Studying the Bible is essential to becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ.

The group will meet for a total of 24 weeks, broken down into two 12-week, 90-minute sessions. Each Disciple Fast Track session will be based on weekly reading, engaging videos and thoughtful discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to take a spiritual gifts assessment and determine meaningful ways they can serve and live out their discipleship commitment.
