Our discipleship focuses on a 2 to 3-year relationship with individuals whose hearts desire is to strengthen their relationship in Jesus Christ. The first step in that journey starts with an initial set of supplies we call a discipleship kit. Each discipleship kit consists of, An Apologetics Study Bible, a personal prayer journal, a personal study journal, a word study Bible, dictionary and one Bible Blitzes class fee.

Our current need is 500 kits at a cost of $135.00 per kit.
