Equipping and Sending Out
World Changers
through CHRIST-Centered
Community Living and Training
The Elmira Discipleship House is an 11 month training environment for young men and women to encounter Jesus and be launched into their community.

Within any house is a family, and that family has a culture. Their goal is to demonstrate to each other, to God, and to the world what a real Christ loving family looks like. "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love" (Ephesians 4:2). For, the world will know Christ sent us because of our unity (John 17).

Another goal of the house is to strategically transplant young adults into an environment where they can experience an accelerated time of Spirit led transformation. During the 11 months residents will commit to weekly "rhythms" (schedules) that will equip them to:
A. Encounter God regularly through His Word and prayer. This will no longer be laborious work and take     excruciating effort.
B. Live in their royal identity as sons and daughters of The King.
C. Live in humility and surrender. Humility is the fertile ground where the Holy Spirit matures people.
D. Know offense and be set free from its trap.
E. Understand and use their gifts for the building of the Church. This will include commitment to a local church (continuing at their local church) where they will regularly serve.
F. Bless the community. Regular first hand ministry to the community will include nursing homes, children's clubs, house parties (outreach), street blessings, prison ministry, college campus acts of love, prayer walking, block parties.
G. Listen to God and obey God.
H. Pursue a Kingdom vision for their own life.

Various Christ loving teachers with different backgrounds will come into the house to teach on a rotating weekly basis.
