Discipleship

Discipleship Courses & Bible Studies
Growing in Christ is the key to growing a church. This is all about being a good and effective witness of who Christ is and what He has called your church to be and do. Following up, teaching, and mentoring new as well as seasoned Christians are the keys to spiritual growth and the replication of the witness. To that end, VGBC provides several opportunities for spiritual growth through Discipleship Training.  We offer classes in a few different categories: Bible study, Doctrinal Studies, Christian Living, Apologetics, Marriage and Parenting, and recovery and support ministry.  We seek to provide opportunities for people to worship, connect, and grow spiritually.
The Book of Acts: Adult Bible Study.

Designed to Lead
Leadership is influence and Jesus has called ALL of his followers to be a godly influence in this world. As church leaders, business leaders, community leaders, parents, employees, neighbors, students, and a multitude of other roles we have in life, God has called us to make an impact for Him and His Kingdom.

Steadfast Love
There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love.

Precepts
Hosea was the last prophet to the Northern Kingdom of Israel before they were taken captive to Assyria. He cried out to a nation caught up in harlotry, a nation which chose to abandon God and go after pagan idols. In Hosea you can learn how God deals with those who turn away from Him and about a love that will not let you go.

The Gospel of Mark
Throughout his account, Mark unveils a Jesus of unparalleled power and authority but also a Jesus of humility and love. And while this Jesus invites each of us into a greater story through His teachings, He demands we come as active participants. We must acknowledge Him, seek salvation in Him, and follow Him wherever He leads.
