At FSOD we strive to show students how to pursue life-changing intimacy in their relationship with the Lord so that they can follow His call for their life. Here are some of the ways we do that:
For every Christian a consistent prayer and devotional life are vital, so we start every day with time set aside for these disciplines. In the first few months, we teach our students many different techniques that they can use in their devotional lives to grow closer to the Lord. We encourage them to find out what works for them and to continue pursing a consistency and a depth in their relationship with God.
“Iron Sharpens Iron” groups (Proverbs 27:17), or ISI, are small accountability groups that are at the core of aggressive discipleship. These same gender small groups provide an atmosphere where students are challenged through trust, vulnerability, open discussion, and encouragement to go after all that God has for them.
Men's and Women's Discipleship are weekly, gender-specific discipleship classes that discuss topics relevant to each gender. These classes dig deep into the core of who we are as men and women, and challenge our students to become more godly in every area of their lives.
Once a week we all gather together for a chapel service. This is the highlight of each week with worship, prayer and fellowship, and a message brought by one of our Pastors, or senior ministry students.
