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.
Three times in this passage, Jesus says, "when you pray..." Obviously this is a clear teaching about prayer that highlights, clarifies and guides us to what God expects us to practice. Otherwise...we just speak empty phrases. Perhaps we are not known as a church characterized by prayer because we don't know how to pray! How can God transform us starting today?

Discipleship at Work DG
Your 9-5 might seem mundane, but it is actually God-ordained! He has set you in your workplace and intends for you to be a light and a messenger of the Good News there. Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters." In this course, we will learn and practice what it means to be a faithful witness for Christ at work. We will go over fears and obstacles, investing in relationships, starting spiritual conversations, and ultimately, what it looks like to become disciples who make disciples in the workplace.
An Introduction to the History of the Church
In order to comprehend the present, it’s often important to understand the past. Join us this summer as we seek to look at the history of the church in order to understand, reflect, and mine for the various treasures of wisdom that are waiting to be uncovered.
A People Restored (Bible track)
Israel and Judah had been exiled from the Promised Land. While it seemed that God had left His people, a closer look shows that God continued to sustain His people and ultimately brought them back home. Join us this semester as we study Daniel, the post-exilic prophets, and Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther, to see God working, even in the darkest of times, to restore His people.
