Meet the New Class!

Summer may be ending, but for School of Discipleship things are just beginning. Another class of students have accepted the challenge and set aside a year to die to themselves so they can know the Lord Jesus more deeply. It’s just been a month but they’ve already:

  • Met roommates and settled into their new home
  • Participated in our GFA community-wide Class Kick-Off event
  • Learned how to effectively use a gospel tract
  • Began their first unit: Learning about Gospel for Asia’s Core Values

Here are some pictures from the first month!

One recent graduate shares why she recommends GFA’s School of Discipleship:

 “The School of Discipleship is such an amazing opportunity to set aside a year to grow in the Lord and be poured into. You get to work for the organization and learn about ministry, but you also have many chances to grow in so many ways personally throughout your year as well.”

— Kalin, August 2017 School of Discipleship Graduate

SD Graduation – The Celebration!

Celebrating a Year

Last month, GFA family and guests gathered together to celebrate the 24th graduation of GFA School of Discipleship’s students. To date, 210 students have graduated from the program, and God is using them in a variety of ways and places to show the world the love of Christ. Graduation is a great opportunity for students to purposefully pause and remember the Lord’s faithfulness throughout their year as they look to the future and continue pursuing Him.

We are proud of each one of them and are so thankful to the Lord for the year they’ve invested at School of Discipleship to seek Him and know Him more.

We hope you enjoy these pictures from graduation!

A few recent graduates reflect on their year at GFA’s School of Discipleship:

“My prayer life has grown significantly. I have seen God move in so many ways and my faith has been strengthened.”

Julia, 2016 Graduate

“I have a greater understanding of God’s character. My faith is greater.”

– Jace, 2016 Graduate

“As a result of giving God so many different little areas in my life, I’ve seen big changes in my heart since the start of this year.”

– Sarah, 2017 Graduate

A Time for Rest and Recuperation

Earlier this spring, School of Discipleship staff and students took a weekend retreat for spending time in fellowship with each other and the Lord. It was a fun time and a wonderful blessing from the Lord!

“I would recommend School of Discipleship to anyone who wants to be challenged in their spirit to serve with their entire being. SD is not what I expected but through practical, real-life teaching and experience we are learning to serve God. No matter where we go from here, we will be able to apply what we are learning.”

– Benjamin

“I would recommend School of Discipleship because I believe that us young adults we need to have a strong foundation about God and His character before we go out into the real world and begin our own lives.”

– Rebekah
