The concentration in discipleship focuses on the spiritual and faith formation of the person while providing an intentional process for gift discernment and theological reflection to help develop ways to live out one’s faith. Prayer, dialogue, skills development, faith sharing, and personal reflection are offered in a way that respects each person’s spirituality and life experience. The use of small cohort groups models the communal dimension of church, encourages deepening levels of trust, and provides for the articulation and sharing of one’s faith story. Each group is supported by a facilitator who provides continuity, models leadership skills, provides prayer experiences, and one-to-one support to the participants. Discernment of gifts and call is an important part of the process and is addressed specifically throughout the program.
