Disciple’s Journey

WHAT IS DISCIPLE’S JOURNEY?

Our goal is to create multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ. We aspire to see discipled individuals committed to the vision of “Transformation in Christ, Changing Lives Inside and Out,” who are equipped and inspired to live out their faith in a compelling way in the context of their network.

An Overview

 

 

Step 1

We invite you to connect with God and others here at First Church through A Disciple’s Journey: Step 1. If you are not yet connected as a member in full discipleship at First Church, this 4-week group will guide you as you begin your next step in your journey of discipleship. A Disciple’s Journey: Step 1 is for you if you wonder what connecting in faith in Jesus Christ is about or if you wish to connect in full discipleship at First Church as a new disciple/member. Pastor Rick Waters leads Step 1. For more information or to register, please contact Pastor Rick at rwaters@firstchurch.cc.


 

 

Step 2

If you have taken Step 1 and are considering your next step in discipleship, we invite you to discover God’s path for your life through A Disciple’s Journey: Step 2. This 6-week group is designed to teach you more about what it means to be a multiplying disciple of Jesus in the context of God’s church. Here people begin to discover God’s call on their life so they might have a fuller understanding of that call and begin practicing multiplying discipleship more
intentionally in the day to day life. Pastors Matt Lake and Janet Durrwachter lead Step 2. For more information or to register, please contact Janet Durrwachter at jdurrwachter@firstchurch.cc.

 

 

Step 3

If you have taken Steps 1 and 2 and want to go deeper in your discipleship journey, we invite you to embrace God’s call for your life through A Disciple’s Journey: Step 3. This 12-session group focuses on sending people who fully embrace God’s call on their life. These folks are committed to doing. They have the capacity to live into multiplying discipleship by sharing in the lives of others and influencing others beyond themselves. Pastors Matt Lake and Janet Durrwachter lead Step 3. For more information or to register, please contact Janet Durrwachter at jdurrwachter@firstchurch.cc.

 

 

Step 4

If you have taken Steps 1, 2, and 3, we invite you to fully live into your call as a disciple of Jesus Christ on a path of apprenticeship with a mentor. In this step, you will partner with a staff member to be released adn commissioned to influence transformational movement in the kingdom of God.
