What are Grow -Ops?
PAXworship is a place for ‘feeding’ on God’s Word, and responding in worship as the church gathered. Discipleship Groups (D-Groups) are our primary place of peer to peer discipleship applying what we are learning into our lives, living in relationships of accountability and serving on mission together. Grow-Ops are opportunities for those who are connected to PAXnorth be equipped. These Sunday Night classes are being designed to train, challenge and equip the head, heart and hands. The goal is to understand through the lens of Biblical instruction how to live and think in our spiritual life, daily life and life in the everyday world. The goal is if you are consistent in the Grow Ops over a six year cycle you will have received classes equal to a first year Bible College level plus a lot of practical spiritual teaching besides.
Who can take these Grow-Op Classes?
We have classes for everybody who is interested in understanding, growing or discipling others.
What do these classes look like?
FAITH track is open to everyone who might be curious, exploring or arguing through some of the basic principals of a foundational Biblical view. It is designed for an acknowledge stage of spiritual growth. It will also be a great track for those who are trying to wrestle through how they might have conversations with friends, co-workers, classmates, roommates who are skeptically seeking for answers.
VALUE track is for those who are in need of deepening their understanding and practical daily walk in Christ. Gospel Journey 101 is a prerequisite for entering into the VALUE track. It is designed to work through the acceptance stage of spiritual growth. It will be a challenging track for those who have already acknowledged that God is real, the Bible is true but now how does this translate in practical ways into my head, heart and life?
CULTURE track is for those who are beginning to understand and figure out how to grow deeper and broader in their understanding of the Bible. By doing this they also are hoping to engage in the mission of Christ of winning and making disciples both through the local church and in the broader context of the world we live in. This is for those who have gotten hold of the truth that spiritual life is bigger then themselves and they wish to live on mission with Christ and His Church. This is for those who are working out their spiritual life in accountability with the Church. Gospel Journey 101 is a prerequisite for the classes in this track. Some of these classes may require Gospel Journey 202 as well
