To make disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing His good news with all people, especially with those of Chinese descent, and helping them grow as followers of Christ, so that together we will bear witness of His glory in Austin, in the surrounding areas, and to the ends of the earth.
Behold my servant: crushed and glorified
Isaiah 52: 13-15, Isaiah 53: 1-12
As Jesus revealed that all of the Old Testament is pointing to him (Luke 24:27), in the 4th Servant Song of Isaiah we have clear picture of God’s plan of redemption for His people. We will explore the dramatic nature of this song and thus have a more profound understanding of Christ’s cross and glorification.Listen

Discovery Bible Study | OCT 27
DBS is a simple method of studying the Bible that focuses on allowing the reader to discover directly from God's Word instead of depending on a teacher. This method is bearing fruit and multiplying all around the world, and can be used in essentially any context. If you've ever wanted to help someone learn more about God, either believers or non-believers, but feel anxious about teaching or not being able to answer their questions, this is the workshop for you!

Fall 2019 Discovery Group
John Sung Building
11:00a - 12:15p

Genesis: In the Beginning
Ming Dao Classroom 1

Empowered for Relational Evangelism
Ming Dao Classroom 2
11:00a - 12:15p
Many of us may feel nervous, guilty, or awkward when we think about sharing our faith with friends and family, but we can be empowered for evangelism that is faithful, compelling, and relational. Through this class, we will learn to embrace our inadequacies, face our fears, and talk about Jesus in our everyday conversations.
Beyond Swiping Right: Building Authentic Relationships
Ming Dao Classroom 3
11:00a - 12:15p
God says in Genesis 2:18, "It is not good for man to be alone." He created us to be relational--to have intimate and meaningful connections with Him and other people. In this class, we will combine Biblical principles with professional counseling practices to discover how to establish and maintain authentic and intimate relationships. (Note that the course does not assume you are in a married or dating relationship.)
