Discipleship Ministry

"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ"

(Ephesians 4:11-13 NKJV)

Ministry Focus

To provide participants with a fundamental knowledge of the bible, the Christian faith, and their calling and gifts.


To provide a thorough and comprehensive Christian Education curriculum that will aide in the spiritual growth and maturity of this body of Christ.
