According to Ephesians 4:11-16, the leaders of the church are to equip the church body to:
Do the work of ministry
Grow in the maturity of Christ
Be unified as one body
Every year we offer classes, seminars, and workshops to help you grow as a disciple of Jesus. Please call the church office to sign up.

DNA Group Training
We are conducting 2 equipping seminars on how to lead a DNA Group. Both classes will take place in the upstairs conference room in the church office:
Sunday, December 2nd from 4:00-6:00 PM
Thursday, December 6th from 6:30-8:30 PM
This two hour training session is an introduction to leading a DNA Discipleship group (triad or quad). It will cover what a DNA group is and how it is different from other groups, why they are critical to spiritual growth, and especially how to lead the group. Practical helps, illustrations, and exercises will be included in this class. We'll also discuss materials that your group could use, with examples to look through.
Below are some FAQ's for further information about this training. We hope you will sign up to attend.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
You may be a current or past member of a triad, quad, or discipleship group. You may be in a leadership role at church and need more training about DNA groups. You may be thinking of facilitating a DNA group, but need help with getting equipped and prepared, or are looking to build your passion for discipling others.
WHY IS THERE SUCH AN EMPHASIS ON DNA DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS?
Our church mission is to "Follow Jesus and lead others to follow Jesus." Most of us feel comfortable with the first part, to Follow Jesus, but many of us feel less sure how to lead others to follow Jesus. DNA group environments can be conducive to growing closer to Jesus, and growing passion to help others have a close relationship with Jesus.
WHAT WILL I GAIN FROM THIS TRAINING?
1) Become equipped to start a new group.
2) Build your confidence to enable you to facilitate a DNA group.
3) Learn some helpful tips and resources for facilitating the group you are already a part of.
