A Practical Plan for Transformative Discipleship

How do we grow as disciples, becoming the "fully alive" image-bearers we are called to be in Christ? What principles and practices need to inform our daily rhythms so that spiritual growth isn't merely a platitude, but an ever-increasing reality that touches and transforms every dimension of our lives? How can we cooperate with God's Spirit in order to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18)?

Over four sessions pastor Jeff Strong will lead participants through a weekend retreat focused on addressing these questions in concrete, practical ways. Participants will explore Jesus' command to love God heart, soul, mind, and strength and its connection to daily discipleship, and develop a customized plan for discipleship; one that offers hope and help to those who are wanting to experience deeper spiritual transformation in Christ.
