Join the Awakening: Discipleship & Missions

Awaken to the Adventure

Disciples aren’t born; they’re made. It’s a process that takes time,
discipline, and God. In reality, it looks more like waking up than
attending a class.

As part of The Awakening, you can undergo a discipleship program
like no other, experiencing four months of intense training in another
country to prepare you for the ministry that awaits you for the rest of
the year.

Join The Awakening

mornings will be spent in training and your afternoons ministering in
local communities, activating what you’ve learned. In the context of
experiential learning, you will be discipled by mentors who want to see
you grow deeply in your faith.

You will be part of a community of other individuals who share your
passion and desire to come alive in Christ. This time will challenge
and stretch you in new ways, and you will never be the same.

Become a part of The Awakening in either Latin America or Africa and discover your role in the kingdom of God.

were made for greatness, to experience the abundant life and freedom
that Jesus promised. As they awaken, current participants are saying:

I don’t think that I will ever have such an opportunity to give up all of myself and all of my expectations as I do here. (Emily Tissot, Latin America)

Bible study has… turned into a church. So, we have church at noon
Tuesday-Friday under the tree in front of the market. I love watching
as people just bring their stool/chair/water container… and join in
the singing. We are going through the book of Galatians, and it is cool
to see how freedom is effecting their hearts.
(Denise Eckert, Africa)
