What is Kingdom Journey? It's a deliberate discipleship process. That's the key word—process. Most of us think we'll grow into godliness and Christ-likeness by learning more information. (We subconsciously think, "If I can just hear a good sermon or be in a good Bible study or read a good book") But in Kingdom Journey, we assume the path to growth involves experiential learning. i.e., we learn from our experiences as we try to live out Jesus' teachings. We believe this reflects the way Jesus taught his own disciples.
Furthermore, we believe this journey is less about addition and more about subtraction. In other words, we won't produce the fruit God intends without being pruned. We won't be transformed into Kingdom people without leaving some stuff behind. For us to grow into God's intentions, we can't just add more Bible knowledge. Instead, we have to surrender to Jesus' way of making disciples. Kingdom Journey is an intentional process that opens us to the Spirit's influence and provides trained guides to help us process what God's doing in our lives.
Kingdom Journey consists of three segments:
The first stage we have identified is PILGRIM — The Path To Personal Transformation. In this stage we offer a weekend retreat that leads into a 24-week, guided journey that cultivates deep learning, rich practices, and intentional reflection. You can hear more about Pilgrim in the videos below. You can also register for the next offering using the form below.
The next stage is to go through a 12-week class that prepares you to become a GUIDE for other pilgrims. In this process, you will learn what it means to journey with others as they navigate life in a discipleship relationship.
The final stage we call the ADVENTURER — Living Into The Kingdom. This is a learning community that intentionally explores and ushers the Kingdom of God into the community and world in creative ways.
We believe these paths lead us, not only live into the kingdom personally, but also be agents of the Kingdoms in our community and world.
