Trunk or Treat | October 30


"A Bible reading laity may save a Church from ruin. Let us read the Bible regularly, daily, and with fervent prayer, and become familiar with its contents. Let us receive nothing, believe nothing, follow nothing, which is not in the Bible, nor can be proved by the Bible. Let our rule of faith, our touchstone of all teaching, be the written Word of God."
-Bishop J. C. Ryle

Theology Bootcamp is a three-part discipleship program of the College Park Church Institute (CPCi) designed to help you grow as a disciple. Throughout each bootcamp, you will learn about the core components of the Christian faith (Doctrine), the meta-narrative of the entire Bible (Drama), and how to flourish as a disciple of Jesus (Discipleship). By weaving together these three elements into a holistic approach to discipleship, men and women have the opportunity to grow in their love for God, Scripture and his mission.

Theology Bootcamp: Discipleship

This two-weekend bootcamp intensive will equip participants to flourish as a disciple of Jesus by teaching the theology and practice of spiritual disciplines. Taught by author and theologian Dr. Donald Whitney, each session will consist of lecture, discussion, and Q&A. Participants will have approximately two hours of homework per weekend and will need to purchase Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life in advance of the start of bootcamp. Child care is provided for those who register for it in advance. 

In order to provide the best experience possible, we are limiting this program. We anticipate that the bootcamp will fill up, so please register now.
