GOSPEL JOURNEY Courses

Who should take the Gospel Journey Courses?

These studies are for everyone who might be interested, those who are religious, irreligious, curious, ready to jump in and be connected, or cautiously skeptical.

We know that ‘Church’ is a needed community for anyone who is investigating spiritual life. However, not just any church will incubate healthy spiritual growth and development. It is important that each person has the opportunity to investigate and pray through what they believe about God, the Bible, Humanity, the role of the Church in the world, the passions and values of the particular church they are becoming an active participant in.
  Gospel Journey 101 is a requirement for anyone who wants to join a Value Discipleship Group (Value D-Group). Also it will be required to get in on many of the courses that will be offered at PAXnorth.
Gospel Journey 202 is a requirement for anyone who wants to become a member of PAXnorth but is open to anyone who might be interested in knowing more about the membership process in PAXnorth

Gospel Journey 101::
What is Journey 101? This study is designed to be the first steps of introduction for those who are investigating being a deeper part of PAXnorth community, either for a part of or for the life time of their spiritual journey. This study will unfold for you the biblical foundations from out of which PAXnorth finds expression. 

This class looks at the basics for living out of God’s greater mission as a church, understanding scriptures, the Person of God, how humanity began and how we have become what we are, as well as God’s primary intentions and to what lengths He is prepared to go.
  With this in mind we DO ask that anyone who is considering PAXnorth as their church home would prayerfully and with a desire to grow take Journey 101.

Why is Journey 101 required? We believe that this will give you a strong foundation for understanding the basics of Biblical Theology and helping you to understand how a church is designed to live ‘missionally’ in its culture. We would hope that this will inspire you to journey alongside of PAXnorth, or another church community, who is truly seeking to make a difference and raise the ‘value’ of the context in which we together live. If you feel called to engage the culture with us it is important that you understand the spiritual foundation we are coming from.

Journey 101 will be a foundational requirement for ALL those who are taking the initial steps to being a part of PAXnorth, whether they are still spiritual skeptics or if they already hold a PHD in theological studies. For many of the continuing theological studies that we will offer, with few exceptions, Journey 101 will be an initial requirement.

 NEXT GJ101 Class is offered on an ‘as needed basis’. NEXT GJ 101 INTENSIVE [Friday night and Saturday morning] is SEPT 30-Oct1 If you are interested in signing up for the next Gospel J 101 please email info@paxnorth.ca

Gospel Journey 202::

What is Journey 202? This class is the complement to Gospel Journey 101. These two classes are designed to be the first steps of introduction and connection for those who are investigating being a deeper part of PAXnorth community, either for a part of or for the life time of their spiritual journey. Together these two studies will unfold for you the biblical foundations from out of which PAXnorth finds expression, leading to membership as part of PAXnorth Church.
    This class explores basic, biblical theology and how we together both philosophically and practically embody the gospel to the neighborhood in which we live. This study will work through the how we live out worship, discipleship, church governance and reaching others as a local church body together.
    With this in mind we DO ask that anyone who is considering PAXnorth as their church home (becoming an active member) would prayerfully and with a desire to grow take Journey 101 but this is not a requirement to go through the Gospel Journey 202 class. Keeping in mind that to become a member both classes are required.

The Gospel Journey 202 membership course will be offered twice a year, or more if needed. To find out more email us at info@paxnorth.ca
