Ascend is a program designed to develop Christlike disciples and disciple-makers actively seeking to answer God's call on their life.
Registration for the next session will open in the fall.
Phase One of Ascend focuses on building the foundation of what it means to be a Christian. We walk through the importance of discipleship, the value of reading the Bible, and what it looks like to honor God through the Sacraments.
Phase Two of Ascend uses the momentum of what we learned in Foundations to dig into all the different books of the Bible. We get to overview the genres, key people, and key lessons throughout the Old and New Testaments and see how the information applies to today's context.
Phase Three of Ascend is an opportunity for each person to learn their strengths, gifts, and callings to determine a personal mission for their life. We also get the chance to learn hands on tools and techniques for leading others and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.
Phase Four of Ascend is the culmination of everything learned in the previous phases and applied to everyday life. By taking into account the specific missions and areas of interest for ministry discovered in Strategy, people will form Grow Groups. These groups will then serve and grow together.
