Discipleship NOW is an ongoing education initiative designed to create connections between the sacred story, mission, your everyday life, and the world we live in today. It is an exploration of whole-life discipleship and how to embody the teachings and mission of Christ in ways that empower one to be Christ’s presence in daily life. Learn and grow as the mission and witness of the church comes to life in tangible expressions of faithful discipleship.
Discipleship NOW is designed to empower individuals who have a sense of passion and calling to grow and be shaped in their journey with Christ. Formation weekends within our Mission Center are offered over a period of two years—six sessions over two years—to be followed by one year of independent practice, during which the participant’s mission plan is lived out. One final formation weekend caps the Discipleship NOW experience.
