Winter Disciple-Maker’s Course

Hello all!  We’re getting ready for our winter round of classes for people who want to make disciples who, in turn, make disciples.  Here is the info you need to get involved.

Class Size: Class size is limited to 12 people.

Dates: The class is offered at two different times during the week: Tuesdays at 8:30pm – 10:30 (CDT – Texas Time), Saturdays at 9am – 11am (CDT – Texas Time).  Our first Tuesday class will meet on November 30, 2010.  Our first Saturday class will meet on December 4, 2010.  There will be a total of 10 classes in this course. Pick the Tuesday night OR the Saturday morning class.  They cover the same material and you DON’T need to attend both.

What will we cover?

Each class will have two parts.  The first part of the class will be an inductive Bible study of passages of Scripture that relate to ministry and missions that catalyze movements.  The second part covers the application of those principles within your mission field.

Article written by Paul

'Who is God?' was one of the top three sentences googled in 2007, according to Google Zeitgeist. According to Alexa, the top two religious websites are Muslim, with BibleGateway coming in at a close third. The Online Generation is spiritual. They are seeking. And the church is the last place they would go to find spiritual fulfillment. This site is dedicated to those walking with The Online Generation and living lives of obedience to all the commands of Jesus Christ.
