As we seek to be the healthiest church possible, the CLASS system will play a key role in this process. CLASS stands for:
Christian Leadership and Spirituality Seminars
These four seminars are designed as our core spiritual growth process. When Jesus first met his disciples he said, ‘come and see.’ Jesus wanted his followers to observe his life and see how much love and power he had to give. As the disciples grew in their faith, Jesus ‘turned up the heat’ or the intensity and told them they had to carry their own cross. In essence Jesus was saying ‘come and die to yourselves and live for me.’ These seminars are designed to give us the motivation and tools to take that same journey with the disciples.
