Discipleship
Taught by: Full-time Pastors
September - December 2017
# of weeks: 12

Jesus’s final and greatest command for Christians was to go out and make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). The goal of this course is to create disciples and partnerships with other disciples. The course begins by laying the theological groundwork for Christians on lessons about salvation, justification, sanctification, sin, the trinity, faith, and the discipline of discipleship. Students then engage in lessons and discussions on how these theological truths apply to their walk as a disciple of Christ. One hallmark of GCC’s discipleship courses is the deep intimacy and accountability that students encounter through friendships and relationships that carry them beyond the 12 weeks of the class into your walk with God for life.

Who can apply, and what is the max number of members? Max number is generally around 12 people.
