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.
