Discipleship Training

What is Discipleship Training?

We believe every believer should be growing in their faith and walk with the Lord. Discipleship groups are the best way to plug in and grow deeper through God’s Word. We have set aside Sunday evenings at 5:00pm for Discipleship Training. Check out a list of our events below. If you have any questions or would like to know more about Discipleship Training, please email rpoe@tabernaclebaptist.org.


Adult Discipleship:

Manology (Men)
Leaders: Todd Parker and Billy Jones
Room: E-333
Description: In this class, participants will study biblical manhood in light of the classical divisions of systematic theology — the Bible, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, humanity, sin, salvation, the church, angels, and the end times. From these doctrines, application will be made to the roles and responsibilities of manhood.
Lesson Materials
The Word of the LORD: Seeing Jesus in the Prophets (Women)
Leader: Lydia McCurdy
Room: E-323
Description: The Word of the LORD is a study on the message of Old Testament prophets. The prophetic books of the Old Testament can often seem confusing or strange, yet this study will help you understand what God had to say to His people in the days of the prophets and how this applies to us today. As we look at an overview of several prophetic books, you will see the hope of Jesus in each book.
Seven Sayings of the Cross
Leaders: Pike Hightower and Doug Belisle
Room: E-334
Description: This class will survey the work of Christ on the cross by examining the seven sayings of Jesus from the cross—“Father, forgive them,” “I Thirst,” “Woman Here is Your Son,” “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?,” “Today you will be we me in paradise,” “It is finished,” and “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
Lesson Materials
Doctrine of Christ
Leader: Patrick Latham
Room: E-118

Lesson Materials
Letters of John
Leader: Brad Wasmund
Room: E-318
Description: In this class, participants will engage in an overview of New Testament letters written by the Apostle John—1 John, 2 John, and 3 John.

Emotional and Spiritual Health

Preschool Discipleship:

Spark Studios – Created in Christ, Designed for God’s Purpose

Kids’ Discipleship:

Bible Skills Fun and Games
Learning Bible skills can be lots of fun! Through an active and fun environment, 1st – 5th graders will work on Bible skills such as naming the books of the Bible, racing to find books of the Bible, learning fun & quirky facts about the Bible, memorizing Scripture, plus much more! Don’t let your child miss out on the fun!

Student Discipleship:

3:15 Faith
Sunday nights this semester our students will learn how to have a 1 Peter 3:15 Faith. Students will learn how to use the techniques, methods, and logic of apologetics to answer questions they face every day. We want to provide biblical responses to the “hang ups” and clear the clutter of false teaching or misconception so the Gospel can be heard unhindered. The goal is to set the wheels of study in motion and lead you to pursue this further in your own life and ministry.
