Is a small group of people of the same gender that meet weekly to:
1.) Check in personally for encouragement and accountability.
2.) Open God’s word to study the scriptures together.
3.) Seek God in prayer together often.
These groups are centered on God’s word and have a high focus on studying and seeking God together. Fellowship and fun are not the focus but are encouraged in these environments also. In other words, while both are important, this discipleship environment is more formation than fellowship.
Is a mixed-gender group of people from a certain geographical area that meet regularly to fellowship, break bread, care for one another, have fun together, go serve the city, open the bible, and pray together. Each group decides what the format of the group is going to be and exists either perpetually, by school year, or by semester. In other words, while both are important, this discipleship environment is more fellowship than formation.
A 9-month-long Cohort Group (of 3-6 people of the same gender) that travels through the EQUIP program. This content familiarizes people with the Bible’s most clear commands of a disciple. In this cohort, you will develop deep friendships and experience a tight relational community that will support one another on this journey. You will learn what the bible teaches about prayer, God’s word, basic Christian Doctrine, evangelism, being a healthy church member, stewardship, your work as worship to God, and much more. EQUIP is a prerequisite to many of our leadership opportunities in Kingdom Institute(Kingdom Institute here needs a hot link or anchor).
