Watch the video below to hear about current and upcoming opportunities.

Here at Foundry Church, we strive to be a people who ‘love God, love each other, and change the world’ through all that we do. This includes calling, equipping, and sending spiritual leaders for the church and world. Said a different way, we want to help form and equip faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. What does that mean? By discipleship we mean: the ongoing process initiated and guided by the Holy Spirit, in which we are living in God’s love for us and the world. Discipleship is lived out in the covenant relationships that help cultivate in us the things Jesus embodied—love of God, love of one another, and transformational witness and service in the world.

Discipleship begins in the covenant of baptism, our promise to live and grow as a follower of Jesus, and continues as we engage our faith critically and creatively. No matter where you are on your journey, we have opportunities for you to do that here at Foundry.

Here you’ll find an incomplete and ever increasing list of ways to:

  • wade out into the waters of your baptism, and find easy-to-engage opportunities for learning, growing, and building relationships.
  • dive into vows of baptism, opportunities to be more engaged, and commit to longer-term ways of growing and living as a disciple.
  • go deep as a disciple of Jesus Christ, engaging in long-term and ongoing ways to stay committed and critically engaged as disciples of all ages and stages.
