The Discipleship Path

Meeting people where they are at and helping them take their next steps in staying rooted in Christ, growing in their love for others, and bearing fruit that makes a difference in this world.

What is the Discipleship Path?

A discipleship path is simply a process for helping us take our next steps on our journey with Jesus. It’s our GPS, that shows directions for how we get from where we are spiritually, to a consistent lifestyle of abiding in Christ, loving others, and bearing fruit that makes a difference in this world. It involves learning opportunities, Christian community, practices, and practical tools, that equip us to live out our full potential in Christ (Ephesians 4:12).
