I’m gonna do a series this week “announcing” some of the decisions we’ve made on what Verve is going to look like, outside of our worship services and youth/children’s ministries. How will we connect and grow people and serve our community together?
What is God Stalker University? We are going to offer an eight-week semester of seminars four times a year. (From mid-January to mid March, April/May, July/August , and from mid-September to mid-November.) We’ll probably start out offering three or four seminars per semester and hopefully grow it from there. The seminars will be 90 minutes long, with about 50 minutes of teaching and 30 minutes of small group discussion/interaction. They will be made available at convenient times throughout the week.
A semester might have one seminar for not-yet Christians who are exploring faith, another for new Christians who want to know how to grow, another studying through a bible book, and another on a practical topic like marriage or parenting.
Why “God Stalker University”? We want to grow people to seek and love God with everything they are, and to incorporate Him into every aspect of their lives. The seminars we offer will teach people how. How do you start a relationship with God? How do you grow that relationship? How do you make God the center of your parenting, marriage, work life, finances?
