Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
- Romans 2:12, ESV
Our goal with education at Wellspring is simple. We want to help people grow closer to the Lord, better resemble Jesus, and become a more active conduit for the Holy Spirit by the renewing of their minds.
That means learning more accurately who God is and what He’s done for us through Jesus Christ. It means understanding better who we are as children of the King, filled with His Spirit to live like Christ. It means growing into our unique calling to affect God’s Kingdom in our homes, our communities, our schools and our workplaces.
Education opportunities take several shapes at Wellspring. From the introductory “We Are Wellspring” class to mid-week Enrichment Classes to the focused intensity of the Wellspring School of Leadership, there are always new opportunities to learn better who God is, what He is up to in our world, and how we can join Him.
Continuing Education is meant to be flexible and relaxed. Just because you can’t invest loads of time and energy doesn’t mean you can’t grow. These classes are typically short-term and periodic – perfect for your busy schedule.
Common Offerings Include:
- Enrichment Classes
- Special Events
Advanced Education is for those who want to get the most of themselves. These intensive classes typically require a lot of time and hard work, but the payoff in personal growth will match it.
Common Offerings Include:
- Wellspring School of Leadership
- Elijah House
