New Believers Curriculum

GROW - God Re-Shaping Our Ways

"Come, follow me!" With these words, Jesus invited the first disciples on a journey of transformation. Revolutionizing their conception of God, prayer, religion, and spirituality, Jesus led this motley group on a three-year crash course in living. He then instructed them to "disciple others." This training of disciples, now called discipleship, is the next step after conversion in the forming of a Biblical Christian.

We have developed G.R.O.W. (God Reshaping Our Ways) Curriculum as an aid to this discipleship process.
