LEARNING COMMUNITIES

a two-year journey of practical training, strategic planning, and community building


We learn how to build an extended Jesus-shaped family on mission as the context for discipleship, and how to become part of a Kingdom movement that goes beyond our own local church or organization.

We gather five times over the two years for intensive three-day immersions
along with a weekly online Coaching Huddle.

CALL DISCIPLES
”Intentionally invest in a few believers”
