CENTRAL LEADERS DISCIPLESHIP GROUP
Central Leaders is inspired by Jesus’s inner circle of 12 disciples. He spent the majority of His time with these men, disciplining them and teaching them to disciple. Jesus’s last command was to go and make disciples,” inviting them and his followers to repeat the process. Discipleship is imitation, and the continuation of Jesus’s emphasis on relational discipleship. We come to help teens hear the Holy Spirit, not take the place of the Holy Spirit. We Disciple because it’s how Christ changed lives and the method He told us to imitate. Transformation to the likeness of Jesus is the goal. Accountability is an integral part of this growing process. The result is the ability to hear, more clearly. God’s call on your lives. often resulting in movement towards mission and leadership. Central Leaders is for 10th-12th grade students who desire to deepen their relationship with God and learn to live and lead like Jesus. This group meets once a week, Sunday mornings after the 10:30 a.m. service. The Central Leaders Discipleship Group is a 9 month commitment. Students can apply to be a part of this group in late summer/early fall.
