Whether you are just starting to explore the Christian faith or have been a long time follower of Christ, CenterPointe provides many opportunities for you to take next steps on your spiritual journey. We greatly value Sunday morning worship gatherings. We make serving with our community a priority. We also value getting together throughout the week to discover more about God and the Christian life. We know that following Jesus is the most challenging thing you will ever do. Don’t attempt it alone! If you are interested in learning more about our discipleship groups, email Ruth Kelder (email@example.com). We’d love to help you get connected!
A disciple is a learner, or an apprentice. Discipleship Triads are groups of 3 or 4 people, gender specific, who meet regularly to encourage one another in our understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, it will grow deeper quicker as you spend time with others reading the Bible, reflecting on what God might be saying to you through the Bible and circumstances, and responding with prayer and action. Discipleship Triads safe places to ask questions and to be encouraged while going through all of the ups and downs of life.
At CenterPointe, Missional Communities are groups of 12-30 people who are united through Christian community and share a common mission of serving in a particular neighborhood or network of relationships. These groups have a strong value on life together and make it a priority to build relationships with those who are curious about the Christian faith. These mid-sized groups feel like extended family and meet 3 – 4 times a month in ways that pay attention to the three dimensions of the life Jesus modeled while on earth:
UP: time with God and learning how to be His sons and daughters
IN: sharing lives as brothers and sisters in Christ
OUT: living as sent servants among the people and places we do life
Huddles are vehicles used to train and equip current and future leaders who are committed to following God in mission and to be disciples who makes disciples. A trained huddle leader invites 4-10 people into an intentional, ongoing discipleship relationship for 9 – 12 months. This is a high commitment group which learns a framework and tools for living out biblical principles of Christian life. The huddle environment provides a place of encouragement and accountability, always asking “What is God saying to you?” and “How will you respond?” Huddles form as leaders are identified, meet weekly, and equip people to lead in ministry. It is our goal to use Huddles to create a culture of discipleship in every area of CenterPointe.
