CADRE: a group of people specially trained for a particular purpose.
This January to March we are continuing our evening discipleship ministry here at Westiew. Our desire with CADRE is to create an experience where anyone in their faith journey can gather for relevant teaching and discussion to help them grow in their own journey of discipleship. This semester we are continuing to offer three unique classes designed to appeal to a wide variety of individuals.
Dates: Sunday's / January 19th until March 15th
Location: Westview Baptist Church
Registration for our next Semester of classes is now live.
Class 1: Discipleship Explored - A journey through Philippians
This eight-session journey through Paul’s letter to the Philippians is ideal for believers at any stage of the Christian life. It features brand-new documentary-style films and inspiring real-life stories from around the world, Bible studies and weekly reading plans, and a beautifully redesigned Handbook.
The course instructor for this will be Tyler Hagan. Cost for this course is $20 dollars.
Class 2: Helping Without Hurting
This class will look at how to ease poverty without hurting the poor or yourself. Good intentions are not enough; a path forward is found, not just by providing resources to the poor, but by walking with them in humble relationships. This Cadre course includes videos and group discussions. Students will be expected to read a chapter of the text before each class and to participate in the discussions.
The course instructors will be Bernard Dzirasah, Christa Holten and Gordon King..
Cost for this course is $30 dollars as it includes both the reading matreials and participant guide.
Class 3: Apologetics
In today’s pluralistic society, not every approach to sharing the gospel will work with all people. Being ready to give reasons for the hope we have in Christ means understanding the contextual framework of the people we are addressing. Renaissance man Doug Powell defends the Christian faith in a new key; taking timehonored approaches in apologetics and freshly presenting them for a new generation.The course instructors for this will be Glen Worobets & Jordan Bergen.
Cost for this course is $20 dollars.
Junior Cadre: Extreme Adventures With God
An inductive (Kay Arthur) Bible study geared for 10-12 year olds who want to go deeper in their faith. Together we will help young faith adventurers explore the feats and faith of three fascinating men from the Bible: Isaac, Jacob, and Esau. By studying these Biblical characters our understanding of courage , forgiveness, loyalty and the ability to trust God even when we face disappointment will be challenged. Students will learn how to analytically look at scripture. Class instructors will be Josh Onyeakazi & Dawn Medgett.
Cost for this course is $12.
Please note that while we will try to keep this class enjoyable it may not be for everyone as there is a homework component to it.
