Our vision as a church family is to journey together as Apprentices of Jesus in the now-available Kingdom of God.
While there are many aspects of apprenticeship training we can engage in (click HERE for more information), we believe one of the most helpful, intentional and strategic ways to grow as an apprentice of Jesus is to do so with 1 or 2 Apprenticeship Prayer Partners.
What is an Apprenticeship Prayer Partner? It is one or two people who are intentionally doing life together with you, with a priority around daily apprenticeship to Jesus. Though friendship is likely to develop along the way, the first priority is actually to help each other walk more closely with Jesus. Weekly encouragement, accountability, timely spiritual practices and prayer are all normal aspects of this kind of relationship.
It may take awhile and a few tries to find the right person to journey with in this way, but ask anyone in a life-giving spiritual friendship and they'll tell you that it is well worth it.
We've also created a few tools that you can use to get started!
Apprenticeship Prayer Partner Bookmark: Find this at the info kiosk or in the seat backs on Sunday mornings! This gives you a great starting place in finding an Apprenticeship Prayer Partner, or as you're beginning to meet together.
Apprenticeship Prayer Partner Field Guide: We've put together this great book for you to use as you journey together with your Apprenticeship Prayer Partners. In this field guide, you'll find resources for praying together, sharing together and reflecting. We highly recommend you use this guide in your Apprenticeship Prayer Partner Relationships.
The guide is available for purchase in the lobby on Sunday mornings for $5. Or you can view it HERE. Get your copy today!
