The mission of the church is to make disciples, that is, followers of Jesus. That's what Influence Discipleship is designed to help Bethany do. Influence Discipleship classes take place on Sunday mornings. We have a core of classes offered on a rotating basis which make up our Influence Discipleship Track. This track reenforces Bethany's vision by influencing you to follow Jesus more closely while imparting understanding of how to grow in your relationship with Him, empowering you for growth and ministry, and releasing you into service in His Kingdom by helping you understand His plan for your life. This track is not just for newcomers, but for everyone. If you've been around Bethany for a long time but are looking to learn how you can grow in your relationship with Jesus or to connect with others, this track is for you. If you are new to Bethany and don't know where to start, this track is for you!
Every two months, we also offer a variety of classes covering a wide range of topics that will help strengthen your faith and prepare you to serve others and make disciples. These include studies through books of the Bible, apologetics, biblical theme studies, and more.
The Influence Discipleship classes are offered on an annual rotating schedule, and can be found in the Influence Discipleship Track by clicking here.
