Overview

"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."

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: Drama

This eight-week bootcamp immerses participants in the story of the Bible. Together, participants will examine the narrative of the Bible, what ties the Old and New Testaments together, and how to read the Bible as one, unified story. The bootcamp meets once a week for eight weeks, gathering for class and cohort discussion, as well as formation exercises. Plan on having about two to three hours of homework each week.

The group will meet digitally (via Zoom) on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m., starting January 6 and ending February 24.

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