Ministries

We seek to fulfill our vision of helping people grow into fully devoted disciples of Jesus, guided by our Core Values. We draw inspiration from John Wesley’s strategy for making disciples in 18th century England: “For each wave of grace, there was a corresponding formative element to connect people to that grace…this conscious alignment is one of Wesley’s finest legacies to the Christian tradition.” The Way to Heaven by Steve Harper, pg. 121. We have identified four key stages in the journey to becoming a fully devoted disciple. These four stages form our process for making fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
