The Discipleship Ministry has two categories, invest and equipped. Equipped is a training program to prepare church members for small group leadership. Prospective leaders grow in understanding the purpose, goals, and methods of building a small group and then practice leadership skills during the training sessions. The Equipped course is designed to follow another course of study developed by Invest. Training in Equipped takes place in three ways:
1) by modeling the leadership and “feel” of a typical small group,
2) by leading discussions that allow the participants to understand new concepts, and
3) by giving participants the opportunity to lead and to receive evaluation of their leadership.
Invest, on the other hand, is a 12-week class that covers the essential doctrines of Christianity. Invest will help you grow in your knowledge, application and articulation of God’s Word and better know and glorify him in all of life.
The course meets on Saturdays at 9 a.m. in room 226. The dates for 2016-17 are:
