Growth Track consists of four intentional discipleship classes (each lasts 12 weeks) to help those that desire a deeper walk with God and who want an overview of the Bible. Each class is offered every Fall and Spring Semester (runs concurrently with the Metro Groups semesters).
101- Spiritual Formation is an overview of how to grow in your personal relationship with God and learn to hear His voice. We will learn about positioning our lives to know Him more through the spiritual disciplines (such as: prayer, studying God's Word, serving, journaling, fasting, and celebration). The class focuses on responding to God’s deep, irrevocable love, so that we are able to love Him well and love others well. John Ortberg’s The Life You Have Always Wanted is used as a supplementary text. (This class includes an optional weekend retreat.)
201 - Purpose is an overview of the book of Acts with a focus on how you live a life led by the Holy Spirit today and walk toward your God-given destiny. This class will teach you how to study the Bible through a chapter by chapter study of Acts and how to examine your gifts, passions, and values, so that you can live of a life of purpose. The New Testament and Craig Groeschel’s Chazown (Hebrew Word for “vision”) as a supplementary text.
301- Freedom is an overview of key principles in finding freedom and healing for our soul (mind, will, and emotions). This class examines how we have an important role to play in God’s story but reminds us that we have an enemy whose schemes we are called to stand against. God’s heart is to bring us into a place of full healing and freedom from past hurts, current struggles, and anything that hinders us from experiencing the abundant life He promises. John Eldrege’s Waking the Dead is used as a supplementary text. (This class includes an optional time of personal prayer ministry).
401 - Leadership is an overview of biblical leadership and how to steward the influence we have been entrusted because DC Metro's mission to build a God-first culture will be only be realized through catalytic, transformational leadership. This class examines ten characters in the Old Testament to glean leadership lessons from their lives and to understand how we can become godly influencers in our generation. The Old Testament, Oswald Sanders’ Spiritual Leadership, and Tom Rath’s Strengthfinders 2.0 are used as supplementary texts.
