The Discipleship Initiative
Pairing adults and teens in intentional discipleship relationships

DiscipleshipAt Bloomingdale Church, we want to foster a culture of discipleship by pairing each of our teens with an adult who is committed to walking with them on their journey toward maturity in Christ. Making disciples is something that all Christ-followers are called to do; and it can have a profound impact on the life of the one discipling and the one being discipled.

Trips & Fundraising

Give teens the needed change of pace so that they can connect with Christ. Retreats and trips help them to know what following Christ looks like. Sometimes it takes just getting away and removing the distractions of everyday life for a teen to notice God working in their lives. We offer retreats and onMission trips to give our teens the opportunity to take time to serve God and get to know their peers.
