Aspire U offers seekers, saints, and sinners the opportunity to explore faith and deepen their understanding of the Bible. Classes are typically offered on Wednesdays and run from 6:00 – 7:30 P.M. Courses are divided into two basic categories: Theology and Christian Practice.
Theology classes are intended to increase the learners’ understanding of the Old and New Testaments, Christian doctrine, world religions, and apologetics.
C.A.S.K.E.T. E.M.P.T.Y. is an acronym that helps readers understand the Bible, redemptive history, and how it all points to the life, death, and resurrection of the Messiah as the centerpiece of the biblical story. This winter we will cover the first half of the Old Testament. (Winter 2023)
This is a conversational environment where you can explore faith and experience community. It’s a safe place for you to ask questions and to learn about the Bible and Christianity. You may have questions that you’ve always wondered about but never felt you could ask at church, legitimate questions that would make many Christians uncomfortable. Ask them. Nothing is off-limits. We want to have conversations about the stuff that really matters to you, even when it’s difficult to talk about—especially when it’s difficult to talk about. We believe that God loves you . . . specifically. And we believe He’s big enough to handle your toughest questions, darkest moments, and deepest doubts. We want to honor Him and you by creating an environment where you can be open, honest, and transparent. (Spring 2023)
Classes that focus on Christian practice help learners apply biblical truth and Christian practice to their daily lives.
Based on the book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, this discussion group will focus on how Christians should view the world in light of biblical values and the culture around them and explores how our worldview influences friendships, politics, and faith. The book is not required for participation in the group. (Winter 2023)
The New Frontier is a disciple-making learning community designed to equip participants to make disciples through small groups, home groups, and micro-churches. If you lead an Aspire small group or want to become involved in our small group ministry, this is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Aspire’s missional and discipleship strategies.
