The Rabbi-Disciple Relationship: Intro

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for the last program in our Year of Faith series. You won’t want to miss this one!

In this closing series, The Rabbi-Disciple Relationship, Jeff Cavins explains what it means to be a follower of Christ versus a fan of Christ, and how, although the Year of Faith is ending, our walk in faithfulness is lifetime’s journey beginning again each day.

Sign up for this seven part series using the form on the right, and join Jeff each Tuesday and Thursday as he explores how we can conform ourselves to Christ so that we can be Christ to others. We begin Tuesday October 29th.

    How wonderful that we are called to be disciples of Christ! For as His faithful followers, we are “the chosen ones”…
