Adult Equipping Classes are the primary teaching ministry at Faith. Two classes are offered every quarter, and each year the classes cover nine key practices of the apprentice of Jesus. Please click here for a description of them.
After the service on Sunday mornings, there is a brief time of fellowship followed by the classes listed below from 11:20 AM to 12:20 PM.
Winter Quarter Classes (January 6th - March 3rd)
Class 1: The Resolution for Men
Leader: Joel Tyndall
Description: This is a men’s Bible study in which we are exploring twelve commitments related to characteristics of men of God. They include courage, integrity, faithfulness, honor, justice, forgiveness, and more. It will provide significant encouragement to fulfill all that God calls us to be as spiritual leaders. We are using a book that was inspired by the movie Courageous called The Resolution for Men by Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick, who are pastors at Sherwood Baptist Church. Practices that will be emphasized include developing the mind, building moral virtue, and seeking justice and restoration.
Class 2: Conversations that Count
Leader: Charles Boothe
Description: In this class, we will learn and discuss ways in which we can meaningfully engage others in conversation about the important truths of life. In Colossians 4:5-6, Paul says to “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” To help fulfill this calling, we are using a book by J.P. Moreland and Tim Muehlhoff called The God Conversation, in which they share powerful examples from films, books, television shows, social media, history, and current events to explain and illustrate our faith in a way that connects well with others. About this resource, Lee Strobel said that the authors “have done us a tremendous service by compiling this fascinating and practical volume,” and Alan Andrews, the U.S. President of the Navigators, said that it is an excellent tool to help listen and teach like Jesus and “is a must-read for all who want to help others find faith in Jesus Christ.” Our focus will be on the practices of developing the mind, witnessing to the Gospel, and fostering spiritual community.
PLEASE NOTE: Readings for both classes will include passages from the Bible; if you do not have a good study Bible of your own, please let us know and we’ll help you get one.
