The Discipleship Ministry of Warren desires to equip you to grow in your faith so that you might rise above the culture and give shape to every space God has called you to occupy in the world..
Based on Warren’s first two core values, Worship through the Word and Prayer and Authentic Community, we have mapped an intentional path for spiritual growth through Core Classes, Book by Book Bible studies. As the foundation for growth, we encourage everyone at Warren to go through the Core Classes at some point. We invite you to watch the video to learn more.
Core Classes are a one-time commitment, over 5-10 weeks, in a large group setting. Our four Core Classes are 6 Steps to Study the Bible, Storyline of the Bible, Conversations on Core Christian Beliefs, and Habits for Growth. These four classes are offered regularly throughout each year on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. After completing the Core Classes, we encourage you to participate in our Book by Book Bible Studies.

Do you long to pray, but feel inadequate? Are you frustrated with your prayer life? Lifeline Prayer + Praise can help. Lifeline is a Wednesday night prayer gathering designed to equip, enhance, and encourage you in your prayer life. During Lifeline we will be intentional in learning and implementing tools for more effective prayer, and we will actually spend the bulk of our time in prayer.
