THE STORY INVOLVES YOU
See, think, do.
Many churches do a great job of attracting seekers while leaving believers alone to seek their own spiritual growth.

The Ship is an intensive training community for passionate believers to become obedient disciples of Jesus.
The Story Involves YOU.
Involve yourself with a group of 12-24 individuals that will meet once a week for a year in a relational environment.
A Ship certification is a 13 week program to identify and train disciples.
Online Ship training is a premium discipleship training delivered right to your inbox.

We are just getting started. In the future we will be offering The Ship online training, The Ship Certification, and The Ship Church Training. See below for some information on our Ship Group maiden voyage!
All authority in heaven and on the earth has been given to me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.
Baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, the end of the age.
What is The Ship Group?
It is a group of people passionate about loving God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. This group meets weekly in a relational environment for about a year and then splits to multiply disciples.
What is The Ship?
The Ship is an intensive training community for passionate believers to become obedient
disciples of Jesus.
What is a Disciple?
A disciple is an “apprentice” of Jesus. Someone who is always striving to become the person that would routinely and easily do the things Jesus said to do. A disciple is not perfect and can be very new to following Christ.
Who should apply?
Anyone who is passionate about becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
What is the cost?
The annual cost of The Ship Group pilot program is $150 per individual or $300 per couple and $400 for families with 3 or more children.
What is provided?
All material, child care, youth programs will be provided at no additional cost. Food and drinks will also be provided. We do ask that you bring your favorite Bible. We will be teaching from either the ESV or NIV.
Do I need any certain technology?
We recommend a laptop or desktop computer with internet access, video camera and microphone.
How often will the groups meet?
Our schedule is for 12 months and follows the Fayette County Public School calendar. We will typically meet weekly for 6-8 weeks and then rest for a week or two. Click here to review the entire 12 month calendar.
What if I miss a session?
You don’t have to miss! You will be able to attend sessions online if you cannot physically make the live session. This will be done using Google Hangouts. We will also be recording our sessions so those absent can review the sessions via our own Youtube channel.
What about kids?
Kids are fully welcomed to be apart of The Ship Group. They will participate in fellowship, prayer, communion, and then will have some fun while the adults attend their training sessions. The kids will be supervised and grouped age accordingly. There may be times where parents are asked to volunteer with the kids program. We will be using college aged girls/boys to help with the kids programs.
Are there any prerequisites?
No. Extra material will be made available upon request.
Who will be leading the groups?
Steve Carroll, Wes Johnson, and Kathy Carroll will be facilitating the pilot program. We are not asking you to follow us, but asking you to follow us as we follow Jesus.
