The Foundations Track is divided into three topics: The Gospel, Spiritual Disciplines and Theology. 

This track is for Christians who want to form a stronger and more balanced foundation in the faith. With each topic you are encouraged to choose one of the suggested books, and to read through the accompanying book of the Bible. Use the books and the Bible readings to prompt your discussion when you meet together. You can purchase each book yourself or borrow a book from our limited supply. It is up to the mentor and mentee to decide how often to meet together, which books to read, and at what pace. 


  1. Prepare ahead of time by reading your agreed upon passages, praying and noting questions as you go.
  2. Meet together, Share about what you are learning, how it applies to your life and discuss each question you have. 
  3. Grow by talking about your struggles and victories in your life, praying for one another and holding each other accountable in the love of Christ.
