What are the RHI Discipleship Courses?
The Rock Hill Institute (RHI) Discipleship Courses are 7-week courses designed to equip leaders to declare, display and delight in the gospel as members of a redeemed community of sent people .
Our next course, “the Spirit and Our Mission” will run from November 3rd – December 22nd, 2019.
Students will (1) study the ministry of the Holy Spirit through the body of Christ in the book of Acts, (2) explore how they can experience the Spirit’s ministry in community with the help of JD Greear’s book, Jesus Continued, and (3) consider how the Spirit has uniquely gifted them to serve the body of Christ and the world through the Strengths Finders online assessment and group discussion.
The Purpose of the Course
The purpose of our RHI Discipleship Courses is not to simply fill your heads with lots of Biblical truths, but to help you develop (1) Biblical thinking (2) godly character (3) ministry skill. Maturity is when these three aspects of development happen in harmony with one another.
Each Course includes Individual and Community Learning Environments
- Individual Study. Every student is responsible to read all the material in Bible, the books and the reader. Each student will also be encouraged to participate in a Bible reading plan.
- Weekly Meetings—Sunday 4:00-5:30 pm—students will discuss the Scriptures and the readings, seeking to draw out implications for life and their leadership responsibilities. Pastor Dave Addink will oversee the study of Acts and Jesus Continued, and Lora Kesselhon will lead the group discussions of Strengths Finders.
How much do the RHI Discipleship Courses cost?
The Spirit & our Mission Course costs $30/person. This cost covers the cost of two books and refreshments. Please do not, however, let money be a prohibitive factor. Some scholarships are available if you contact Pastor Dave at email@example.com.
