NURTURING MINISTRY

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. - Colossians 3:16

MINISTRY OVERVIEW


The Nurturing Ministry Team works alongside the pastoral staff to facilitate spiritual growth and maturity in our community. Just as the Scriptures highlight the importance of a lifelong learning and grounding in God's Word, so too do we strive to provide the resources, support, and learning opportunities for our members to deepen their understanding in God's truth.

To do so, the Nurturing Team hosts various programs and initiatives including Bible studies, leadership development, mentorship opportunities, seminars, and training in the spiritual disciplines.

OTHER NURTURING PROGRAMS

Aside from our regular Sunday Life Groups, the Nurturing Ministry also provide other opportunities for our community to engage in growth and learning.

APOLOGETICS SEMINARS
Topical Apologetics Session by Our Guest Speaker

About once a year, we have the privilege to invite guests speakers to come and lead a weekend seminar on apologetics regarding various faith topics. As a result of COVID, we hope to host an online Apologetics Seminar this year. Please stay tuned for more details!

TOTAL GROWTH
Intensive Holistic Discipleship Program

Total Growth is a 27 week discipleship program developed and facilitated by Rev. Paul Chan for over 20 years. It is for people who desire to deepen their faith in prayer and Bible study beyond the clichés, share their lives in a vulnerable and honest manner, and cultivate an authentic Christian walk with other believers. This year, we share the joy to have Rev. Chan host Total Growth in our community.

SPECIAL WORKSHOPS
Topical Learning Opportunities

VCBC is avid in expanding our community's theological and spiritual horizon. We regularly invite other speakers and organizations to come to impart their wisdom to us. Some seminar topics in the past include Evangelism & Mission, Faith and Mental Health, Discipleship & Mentorship, and Hermeneutics.
