Formation Apostolate

The Formation Apostolate oversees the Christian Discipleship Formation Program to ensure the spiritual growth of community members for service in the BLD Covenant Community and in the larger church.

“All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.”  (2Tim 3:16-17)

The Formation Apostolate consists of the following:

Teaching Ministry

“So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.”  (Rom 10:17)

“A disciple is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully qualified will be like the teacher.”  (Lk 6:40)

The Teaching Ministry trains and evaluates community instructors and teachers who are assigned to deliver the teaching modules to community members in accordance with the Christian Discipleship Formation Program developed by the BLD Covenant Community. The Ministry is also tasked to facilitate and implement the Teaching Program for the District.
