What is Galilee?

The Galilee Program is a seminar-style, discipleship-based course of biblical studies and practical instruction. It is designed for Christians, aged 20 to 35, who are committed to Christ, His service, and their local church. Its purpose is help raise up of the next generation of disciples and leaders. The emphasis is on inductive Bible study and how to minister to others through discipleship, pastoral care, and evangelism. Galilee is an immersive experience. Together with teachers, disciplers, staff, and students, about 50 participants in total, they study, train, pray, and worship together. They then go out to proclaim Christ.

Graduate Testimonials:

“My favorite part of Galilee is the community. After receiving spiritual training together, we form a network of disciple-makers committed to equipping each other with resources, experience, and prayer toward a common goal.”

-Joel S.

“Seven months after I was saved, I prayed to find a sort of “boot-camp regime” to teach me how to study the Bible. The Galilee Program not only taught me that, but also how to be a woman after God’s own heart.”

-Denise M.

“When the Lord lead me to apply to the Galilee program, I assumed I was going to learn a lot of new things about the study of His word and the Christian life, which I did, but I also learned so much about His people.

The unique aspect of the program that had a profound impact on my life was being able to live among people who lived out the principles of discipleship that I had grown up learning at my assembly. I knew in my head that He must be your life, but it was then that I saw practically how that looked in the life of a believer. Praise the Lord for living examples of true disciples!”

-Alison T.
