As College Park Church strives to "present everyone mature in Christ" (Col. 1:28), we encourage you to utilize the resources available to you pursue growth in your Christian walk.

Discipleship Resources

We believe that discipleship is an integral piece of the mission of, “Igniting a passion to follow Jesus,” and should be woven into the fabric of all believers’ lives. Discipleship relationships allow us to live out the mission by intentionally modeling and maturity in Christ and multiplying it in others. Our passion is to see the hope of gospel-centered discipleship affect our own lives, and be used as a catalyst for real life change in the lives of others.
