Summer Discipleship Program (SDP) is an amazing 7 week program (May 27th, 2024 - July 5th, 2024) designed for college-aged individuals to deepen their understanding of what it practically means to follow Jesus in community! As an intensive discipleship experience, SDP provides you with a chance to grow in your knowledge of God and in your character. It’s an excellent opportunity to better understand what it means to leverage your life for the gospel of Jesus Christ!
- The beginning of the summer includes several weeks in Austin where we live in community while receiving practical theological and ministry training by leadership at The Austin Stone. This includes intensive evangelism and disciple-making training provided in partnership with our For The Nations mobilizers at The Austin Stone. These trainings also include seminars that focus on how to navigate culturally relevant and tough topics as a Christ-follower.
- During your time in Austin, you’ll engage in rhythms of Bible reading, Bible memorization, corporate and private prayer, fasting, and sabbath! These disciplines help in building a foundation for your walk with Jesus for a lifetime!
- Later on in the summer, we travel together to another city to learn and serve in a different context.
- The final week of the summer we travel back to Austin to spend the week unpacking what we’ve learned, hear from incredible speakers, and be mobilized to our next steps in the fall!
- Did we mention we have a lot of fun during the summer? From movie nights, to other fun events, we always find a way to make meaningful memories together, as we participate in all the moments mentioned above!
