Living Out the 4 Focus Points

In order to see the 4 Focus points established in students’ lives, they are immersed in a lifestyle designed to develop personal character, cultivate a living relationship with God, and identify their unique gifts and callings. They will be coached in hearing the voice of God and living a balanced Christian life. These are some of the strategies put into practice during their daily time at the local church:

 

  • Daily worship or intercession – Each day begins with a time to focus on worship and prayer.
  • One-on-One Discipleship –We focus on modeling the truths that we learn and providing a transformational environment (opposed to transactional).
  • Sectional Discipleship – We build Biblical masculine and feminine identities based on the truth of the Word of God in a small group setting.
  • Biblical Lectures – We bring in speakers from outside and inside the church to impart Biblical truths and philosophies.
  • Church Practicum – Students have hands-on ministry training and experience with seasoned leaders in order to equip the them for future integration within their local church settings.
  • Small Groups – Community is the context in which we will walk out our faith – students will take part in the local church’s small groups ministry.
  • Pastoral One-on-One’s – Students will have the opportunity to learn from and build relationship with experienced local church pastors and leaders.
  • Local Outreach—Local churches, soup pantries, homeless shelters, inner city outreach.
  • World Outreach – Students get a hands-on, cross-cultural experience serving the Body of Christ in other parts of the world.
