Discipleship Institute

The Discipleship Institute curriculum is designed to provide continuous spiritual growth for Christian disciples by reflecting the axes of the cross.
Our vision is to create a church body that loves, follows and models Christ in their character, in their relationships and by actively seeking to witness to the lost and disciple others.
The purpose of the institute is to teach the people of God to obey the commands of God.


  • Courses in Laps 1, 2 and 3 are considered “core courses.” A diploma will be awarded to each participant who completes all of these core courses.
  • Participants will receive a certificate of completion of each individual course provided they have not missed more than three classes.
  • After completing all of the courses in Laps 1, 2 and 3, participants may receive a diploma by submitting a “Request for Diploma” to the Minister of Christian Education, Rev. Diann Ash. Forms are located in the magazine racks
    throughout the church.
