This is a newly formed three-year training program that will aim to equip all the adults of New Covenant to think and to live gospel-shaped lives. In all of the teaching & training offered in the New Covenant Institute of Disciple-Makers, we will seek to weave together the threads of Doctrine, Character, Mission, and Community so that we are being formed into mature disciples of Jesus who are equipped to make disciples of others.
By naming this the New Covenant Institute of Disciple-Makers, we want to stress that discipleship is not just something that happens to you; it is something that forms and molds you into a disciple-maker. The goal of Christian education is not merely to learn more for yourself – rather, the goal is to train you to become a mature follower of Jesus who is able and active in forming others into disciples of Jesus.
The New Covenant Institute of Disciple-Makers is largely built around a curricula that has been proven effective and transformative in other churches – The Gospel Project.
The Gospel Project is “a Bible study resource that invites Adults, Students, and Kids of all ages to dive deeply into God’s story of redemption through Jesus Christ. In every lesson, participants are immersed in the gospel and learn how when the gospel works on them, they become a part of the story, too, the very hands and feet in God’s gospel project.” At New Covenant, the Gospel Project courses will be offered over a three-year span on Sunday mornings.
