Life Development Institute
The Life Development Institute is the evangelistic backbone of the church. The Purpose Driven team works with new, transitioning, and current members to help them move from community to core members. The team facilitates the courses the make up the Life Development curriculum and assist the Ministry in accomplishing the Great Commission.
We begin with "first base" which is "membership" or "knowing Christ". Our membership ministry is dedicated to making the first visit of a guest the best worship experience possible and making all guests feel welcome and a sense of belonging so that you as our guest will want to become part of "City of Praise". (Class 101)
"Second base" is the Maturity Ministry or "growing in Christ". This ministry is dedicated to assisting our new members to mature in Christ, learning to grow close to Him and developing a healthy worship covenant relationship with Him. (Class 201)
"Third base" is "Serving Christ" or "discovering your ministry". By the time a member gets to second base, he/she is looking for how to help in the ministry of sharing the Gospel. This ministry is dedicated to assisting our new members in discovering what God has saved them to do as we are all ambassadors of Christ once we belong to Him. (Class 301)
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matt 28:19-20)
