Disciple Makers

Disciple making training is available for women seeking basic training and intensive preparation.

Making Disciples Course, 10-week study led by Connie Cirafesi,Monday 6:30-8:30p.m. via ZOOM

Women’s Discipleship Basic Training: the What, Why, and How of Making Disciples: Thursday, September 10th, 6pm – 8:30pm 
Jesus made it clear that His method for spreading the Gospel and the Kingdom of GOD is US!  WE are to make disciples.  What does that mean exactly?  What does it look like? Come learn what the Bible teaches about making disciples and be encouraged that it is something ANYONE can and should do!  You will learn the vision, how to find hungry women, and how to get started. If you are already making disciples, this will equip you with more tools for your mission and acquaint you with other women with the same passion.  We are better together!

Women’s Discipleship Training Intensive: A Disciple Making Curriculum: September 25th & 26th, Friday 6:30pm – 9pm and Saturday 9am – 3:30pm 
This course is for anyone who wants to teach others to be solidly grounded in biblical faith. (Or those who want to learn the basics themselves!) It covers such essentials as assurance of salvation, walking in the power of the Spirit, understanding and applying forgiveness, discerning God’s will, and spiritual disciplines like prayer, daily time with God, and memorizing and meditating on Scripture.  The goal is for you to be armed with a tool that you can easily pass on to others.

All training is worthwhile as a huge encouragement to be disciple makers.
