which you live.

We do this by offering Bible School Classes, Connection/Growth Groups, and Internships focused around intentional discipleship. LifeTRAINING isn’t reserved for the “spiritual elite.” It’s for everyone: stay-at-home mothers, group leaders, business-people, teachers, singles and anyone who wants to grow in following Jesus.

Most courses or groups run six to ten weeks in length and cost varies per course but the average range is $25.00-$50.00.
