Discipleship School

 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” Matthew 4:19

Jesus gave the first call to discipleship when He invited people like Peter, James, John, Matthew, and others to “Follow me.” And today, through the local church, Jesus extends the same invitation to all believers. The Father’s House Discipleship School was launched in 2006 with a vision for practically equipping and mobilizing modern day disciples within the local church, preparing them for their various roles in life, the marketplace, and in ministry.

What does Discipleship School look like?

Number of Students: TFHDS is conducted when there is sufficient interest in the program and requires a minimum participation of 4 full-time students. If you are interested in this program, let our staff know as soon as possible.

Duration: The program is eight months and runs from September to April.

Schedule: TBA. Class times attempt to take into consideration the needs of students, most of whom work or have other family commitments. Classes typically fill 16 hours a week, spread over the course of 3-4 days (for example. Tuesday 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Wednesday 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m.).

Requirements: Students are required to attend Sunday Services at a Father’s House Church site, or their own home church. Practical service volunteering within the church is also required. Church attendance and volunteer service fall outside of scheduled class time.

What’s Next?

“The opportunity of having one-on-one mentoring from leaders in our church, as well as the hands-on experience—especially the missions trip—were challenging and growth promoting. It’s an experience that all Christians should have.”
