Galileans

Galileans meet on Sunday nights at 6:30 in the Family Life Center.  This class is for boys 4th grade – 12th grade.

The Galileans is a Missions and Discipleship Ministry for young men entering the fourth grade and continues through High School. Just read below for a more detailed view of what being a Galilean means.

How does the Galilean Ministry work to train young men?

The Galilean Ministry is divided into six levels of study, called steps. Each step contains the basic elements of personal service, mission studies, Christian witnessing, Bible study, and church involvement.

The six steps of advancement are:

 

  • Tyro: - a recruit, or beginner in learning.
  • Fellow: - a comrade, associate, or companion of others who are learning about Christ.
  • Follower: - One who follows; attendant; one in pursuit of; one who copies another; one who attempts to be like Christ, the greatest example.
  • Disciple: - One who receives instruction from another concerning fruitful service for Christ.
  • Herald: - one who proclaims, publishes, announces, or foretells; a messenger of Christ.
  • Ambassador: - One sent forth into the world as the personal representative of the King of kings, the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

By the Time a Boy has completed the Steps…

Within each of these steps the young man will spend time in memorization and of study of the Bible. He will spend time in service to his church, read and study concerning missionary work, and perform personal service projects for his church.

By the time a boy has completed the Steps he will have memorized 263 verses of Scripture, be able to lead another to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, completed outlines on the Life of Christ and the Life of Paul, both based on personal study and research.
