Discipleship Treks

Updated: Jun 10, 2023

Here is an overview of CR's plan to support discipleship. This plan is evergreen: it is regularly reviewed and improved, as God's Spirit leads. It is assumed that people start with an interest in Jesus and thrive when they disciple disciplers. Three treks are provided to foster spiritual growth. The general weekly commitment for each trek is to participate in one large-group discipling gathering (e.g. a worship service) and one small-group discipling gathering (e.g. a Connexion Group or a meeting with a pastor).
