Course Descriptions:

Start Here
Why is a relationship with Jesus important?
Led by Adam Greenwell
Start Here, the first of our Core Four series of discipleship courses, is the launching point for understanding why a relationship with Jesus is important. During our five weeks together, we explore the foundations of the Christian faith, what it means to be a Christian, who Jesus is and was, and why He died. In an informal gathering, we follow a presentation with large and small group discussions to fully explore what we believe and what it means for us from now on. Whether you are new to following Jesus or just curious about the faith, Start Here!

The Kingdom of God
Why did Jesus spend so much time teaching about God’s Kingdom?
Led by Larry Severa
Jesus came announcing the gospel of the Kingdom of God. After He was killed and raised from the dead, He met with His disciples for forty- days teaching them about the Kingdom of God. As this was so important to Jesus, it is critical that we understand all we can about the it. 

Life in the Spirit
How does God’s Spirit help us to live in harmony?
Led by Brad Hudson
As Jesus’ disciples, how we live together matters for our own growth. It also helps the people around us believe what we have to say. This course explores how we can live in harmony through the presence of God’s Spirit with us.

Power Evangelism
How do I tell others about Jesus?
Led by Allen Hodges
The title of this course refers to a book by John Wimber, the founder of the Vineyard Movement. In this class, we learn how to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit as He uses us to lead people into the Kingdom of God. God is passionate about bringing people into a relationship with Himself. When we are open to His prompting, we can co-labor with Him in this. Acts 1:8 points out that the purpose of the power of the Holy Spirit is evangelism.
