Teacher: Tom Widmer & Scott Daniel

Do you have a passion to make disciples on the foreign field? Do you have a vision for a practical initiative that might help you go and make those disciples?

We will practically strategize on the ‘how to’ of delivering the Gospel within a specific initiative on the field for the advancement of the kingdom.

Note: This course teaches the practical ways to pursue a high impact mission initiative, and will explore what it takes to be considered as potential Field Staff with Grace Community Church. Having a good understanding of the great commission through Perspectives or another missions course is not required, but highly recommended.

Grace-Based Parenting for All Ages | Thrive

September 17th - November 19th, 2017

Today, parents feel the pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" kids, and it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents. This class will present a big-picture view of God's plan for parents, no matter what age your kids are. Kids don’t need the latest parenting strategy, they need the rescuing grace of God, the same grace their parents need too. Freed from the burden of trying to be the Holy Spirit for our kids, we can embrace parenting God's way and trust Him to work in their lives through us.
