Aspire is the most in-depth leadership training we have ever offered at Hope Chapel… you will develop a deepened understanding of reformed theology, a broad variety of practical skills, and discern where you might best serve the church in the future.
The Aspire class is for those men and women at Hope Chapel who wish to explore a calling to serve the congregation as an elder and deacon. It’s also for those who desire to grow in their understanding of theology and general leadership, but who may not wish to hold an office. This class will provide a safe environment to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and to learn more about Kingdom leadership.
Aspire is the most in-depth leadership training we have ever offered at Hope Chapel. This 8-month class is designed to equip future leaders at Hope Chapel in both sound doctrine and practical leadership skills. It will require significant reading/homework, engagement in discussion, and commitment to attend class twice per month. In other words, it is not something to enter into lightly. That said, the outcome will be worth the effort! You will develop a deepened understanding of reformed theology, a broad variety of practical skills, and discern where you might best serve the church in the future.
We will meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday evenings each month from 7-8:45 pm beginning October 4, 2021 running through May 16, 2022. Participants may miss no more than 5 classes and are responsible to purchase their own books and other class materials.
