“The ResLife Discipleship Program is designed to come alongside people 18-25 years old on their journey of faith to define the call of God in their life and give them a Kingdom worldview. We will equip them with the tools to become spiritually mature, relationally healthy, effective leaders. The goal of the program is to draw the greatness that God has placed in them to bring change to the world around them.” – Pastor Tom Smith, Senior Associate Pastor.
“I genuinely believe that what they’ve done in this program so far has equipped me & given me tools to be successful in life- from how i handle my conversations & confrontations with people, to learning scripture & being able to dive in & feel confident enough to do it.” – Ricky L., Discipleship Program Alumni
“I walked through the past nine months and I gained a family.” – Kailyn N., Discipleship Program Alumni
“We have watched students come alive in their walk with Christ as God has done major work in not only their lives but the lives of their families and peer groups. I recommend this program for any young adult who wants to grow in the character of Christ and learn what it looks like to live life in the Kingdom of God!” -Nick Mayo, Ministry Director of the ResLife Discipleship Program
“If you’re in a season of transition and searching for what the Lord has on your life and the plans that He has, and if you want to learn to grow in relationship with him and connect with him more, and be surrounded by brothers and sisters doing the same thing, then I highly recommend the Discipleship Program.” -Lauren D., Discipleship Program Alumni
