What is Transformational Discipleship?

TD Vision and Goals

Do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." (Romans 12:2) and "[be equipped] for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up." (Ephesians 4:12)


INTENT – that people who are transforming in their relationship with our God will have a positive, life-changing impact on others.  Parent to child.  Worker to co-worker.  Family member to family member.  Friend to friend.  Neighbor to neighbor.  Coach to player.

IT IS TIME – for the church to take an intentional step to servant leadership development.  As Jesus did with his disciples, this 18-month process will recruit men and women who are spiritually open and willing to go deeper.  


»LIVE deeply connected to your identity as a child of God.

»LEARN to create space to see God work in your life.

»EXPLORE how to best use your strengths in godly service in the Kingdom of God.

»BE more intentional with your relationships.

The Framework

I. Retreats (6)

A retreat kicks off each of the six 3-month modules.  Each retreat introduces a specific arena of transformational growth while allowing for discussion and reflection in a safe, authentic community.  Learn more about the topics covered here.

II. Module Work

Module work between retreats helps deepen and strengthen your transformation.  Click here to read a more in-depth description of what each module entails.

Michelle Naumann enjoyed the portion where we learn about the strengths God has given us.  Watch more here.

III. Coaching

Each participant is assigned a trained coach to proactively partner with you  and help you reach your goals by providing clarity, giving direction, and maximizing your efforts.

IV. Book Group

 Small groups of fellow participants will delve into one book per module.  You’ll  hold each other accountable, offer encouragement, share joys and challenges and pray for each other.  Discover which books will be studied here.
