Discipleship for Outreach

Come grow spiritually through our five-week Discipleship for Outreach training, and learn how outreach is a lifestyle, not an event. Each session is interactive with a live presenter. The information gleaned from these experiences will open your eyes to see the world as Jesus views it, allowing us to make the greatest impact when we serve others. This training is open to and beneficial for everyone but is required for all those going on short-term mission trips or internships. If you are unable to attend a session, the videos can be accessed online. For dates and more information, contact the Evangelism and Outreach Department.

Miki Kellerman

Each of us are wired differently, but all in God’s image. Find out how to better understand these differences in a team environment. Our unique wiring impacts the way we think and look at situations, people, and tasks. During this session, teams will learn strategies how to celebrate and work with team dynamics.

Joseph Siacunco

It is vital to genuinely know who we are in Christ; it influences all we say and do. To have an effective ministry and truly fathom his amazing grace, it is imperative for believers to understand and exhibit what this means.

Erin Kellerman

It is important to understand cultural norms so they don’t become barriers in sharing the Gospel. Cultural awareness is a vital component to having a positive mission experience. Interacting with a new culture will not only change your worldview; it will transform your mind as you see God’s heart for the nations.
