What is Community Life?
The vision of Community Life is to connect all people who call Christ Church their home to a Community Life Group (Sunday school, small group, adult Bible studies and mentoring relationship), so they can be equipped to become disciple-makers in their home, neighborhood, workplace and city.
There are three aspects to our Community Life strategy. Each aspect reflects the different stages Jesus’ disciples experienced as they became disciple-makers.
- Engage Curious Disciples:
Through seminars and conferences, we introduce the Gospel and encourage participants to take another step of faith so they might connect to a Community Life Group.
- Equip Convinced Disciples:
Once in a Community Life Group, we want to move people through a spiritual growth process. The process starts with learning the Gospel through participation in a Sunday school class, then moves to contributing to the covenant community in a small group, and ultimately to being equipped for a disciple-making as a lifestyle in Christ College.
- Empower Committed Disciples:
We provide ongoing training for leaders as they respond to the call to make disciples through continuing education and training opportunities in the form of specific seminars, forums and one-on-one coaching.
