“Discipleship Intensives” (or DI’s) are classes and workshops offered throughout the year and led by our pastors and elders, as well as special experts outside our church. The primary purpose of DI’s is to provide sound, healthy teaching that accords with Christian faith and grows us into Christ, at a level of depth or breadth beyond what we give in our Sunday worship and small groups. DI’s are meant for long-time Christians, people who are new to Christ, and everyone in between.
Information and registration for individual DIs usually are posted a month before they start. Please see below for our current and upcoming DIs.
