Journey Partners

“Journey Partners” is a one on one discipleship program instituted here at CVZ in 2009.  The bookmark format allows the participants to engage in their partner’s life, hold each other accountable and lift each other up in intercessory prayer.  The previous Sunday’s sermon is explored in greater depth through questions and scripture reading.

If you are interested in being a Journey Partner for the new cycle (beginning Sept. 17) and being paired one on one with the promise to meet regularly, please contact Pastor Mike or Ruth Knapp.   You are free to continue with a past partnership or begin with a new partner. 

Journey Partners: Look for the shoe in the North narthex containing each week’s cards.

May God richly bless your experience.
