Bible Interpretation 

This is our foundational track that we believe everyone can benefit from, whether you are learning these tools for the first time or thinking through how you can teach them to others. This track covers Bible study methods through a series of sessions, including an entry-level story of Scripture workshop, genre work, introduction to the interpretation process, and hands-on practice in groups. If you’ve never thought about tools for Bible interpretation, we hope you consider attending this track, as these tools are assumed in the other tracks offered.

Making Disciples

Jesus made it clear – his followers are commanded to make disciples. Where do we start? How do we continue? What are the practical pieces of walking with another in growth? Let’s talk through how Christ enables us to obey  this commission, to be transformed ourselves and to grow in service to others.
