Welcome To Our Discipleship Path At River’s Edge
We are committed to going deeper through our discipleship process and to engage the greatest number of attenders at River’s Edge. This is why we have developed a discipleship path that begins with START, continues with NEXT, and that then leads to CORE. By following this path we experience a consistent context of teaching at River’s Edge that will lead to greater spiritual unity and expression of faith as followers of Jesus Christ. These courses are regularly offered throughout the year.
This is the first step on a Path of Purpose. START is the introductory teaching to the faith in being a follower of Jesus. So if you are still searching, ready, or decided this is your first step. New to River’s Edge? This provides a great overview to what we teach on the subject of Jesus, Personal Spiritual Responsibility, and Water Baptism. This is where everyone who attends River’s Edge is encouraged to START

This is the second step on a Path of Purpose. In these sessions we begin with Become A Partner, which explores the ministry of River’s Edge, and how to connect with our church. In Discover Your Design we dive into the details of your personality, discover your gifts, and see how your design reveals your purpose in life and best fit in ministry. In Develop Your Leadership we help you discover what it means to be a leader at River’s Edge, how you can strengthen your character and gifting to fulfill your leadership potential. All this then leads to Join The Team. Which helps you connect to the opportunities available at River’s Edge to live out your purpose and serve others by using your God given gifts.
