Micah 6:8

M68 is a 9-month discipleship and ministry training program designed to equip Young Adults for a lifetime of serving Christ. Micah 6:8 says, “…what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” With this as our guide, our vision is for graduates to Identify, Develop, and Experience.

  • Identify: Learn more about own’s specific God-given abilities, spiritual & natural giftings. Gain some life direction & callings to help in serving the Lord for the long-haul.
  • Develop: Deepen one’s knowledge & understanding of God’s Word. Receive a biblically based worldview to help one see, understand, grow, and advance in all areas of life.
  • Experience: Receive weekly training & be provided hands-on, practical experience in serving and ministering within the church.

Every week you will be taught by Pastor Mike Van Meter, Pastor David Matranga, and Pastor Neil Hoffman. They will inspire & train you to grow inward, so you know how to serve well outward.
