Grow ministry, City Church of New Orleans

WELCOME TO CITY CHURCH OF NEW ORLEANS GROW

It is our heart to see “Christ formed in you” (Gal. 4:19). Our team spends many hours praying, planning and developing workshops that will help you pursue a committed relationship with Christ and live out the purpose that He has designed for you. The church is one body with many members and each one of us is on an individual journey of knowing Christ and obeying His will.

Here at City Church, we believe that following Christ is a life time endeavor and our Lord wants us to not only follow Him individually, but also in community with other believers where true spiritual maturity takes place. That’s why we offer Grow workshops: an opportunity for you to connect with other believers and receive from trained and seasoned leaders. Our prayer is that in this Spirit-filled environment you will connect with God and other believers through His word which produces transformation and growth in your life!

COMMIT TO CHRIST

We want to help you Grow in faith in Jesus. Our workshops are designed to provide relevant teaching, application, and biblical answers to life’s common questions so that the disciple of Christ can overcome life’s challenges and remain committed to Him in today’s world.

EXPERIENCE FREEDOM

We want to help you “know the truth” that is in Jesus. When you grow in the knowledge of who God, learn to hear His voice, and experience His presence freedom will result. Each workshop provides an environment where you can Grow in relationship with God through Jesus by hearing his voice. Freedom is a journey and is vital to living as a disciple of Christ. We believe this happens best when you’re regularly hearing and obeying the voice of God.

LIVE ON PURPOSE

Our goal is to help believers live authentically as a true disciple.

UNDERSTANDING GROW TRACKS AND PATHS

What are Paths?

Long-term approach to experiencing and benefiting from GROW.  Includes five 4 or 8 week classes with four as foundation and one-two elective classes.

What are Tracks?

Classes in a particular subject matter leading in one direction. Eight different tracks with multiple classes dealing with the same discipline.

What is the difference between Paths and Tracks?

One helpful way to understand the difference is to picture railroad tracks and roads. Tracks lead in one direction.  Roads run away from, along side of and across over tracks at different points.  In the same way, Paths include classes from multiple tracks.  Each provides a valuable component to one’s spiritual development.

When a person completes the Paths, they may have gain a sense of God’s calling to a particular type of ministry.  At that time, a person may want to leave a Path and follow a particular type of ministry.  At that time, a person may want to leave a Path and follow a particular Track in Grow.
