The Antioch Discipleship School

Antioch discipleship school ADS Brighton

The Antioch Discipleship School (ADS) is an intense one-year discipleship program designed to accelerate growth in your relationship with God and the transformation of your character to be more like Jesus. Give one year to God and be changed for a lifetime.

The goal of ADS is to train and equip men and women to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and the specific call of God for their lives.  Students set aside a year of their lives for an intensive discipleship process where they grow deeper in their relationship with God and with others in their understanding of His purposes for their lives.  ADS is designed to be accessible for a wide range of life stages and vocations with classes taking place on nights and weekends. We believe that, as Christians, we are all called to live missionally and approach life as ministry. ADS is also a first step of training for future church leaders, staff, and church-planters within our movement of churches.
