An intentional disciple desires to follow regardless of the obligation. Our goal is to walk with you as you learn to recognize God’s promptings in your life, discover the many possible fruits of discipleship, and become empowered to fully follow God’s will. It is our hope to encourage openness to inspirations of the Spirit as well as bring about an awareness to what types of “output” comes from authentic discipleship.
