Discipleship Ministry

Our hope is that a disciples of Christ we engage everyday interactions of life that encompasses Christ. Then to teach the church to engage discipleship through fellowships and also from ministries like sports, schools, and even into the business world. Building each other together through discipleship we are able to teach, grow in faith and evangelize for the sake of the Gospel.

Theological Education

The global church is in desperate need for quality theological education. Majority of the pastors around the world desire to receive higher education to support their local church. At the same time studies have shown that the more educated the clergy and church leaders, the more self-sustaining the church will be in the long term. For this reason both Pr. Tom and Pr. Deuane are in process of achieving their doctorate in theology. To support the church in the USA and the global church.

Leading Mission Trips

We have heart for missions, for this reason we believe that the church needs to engage directly in Global missions. When the church engages in global mission they will naturally engage more in the local community and domestics ministry of the church. Connect with us and Awaking Lives to World Missions to serve in short-term or long-term ministry overseas.
