Meets in The Road Library

Class fee: $100 covers extensive workbook “7 Strata of Intrapreneurial Organizations,” a Modified Business Model Canvas Workbook, and class handouts.

Disciplined Entrepreneurship is a 6-week, 24-step, MIT-level, systematic approach to entrepreneurship. Utilizing the book “7 Strata of Intrapreneurial Organizations” each week we introduce 6 new videos, and world class teaching, that will cover 6 different themes on how to start a business.

There will be assigned reading and homework each week, and you will be exposed to a lot of information in a short period of time. After 6 weeks you will walk away from the course with a clear understanding if your business idea is viable, sustainable, profitable, and scalable, all before spending a dime on your business.

If you have an existing business, you will learn the core fundamentals to achieve product market fit for your product, revenue growth, and how to increase your business valuation.

Sunday Morning 11:15 AM


Teacher: Joni Shepherd | Location: Conference Room
To end abortion effectively, the church needs to become safe. Abortion is traumatic and permeates the church far more than we realize. It is often chosen under intense pressure with no support for life. Let’s change that! This class will equip us to understand why we need to become a safe haven that proactively champions biblical sexuality and life and redemptively heals those wounded by sexual sin and abortion. We have the resources and power to help heal the wounded and support moms and dads so abortion doesn’t have to become part of their story. COME BE A PART OF CHANGING THE CULTURE! With the Word of God as our guide, we will delve into the most sensitive subjects and learn how God wants to redeem them through us and our church.

The Spirit and the Bride Say, Come!

Teacher: Lisa Hoffmann | Location: Library

The Spirit and the Bride Say, Come! is a response to the reveille call going out to the Church. The Church is waking up, trimming our lamps, and tuning in. The Warrior’s bride is a warrior bride! She is meant to walk in confidence with insight, power, authority, and in accordance to scripture. She doesn’t bury her talents and idly wait for His return but rather is engaged and impacting every part of culture, overcoming the darkness and chaos. This timely class targets anyone who wants to go deeper in their relationshiop with Christ, and is designed to prepare the Church to navigate the profound times we find ourselves living within.

Sign & Wonders
