And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.Ephesians 4:11-16
Opportunities to be Equipped
At Mountain View we have a vision to equip every person for all that God has called them to do for his glory. As we read Ephesians 4 above, we see that ministry is not just for a chosen few people, but it is something that every “saint,” or Christian, is called to be a part of.
As such, we have developed opportunities for every person at Mountain View to be equipped regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. Read below to see the various opportunities we provide for each person’s spiritual and ministry development.
Biblical Foundations is designed to be a one-on-one Bible study intended to deepen your love for Jesus Christ by helping ground you in foundational concepts of the Christian faith. The Word of God is indeed a wonderful treasure, and as a disciple (follower) of Jesus, you will be growing in your love for Him for the rest of your life as you dive into this treasure as well as multiply your life into others.
Three times a year we offer this important 10-week class where we dive into the theological distinctives of Mountain View Community Church. This is an important class will help you dig into God’s Word and study for yourself many important and sometime controversial topics. This class is a requirement for membership and a prerequisite for leadership in many of our ministries.
This is a day we offer once a year that is designed to equip the members of Mountain View Community Church in various practical areas of our lives. Class topics include equipping around parenting, marriage, finances, apologetics, how to study your Bible, practical ministry training, how to share your love for Jesus with others, marketplace ministry, and more.
Several times a year we train those interested in providing LifeGroup leadership and shepherding to our small groups at Mountain View.
