We believe that Jesus is the Head of our Church. Focusing on the Head is all about knowing Who Jesus is.
In order to know Jesus, we must believe He is Who He says He is. Discipleship in a healthy learning environment helps us understand and apply Truth. Bible studies, book studies, and academic environments that increase our knowledge of Christ will grow us and strengthen the Kingdom.
The Hands refer to the people. The church is not a building but the people inside of it.
The church pursues a life-giving relationship with Jesus and healthy relationships with others. This form of discipleship can be done in connection groups, outreach, and opportunities that strengthen our relationship with Jesus and others. The Hands compliment the Head by being the action behind our knowledge of Who Jesus is.
We believe in total depravity, which is Man’s natural condition apart from the grace given by God that redeems us.
Due to our natural state, we all have a wounded heart at some level. When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we no longer are held captive by our sin, but our heart, although transformed, has been wounded from our past. The “Heart” part of our vision is all about restoring our hearts so we may guard our faith and not let the wounds of our past creep back into our lives. This form of discipleship can be done through Restoration Groups at TGFC. These groups are a systematic approach to the sanctification God desires for our lives. When we can overcome our past wounds, our emotional and spiritual lives have a larger capacity to grow.

It is our responsibility as followers of Christ to guide our families to where God is calling us. This won’t happen by accident: these Family Discipleship Workshops create a foundation & a path for you to lead your family to Jesus Christ purposefully.
How do we lead our families to live a lifestyle of worship? Did God design our homes to be a source of specific visions & missions? If He numbered the hairs on our heads, is there a chance He created us with unique core values that will push back the darkness & build His Kingdom in ways we could never fathom?
Cycle 1: Mission/Vision & Core Values
Cycle 1 helps families develop a Family Mission/Vision Statement & Core Values. After the Workshop, spend time assessing what the Vision God has called you to & the Values He designed you to uphold look like lived out in your daily life. Start small: simply discuss a Value a day with your family & say your Family Vision together weekly. Post these somewhere visible in your home & adapt them as God leads you.
Cycle 2: Time, Moments, & Milestones
Cycle 2 revisits Mission/Vision & Core Values while aiming at giving families time to establish a sustainable rhythm of family discipleship. We intimately look at & capitalize on how we spend our Time, use our Moments, & celebrate our Milestones. We’ll explore Scripture, questions, & structures that can facilitate deep discipleship in our homes.
More than anything else for our children, we seek to see Christ formed in them (as well as ourselves). Discipling generations to be with Jesus & like Jesus begins with setting a firm foundation, & that’s what our Family Discipleship Workshops are all about!
